Again, maybe I'm just getting too old to fully enjoy them anymore.
R. Howell
Secondary characters like Guido, Nunzio and Spyder, while they get a lot of play these days, just aren't grabbing us the way Aahz and Skeeve used to.
machiavelli
Bottom Line: If you enjoy this Myth series you'll definitely like this one!

Format: Paperback
8 dollars for 96 pages and three short stories? C'mon, guys! ...and only one of the three stories was at all satisfying. The first (Skeeve) story didn't need Skeeve to be there. The last (Aazh) Story didn't have a satisfactory ending - it was almost like the first chapter in a much longer story, rather than being complete. Only the one in the middle (Chumly, Tananda, and Guido) had not only a good plot, but tied the ends up. If I wasn't a completist, this would have been a waste of money, and as it was it was about 5 dollars more than it's worth.

Skeeve and friends are back! After Skeeve retired in the previous Myth book, I was a little worried that the Myth books might be at and end. I am overjoyed to find I was mistaken. Moreover, these three short stories, which set the stage for the upcoming novel, show that the our old friends can work just as well, perhaps even better, without the M.Y.T.H. Inc troubleshooters plot device. These stories are as funny and heartfelt as any of the Myth books. Despite its brevity, this book is well worth the price.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
With this induction into the Myth series, the author/s have changed into a short story compilation rather than a long story. There's really not much difference between the short story format and the longer single story format style of book except the short stories are "the-quick-story-to-solve-the-mystery" rather than the longer "could-have-been-30-pages-but-here's-some-fluff-filler-material-that-really-has-no-importance-or-bearing-on-the-actual-story". Asprin started doing this in the later Myth books and it was discouraging to read them for that reason. However, being a fairly loyal reader, I still read them. I missed getting the "Class Dis-mythed" book but this one is definitely better than the two-books-ago one I read. While I am a fan of the series, maybe I'm just getting too old for them to fully enjoy them. As short stories, certainly worth checking out for stories from different characters. As always, the stories are told from first person. Here's the rundown:

1. Bunny has to enter a beauty contest and needs Skeeve's help.

2. Massha and General Badaxe wedding with trouble amiss.

3. Side adventure starring Pookie and Spyder.

4. Chumley, Tananda, and Guido must stop some racketeering at the Bazaar of Deva.

5. Aahz, Nunzio, and Gleep have to help out a princess-fox hunt.

6. Gleep's first person story of ongoing robberies at the King-Mart.

7. Aahz & Skeeve are whisked to Dreamland.

8. Tananda is actually on an assassination contract.

9. And Skeeve considers coming out of retirement when his unicorn Buttercup gets depressed. (pretty blatant political commentary here)

Overall, enjoyable but forced. Again, maybe I'm just getting too old to fully enjoy them anymore. Worth reading for the loyal fan and if you prefer short stories. These were all more direct and to the point mysteries ranging from 15-30 pages a chapter.

Format: Paperback
The first four books contained a solid, workable formula. Two characters we genuinely cared about. I miss them, and I want more of them. Everyone I've ever talked to about the MYTH books feels the same. Secondary characters like Guido, Nunzio and Spyder, while they get a lot of play these days, just aren't grabbing us the way Aahz and Skeeve used to. They're one trick ponies, and the trick's been drilled to death, whereas I don't think the possibilities of the original characters have begun to exhaust themselves yet.

There's still potential here, but I can't help wishing a really decent editor would analyze this and come to the same conclusions the fans have.
