About the Author

Jody Lynn Nye lists her main career activity as ‘spoiling cats.’ When not engaged upon this worthy occupation, she writes fantasy and science fiction books and short stories. Before breaking away from gainful employment to write full time, Jody worked as a file clerk, bookkeeper at a small publishing house, freelance journalist, and photographer, accounting assistant and costume maker. For four years, she was on the technical operations staff of a local Chicago television station, ending as Technical Operations Manager. Since 1987 she has published 45 books and more than 110 short stories. Although she is best known as a collaborator with other notable authors such as Anne McCaffrey (the Ship Who series, the Dinosaur Planet series), Robert Asprin (Dragons and the Myth-Adventures), John Ringo (Clan of the Claw) and Piers Anthony, Jody has numerous solo books to her credit, mostly fantasy and science fiction with a humorous bent. Her newest book is Fortunes of the Imperium (Baen Books), the second of the Lord Thomas Kinago books, which she describes as “Jeeves and Wooster in space.” Over the last twenty-five years or so, Jody has taught in numerous writing workshops and speaks at schools and libraries, and teaches the two-day writers’ workshop at DragonCon in Atlanta. When not writing, she enjoys baking, calligraphy, travel, photography and, of course, reading. Jody lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with her husband, Bill Fawcett, and Jeremy, their cat. jodylynnnye.com --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book continues the adventure, but lacks the thrill of the other books and the serious quest that it tries to be. It is however very well written and entertaining. Left looking for more than a quick happy ending and a deeper sense of purpose. Too much time spent on describing places in chapters and not enough in others. Good reading.

Mythology Abroad (1993) is the second Fantasy novel in the Mythology series, following Mythology 101. In the previous volume, Keith found a farm for sale that met the needs of the Little People. Keith lost Marcy as his girlfriend and gained Diane.

Keith got the Gillington Library designated as a historical landmark. He also discovered who had been trashing his room and who had been leaking information to the press. Keith even managed to pay the taxes for the Elven business on time.

In this novel, Keith Doyle is a red-headed student at Midwestern University. His family has Irish ancestry. He is a very persuasive talker and is very enthusiastic about the Little People. He also likes pretty girls and really likes Diane.

The Master is the headman of the various clans of Little People in the Gillington Library. The Master is rather old for a Little Person. He teaches a small study group and has recently been accepting Big People into his classes.

Holl is a Little Person in his forties, but he looks about twelve. He is a member to the study group. He is called the Maven. He was the firstborn in Illinois.

Diane Londen is a Health Science Major at Midwestern. She has been a member of the study group for most of the semester. She is Keith's sweetheart.

Michaels is an operative in the Secret Intelligence Service, a minor British agency. He is a very nondescript man who is seldom noticed in a crowd.

In this story, Keith and Holl go to Scotland. Keith is joining an archaeological tour group and Holl is looking for bellflowers used for Elven marriages.

While some see this book as a travelogue I enjoyed it as a good story. Doyle and Holl set out on an archeological for credit tour in Scotland and then a short visit to Ireland. They both do excavations on a couple of sights. This is where Doyle, in his never ending search for the myth and lore of the past, runs afoul of a bodach and gets cursed. He can not say anything about women or money. The bodach also takes Doyle underground. This causes Holl to call for backup. The back up arrives in the form of the Master and Doyle's girlfriend. Doyle is found plus an amazing artifact. When things settle down the four of them go to Ireland. Here Doyle is trying to track down his ancestors and Holl and the Master are looking for long lost relatives. They do find a village of the little one's relatives and one even stows away to come to America. Doyle ends up with a long lost cousin's contact info at the end. This book has some humor, some nice dialogue, some nice ethnic background, and is well tied to together.

While I have had the other books in the series I was missing this one, couldn't find it anywhere. Finally Amazon got it. Just as great as the others. If you like elves, fairies, legends and magic you have got to get not only this book but the rest of the series. You can't miss with it. Jody Lynn Nye has away of making it so you not only get caught up in the story you get involved with the characters to the point of rooting for them. Here's hoping she writes more to this series.
