M.Y.T.H. Inc. in Action by Robert Asprin

The young magician, Skeeve, searches for his demon teacher, Aahz, in the intolerable dimensions of Perv, while Guido and Nunzio join the army in an effort to conquer Queen Hemlock

I loved these books in High School & college. The copy on the e-books is terrible. So many errors it detracts from the story. There are typos & clear fails in translating from hard copy to e-books. So much of the humor depends on puns & word plays these errors are a serious fail. Avoid the e-books and get the hard copy.

M.Y.T.H. Inc. In Action (1990) is the ninth Fantasy novel in the Myth series, following Myth-Nomers and Im-Pervections. In the previous volume, Skeeve hunts through Perv for the missing Aahz. He learns much more about Aahz's history and meets Aahz's mother. He offers a reward for information on his scaly friend, gets drunk in a bar, and invests in the plans of a Pervect street peddler.

In this novel, Skeeve is a Klahd from Klah. He is a magician and the partner of Aahz. Now he is the president of M.Y.T.H. Incorporated with his friends as staff and stockholders.

Aahz is a Pervect from Perv. He had been a master magician until he lost his power from a joke. Now he is Skeeve's partner.

Guido is a senior gangster in the Mob. He is now the personal bodyguard of the Great Skeeve.

Nunzio is Guido's cousin and is also a senior gangster. He is now another personal bodyguard of Skeeve.

Tananda is a Trollop from the Trollia dimension. She has green skin and hair and a very voluptuous body. Tanda is Chumley's little sister and an assassin.

Chumley is a Troll from the Trollia dimension. He is also the big brother of Tananda. He uses his Crunch persona to hide his shyness.

Massha is a mechanic from an unknown dimension. She uses devices to produce her magic. Now she is learning real magic from Skeeve as his apprentice.

Gleep is a very young dragon. He can't talk yet, but he has a mean breath of fire.

Queen Hemlock is the consort of King Rodrick of Possiltum. She has visions of conquest.

Big Julie is a retired general on Klah. He had led a huge army for the Mob, but Skeeve offered him a better deal (see Myth-Conceptions).

In this story, Skeeve's pals go to Klah to check up on Queen Hemlock. First they talk to Big Julie to find out what is going on. They find that King Rodrick is dead and Possiltum is waging a war of conquest. The MI team decides to disrupt the army and arouse the population.

Guido and Nunzio join the army. Naturally, they have to be trained in the army way of doing things. Guido thinks that the training is kind of silly, but he tries to be an inconspicuous recruit.

Unfortunately, Sergeant Smiley appoints him as squad leader of a group of trainees. Guido hates being a leader. As far as he is concerned, leaders have all the responsibilities and none of the fun.

After breaking Smiley's arm and leading the trainees in his place, Guido and his squad are graduated early. Moreover, Guido is promoted to Sergeant and his squad is sent out to take over a supply depot. The whole squad is cooperating in the disruption tactics. Luckily one of his squad is a minor genius at organization.

Meanwhile, Massha visits her friend General Badaxe. Tanda acts like a trollop. And Chumley and Gleep support the team.

This tale takes the MI team into deep frustration. Everything they do turns out to be ineffectual or helpful to the conquering army. Guido is even promoted to Lieutenant.

BTW: The MI team does NOT travel to Perv. The cover of this edition is rather misleading. Skeeve does, but he is not even in the picture.

Then Skeeve returns from Perv to help the team. The next installment is Sweet Myth-tery of Life. Read and enjoy!

Highly recommended for Asprin fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of army logistics, Mob methods, and hilarious consequences. If anyone has not previously read this series, the initial volume is Another Fine Myth.

I have read almost every book in the MYTH series so far and even the ones with Jody Lynn Nye as a co-author have been great. M.Y.T.H. Inc. Link is written solely by Robert Aspirin and has that classic MYTH feel to it. One of the few series I'll re-read. I got this because it was too hard to find the books separately without taking chances on non-Amazon fullfilled orders.

A spinoff of the M.Y.T.H. series.

MYTH is a fun read time after time and this one continues the tradition
Usual fare, but definitely a little slower moving and a little slower developing a s well as not as satisfying an ending.
