    A fantasy book that pokes fun at itself and its genre It puts heroic fantasy into a HOLYWOOD setting of agents to the hero s, central casting for the bit players and props With the bards as witness and purveyors of the saga s I am just sorry that he didn t use the oppurtunity to have his mai...
