Title to be determined Thoughts and opinions from an incurable nerd. But first, they raise some traveling funds by rescuing a damsel from a dreadful dragon The dragon's really into theatre and takes on the damsel as his partner. Soon our heroes encounter their next foe, Hendrek of Melifox, armed with the enchanted warclub Headbasher, which no man can truly own, but can only rent!
Then they meet Death; a woman with a chicken that poops gold; an assassin named the Dealer of Death and who loves to strangle wild pigs ; and an enclave of monks who worship Plaugg, the Moderately Great. Very much in the vein of Robert Asprin's "Myth" series, which started as a send-up of heroic fantasy and swords-and-sorcery tales.
As with Asprin's Skeeve the apprentice, Gardner's Wuntvor must handle the magical burden for his master in Skeeve's case, his original teacher was assassinated; his second lost his powers as a prank by the previous guy. Wuntvor is incredibly clumsy, but he means well, and his successes are more from screwing things up than from being competent in magic.
