Robert Asprin's Dragons Run

Robert Asprin's Dragons Run Lowest new price: $8.98
Lowest used price: $6.17
List price: $16.00
Author: Jody Lynn Nye

In New York Times bestselling author Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye’s newest Big Easy dragon tale, Griffen McCandles is about to give the forces of evil a run for their money…

Griffen already has his hands full running his gambling operation in New Orleans and dealing with his dragon heritage. Now his pregnant sister, Valerie, is missing—possibly kidnapped—and his uncle, Malcolm McCandles, has flown into town for a mysterious meeting with a powerful man who’s been dead for almost eight decades.

And Griffen certainly hasn’t got the time to protect Councilwoman Penny Dunbar, a dragon who’s running for governor of Louisiana—if malign forces don’t take her out first. Griffen learned a long time ago to play the hand fate has dealt him, but with many lives at stake—including Val’s unborn dragon—he’s hoping for an ace in the hole…

Fortunes of the Imperium (N/A)

Fortunes of the Imperium (N/A) Lowest new price: $11.40
List price: $15.00
Author: Jody Lynn Nye

Sequel to A View from the Imperium. Jeeves in space! Rollicking adventure featuring a seemingly dense, lovable nobleman and his indespensible, droll aide, Parsons.

Lieutenant Lord Thomas Kinago sets out from the Imperium homeworld for the Autocracy of the Uctu, a galactic region with a geckolike overlord known, eponymously, as the Autocrat. Thomas is ostensibly on a pleasure cruise with his cousin Jil to enjoy the pleasures of the Gecko culture. (Jil is herself fleeing a spot of trouble in the Central Worlds after she rebuffed the unwanted amorous interest of a local crime boss) 

In fact, Thomas is on a mission for the mysterious Mr. Frank, the head of the secret service, to discover how prohibited goods, including a small fighter ship, are being smuggled into the Autocracy. His crew’s overt assignment is to find out why legitimate shippers are being detained at checkpoints, sometimes for months, without explanation. As usual, Thomas’s reputation for sudden enthusiasm and goodhearted mayhem precede him. It is all his trusted aid Parsons can do to keep his leader on course.

Thomas’s newest interest is superstitions, and he is driving everyone to distraction by telling fortunes, and even inventing a new method or two. Yet while the Autocrat, a new and fairly young Uctu female, finds Thomas a curious diplomat, she also rather likes him—much to Parsons’s relief. It seems Thomas needs free passage within the Uctu home system before he can investigate the illegal contraband trade. What’s more, the smuggling ring is quite determined to cancel Thomas’s visit before he can cancel them.  As usual, it’s up to Parsons to find a way to lead his hapless master to victory—or at least keep him from getting himself killed by a very determined enemy.

Praise for Jody Lynn Nye’s An Unexpected Apprentice:

“An unusual story well-told, with characters it's a real pleasure to spend time with.” —David Drake

New York Times bestselling author Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye up the ante in this tale of dragons in the Big Easy…

As head dragon and owner of a successful gambling operation in New Orleans, Griffen McCandles has a lot on his plate. Especially since the Krewe of Fafnir—a society of dragons—has asked him to be the king of its Mardi Gras parade. Being the king is a huge honor, and despite the extra responsibilities, Griffen can’t resist the krewe’s offer to lead the biggest party of the year.

But not everyone is happy with Griffen’s new leadership status. A group of powerful dragons is conspiring to bankrupt his business, from the inside out. And when a young dragon in Griffen’s employ is murdered, it becomes clear that certain dragons will stop at nothing to dethrone the new king…

The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern

The Dragonlover's Guide to Pern Lowest new price: $26.98
Lowest used price: $0.17
List price: $19.95
Author: Jody Lynn Nye

An indispensable companion guide to the wonderful world of Anne McCaffrey and her dragons



Guaranteed to enrich every armchair traveler's journey into McCaffrey's legendary world, this illuminating guide leaves no stone in Pern unturned! Both faithful fans and newcomers will relish the fascinating history and lore of . . .



THE DRAGONS: How they developed from little fire-lizards into the huge telepathic creatures that carry human riders and fight Thread



THE PEOPLE: How they live, the clothes they wear, the food they eat



THE PLACES: What to see and do in individual Holds and Weyrs



THREAD: Its appearance and behavior, the threat it poses, and ways to combat it



UPDATED TO INCLUDE THE RENEGADES OF PERN, ALL THE WEYRS OF PERN, THE CHRONICLES OF PERN: FIRST FALL, AND THE DOLPHINS OF PERN

A much-needed update to the classic companion to Anne McCaffrey's canonical novels and numerous short stories about Pern, this book includes a few recipes, information about knitting patterns, Craft and Hold badges, and more. As a reference, it is marred by the lack of cross-referencing within the book, although there is an index, and by the lack of scales with the drawings of various animals and places. It will be invaluable to readers like me who can't recall just where they read that name before, or what Weyr a rider is from, or where that small Hold is, and it provides a useful overview of the high points of Pernese history--though it's no substitute for the pleasure of reading the stories!
