Myth Adventures via Robert Asprin Jody Lynn Nye

MythAdventures or Myth Adventures is a delusion sequence via Robert Lynn Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye. After twelve novels via Asprin, printed 1978 to 2002, he and Nye endured the sequence with seven extra books. After his dying in May 2008, she supposed to finish their plans.

The Myth Adventures are famous for and common for his or her whimsical nature, myriad characters, and liberal use of puns. After the primary guide, each name turns at the similarity between the phrase "fantasy" and the prefix "mis-" or the phrase "pass over". The inaugural name Another Fine Myth puns at the word "some other high quality mess". Chapters are typically headed via made-up quotes via noted or semi-famous individuals.

Indeed, the primary guide was once marketed underneath that name, Another Fine Mess, from Oliver Hardy’s often-used catchphrase directed in opposition to his movie comedy spouse Stan Laurel, supposedly "This is some other high quality mess you’ve gotten gotten me into." (The exact catchphrase referred to "some other great mess".) After it was once too overdue to modify the catalog, Asprin made up our minds that the usage of "Myth" could be a lot better if the guide would turn into a sequence. They modified the name and claimed a typo within the catalog.

According to Asprin, the unique inspiration for the Myth Adventures was once the "Road to…" comedy film sequence, which stars Bing Crosby and Bob Hope as wandering con-artists/adventurers.
