The Goblin Tower: The Reluctant King, Book 1 | [L. Sprague de Camp]

The Goblin Tower: The Reluctant King, Book 1

King Jorian was rather attached to his head. Hence, he felt his promise to seal the Kist of Avlen, a treasure trove of ancient manuscripts on magic, was little enough a price to pay for a chance to escape his own beheading. But when the quest pitted him against one peril after another - a murderous wizard and his giant squirrel, a castle full of executioners, a marauding troop of ape men, and a voluptuous 500-year-old princess who was also a serpent - Jorian wondered if he'd made a good bargain!

    "Great Fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Goblin Tower to be better than the print version?

    Everything, it reawakens the feel for old fan fiction in me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Goblin Tower?

    Made me want to go back and re-read some of the other old si/fi fan fiction


    Which character – as performed by Charles Bice – was your favorite?

    Classic, if you have not read anything from Camp you need to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    Remember before you order, this is CLASSIC, the author was one of the first big names in Fan Fiction.
    Some times you have to remember the age this was put out, and remember that things were more simple in those days, and the thoughts and idea's they put out also are. This does not in any way date the book too badly. I will read it again and again.
