    Myth-Told Tales is the thirteenth book in the Myth-Adventures series and the first of the series that is a collaboration between Robert Asprin, who created the series, and co-author Jody Lynn Nye, an established fantasy writer in her own right.Myth-Told Tales is not a novel but a collection of three short stories:(1) "Myth Congeniality" - Skeeve is drawn away from his studies to help Bunny win an inter-dimensional beauty contest in order for her to get the prize, something her Uncle, Don Bruce, the Fairy Godfather of the Mob, wants very much to get his hands on.(2) "Myth Calculations" - Chumley, along with Guido and Tananda, investigate a pair of racketeers who are muscling in on the Mob's territory at the Bazaar on Deva(3) "Myth-ter Right" - Aahz and Massha travel to the dimension Brakespear to help a friend and former ward of Massha's, Princess Gloriannamarjolie, win the Wylde Hunt, where the Princess is the object of the hunt and where the prize to be awarded is something apparently everyone wants to get their hands on.Note: Judging by the other reviews, it seems like there may be different versions of this book out with different numbers of stories. The three stories I listed are in everyone's list, but the others are most definitely not in the book I'm reviewing, which is the Meisha Merlin 111 page edition.Quality-wise, Myth-Told Tales is a step up from some of Asprin's more recent Myth-Adventures books, but still a far cry from his early ones in the series. The only story of the three which seemed to bring back some of the humor that really made the series popular was "Myth Calculations". There are a couple of forwards - one written by Asprin and one by Nye - that are mildly informative but in some ways they feel like padding for what is a very short book.Recommended as a merely okay read in its own right but a marginally necessary one for continuity's sake as it sets things up for what happens in the next book in the series, Myth-Alliances.

    As a collection of short stories goes, this one is more true to the characters Aspirin has created over the years, but it still lacks the charm of the original books. I can't put my finger on why. As I stated in my last review, however, in Class Dis-Mythed the authors finally start to get back in the zone, so definitly give that one a try.

    If you're a Myth-Adventures fan they you'll definitely like this book! Be warned that it does has some scenes pulled from previous books, but it has plenty of new content as well! And its just as funny as the rest of the Myth-Adventures books!

    It was a good read, but seemed to be inconsistent in some areas with the earlier srories.Worth it for serious fans of the series, but you don't need to read this collection to move on to the next story in the series.

    These stories were some that were read years before and now the kids love to read. Just glad they can be purchased again after all these years!

    I enjoyed this....long over due collection (if you can call three stories a collection) My only gripe is that with an $8 price tag I would have liked a little more book for the buck. It was good to see the characters back in action but.....a little more would have been nice. For true, die hard, fans only.
