About the series:
The Myth Adventures series of humorous fantasy novels began in 1978 with Another Fine Myth. Over the next 24 years Bob wrote eleven more books in the series. You can see the covers in their currently available editions on our Cover Gallery page.
In 2003, Bob started working with Jody Lynn Nye, with whom he had written one previous novel, License Invoked (Baen Books, 2001). Since then, Bob and Jody have written six more Myth Adventures novels and nine short stories (collected in an anthology, Myth-Told Tales). Since Bob’s passing in 2008, Jody has continued the series. The most recent novel is Myth-Quoted.
You may have noticed that the books are published in several formats and with different covers. Donning Starblaze was the first publisher, who brought the books out in hardcover and trade paperback, illustrated by Kelly Freas or Phil Foglio. Some months or a year later, they were published in mass market paperback by Ace Books, with covers by Walter Velez. Following Donning’s closure, the next four hardcover and trade editions went first to Meisha Merlin, then two more to Wildside Press. Meisha Merlin is no longer in business. Copies of those editions can still be found at some booksellers. A few years ago, Ace acquired the rights to publish in all formats except for those trade books issued by Wildside Press. Still with us?
For fans of audio books, Audible has issued the entire series (except, at this writing, of Myth-Told Tales). Please visit Audible.com to purchase them. The e-book editions of the first 16 are being released by Event Horizon E-Books, and the new ones are being issued by Ace Books.
