Publisher's Summary

Start at the beginning, in Another Fine Myth, as Skeeve, an apprentice wizard, meets the demon Aahz. Though it's not love, or even like at first sight they form a connection - saving their lives - between them. Follow them in Myth Conceptions, as Skeeve and Aahz test their talent when they decide to take on an entire army themselves and continue on in Myth Directions. Then Skeeve finds himself alone with his own apprentice applicant, a king, in Hit or Myth and must deal with a medieval Mob! In Myth-ing Persons living up to one's reputation can be murder. Can a Character Assassin who tries to discredit the team in Little Myth Marker break up the team for good?

    Love epic sci fi and fantasy, but hate looking of really good books. So many duds out there. I am gamer too.

    "Don't myth these adventures!"

    Out of all the books I read as a teen in the 80's, this is the one I was happiest to see to make it to audible. The wait has been long but worth it. If you ever read Stainless Steel Rat, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Disc World, or Xanth books, you will probably like this one, too. It is set along the lines of medieval times but bounces around many dimensions. The magic of this series is the trouble Aahz and Skeeve manage to get themselves into and out of. There is a lot of word play that is main source of the comedy and interaction. The part I always like best was all the weird and strange worlds and people that Aahz and Skeeve come across. Aahz is a little one dimensional, set in his ways and often falls back on his 'situational ethics'. Skeeve is little more well rounded as he comes into his own, showing a range of emotions and the goodness of his heart. How Skeeve could have ever became a thief, is beyond me, as he always feels guilt towards those he feels he has wronged.
    The narrator does a good job, but I always imagined Skeeve with a little younger sounding voice, but after listening for a bit, that was soon forgotten. He gives all the main characters a unique voice that make listening enjoyable and easy to follow along.

    "So Much Fun!!"

    Noah Michael Levine was a new to me narrator and he was wonderful for this book I would definitely listen to him again…in fact I will listen to him again because I plan on listening to this whole series! But I would listen to him narrate other books too. He has a great range of voices, inflections and accents even though one character does sound like Sean Connery I didn’t care this narrator is the perfect fit for this book!

    Oh this was so much fun! These books had been recommended to me years ago and have been languishing away on my TBR list since then, when I saw on audible that they were finally available on audio I jumped at the chance to give them a try, and now have another series to listen to 18 books I could go broke but this one was so much fun I must listen to more!

    I loved all the characters in this book, I appreciated that the author let readers get to know them as they got to know each other it was a great bonding experience with the characters. I enjoyed the humor and frivolity and also the great story.

    Skeeve is a magician’s apprentice, when his master is killed he ends up being an apprentice to a demon named Aahz as they bounce between dimensions to try to get Aahz back to his own dimension and restore his magical abilities and get revenge for Skeeve’s masters death. Along the way they meet so many great characters. I really liked that the author tells this story through dialogue we still get plenty of world building but it isn’t in overly done descriptions it is in the different characters explaining things to each other. I loved the ending, I don’t want to spoil it but the way they get one over on Issivan at the end is sooo great and not what I expected.

    I will be listening to more of this series this is a short audiobook but well worth the credit I spent on it. If you are a fan of Pratchett and Adams I think you will enjoy this series too!

    "It's really nice to hear this book again"

    Mr Levine has done a very good job of bringing this book , with it's host of oddball characters and puns to life , and a few nitpicky details aside I have to say he did an exemplary job. I was used to the original reader of the series , and it takes a little getting used to , but he has a great range and there is a lot of fun to be had here. Please give it a try !

    "fantasy equivalent to Douglas Adams"

    This series is a light read along the lines of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but in a fantasy genre rather than science fiction. If you like a light farce along the lines of P.G. Wodehouse or Douglas Adams, you will probably enjoy Asprin. Good escapism.

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    "Great family friendly fun"

    Like the others here I've been waiting for these books on Audible for a long time. I've read all the books in the series many times and have gotten more people to read these books than any another other series I've recommended. They're just plain FUN! Even if you don't normally read fantasy don't let that put you off. Many of those I've gotten to read these books also aren't fantasy fans yet love these. At heart they're stories about a goodhearted young man who brings out the best in those around him all while getting himself into (and out of) trouble. The fact that they are at times hilarious is an added bonus. Like others who have read the books before they may find that the voices Mr. Levine gives the characters don't match what you imagined but you soon adjust. For those experiencing these books for the first time he does a fine job so simply sit back and prepare to enjoy. Now I'm off to introduce my grandchildren to the wonderful world of Skeeve and Aahz.

    "Meeting an old friend again"
    Would you listen to Another Fine Myth again? Why?

    When I found this on Audible it will be my third time with this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the interplay between the characters, and the snappy dialog.


    Which character – as performed by Noah Michael Levine – was your favorite?

    He injected character into even the smallest appearances of characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I am knocking this book out in a day of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Hey folks, Mr. Asprin has another series called Phules Company let's hope that gets the audio treatment as well.

    "Fun Adventure and a Good Comedy"

    I have been waiting to discover another good series in which to dive into and I believe this one has potential. In fact, after listening to Another Fine Myth by Robert Asprin I immediately purchased the next book and have enjoyed the sequel just as much as the first book in the series. There are 18 books in this series and thus more to look forward to listen. This book is a fantasy romp and the comedy had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. The narration is another big mark in this books favor and Noah Michael Levine is a name I will note to look for in the future.

    Another Fine Myth is about a boy who is training to become a wizard. He is very new to the arts when he is introduced to a demon named Aahz. Events overwhelm the boy named Skeeve at the very beginning and it is not long before circumstances propel the demon Aahz to becomes his mentor as the two are forced upon a mission to stop evil sorcerer from taking over all the dimensions. With a pervert demon as his companion, Skeeve will travel to other dimensions, like the devils world, in order to save the clods. This is a bit cheeky and you will come to appreciate the joke in that if you give this book a try.

    This book reminds me a bit of the Bartimaeus series due to the existence of a summoned demon who adds comedic effect by mentoring to a sorcerer. I use that as a comparison as well because what really brings this book alive is the narration by Noah Michael Levine with the demon voice of Aahz. This voice may rival Simon Jones take on Bartimaeus. A good narrator can make a bad book good. However, I feel the writing is well done and funny too, so that makes this better than good, and rather, great!

    "Loved it in print"

    I read this in junior high. 20+ years later, I picked up the Audible version. I loved the characterizations and tempo. My 11year old son LOVES the story, and looks forward to listening to it again. I highly recommend this version.

    "Noah Takes It To The Next Level"

    As a culture, we are always looking for the next best thing. Computers, cars, you name it. And, of course, books. Everything from urban fantasy to suspense, young adult to horror. Sometimes, though, what is New isn’t what we really need. Instead, what is Old is new again, or rather, it should be!

    I just listened to Another Fine Myth by Robert Asprin, and narrated by Noah Michael Levine. First printed in 1978, I found the series way back then, and have the whole collection in paper. Recently, however, the books have come out on Audible.com and, of course, I have to buy them all again. How can I help it? Noah Michael Levine does an amazing job of narrating! His voice and cadence are absolutely perfect for the reading. His grasp of accents is amazing, and he really brings the characters to life. I spent all night last night in my workroom, working on holiday gifts, and though I got really tired about 4AM, I couldn’t tear myself away. There is a sample reading on Audible, check it out and you will love it too!

    Why SHOULDN’T Robert Lynn Asprin’s Skeeve be the next Harry Potter?! It’s all there. Witches, Demons, and Wizards, Oh, My! And the Myth series is FUNNY. Like, burst out laughing on the airplane funny. And the voices by Noah take the laugh-out-loud character to a whole new level of laughter. Though Robert is now gone from us, his collaboration with Jody Lynn Nye means that the wonder of the tale lives on, and it is well worth the journey of discovery!

    Skeeve, the main character of the series, is an apprentice wizard. He doesn’t really care all that much about being an apprentice wizard, of course. He was previously a thief, who got busted by the Wizard he was trying to rob. Instead of turning him into a frog, or something just as icky, the Wizard makes Skeeve an apprentice wizard. What are ya gonna do?

    During the summoning of the Demon Aahz, an Assassin comes to call – and that is when things get rather messy. When the Wizard is killed, Skeeve is stuck now with the Demon Aahz, summoned from his own world, and none too happy about it. What follows? Well, you will just have to read the book to find out! Or rather, I would actually listen to it. You will NOT be disappointed if you like funny, well paced, creative and wonderful story lines.

    Enjoy!!!! Highly Recommended

    "read and enjoy don't listen"

    I've read all the myth Inc books to date and enjoyed them. I didn't enjoy the audio I think this is one of those issues where my imagination gave the characters distinctive voices and the narration doesn't do it for me. If you can read the books first.

    "Top quality (Great characters )"

    This is a top read, just finished listening to the audio book version which brought the characters to life, looking forward to the rest of the books in this series, downloaded the next straight away. If you like Terry Pratchett, the up and coming author John P Logsdon you will love this. Highly recommended 👍
