Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Judith A. Sheriff
The daring adventures of twentieth-century college professor Jim Eckert continue in this seventh entry in the series that began with The Dragon and the George (Doubleday, 1976). Having lived for a number of years, courtesy of an astral projection machine, in a magical, medieval world as both feudal lord and occasional dragon, Eckert now finds himself facing both old and new enemies as he fights for the return of his kidnapped son and matches wits and wills with the Gnarly King. Though a reader new to the series will find references to previous titles somewhat annoying, this book can be read independently. It is series fans, however, who will most appreciate Eckert's adventures and Dickson's humor. VOYA Codes: 4Q 2P J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
Kirkus Reviews
Another of Dickson's tongue-in-cheek medieval fantasies (The Dragon and the Djinn, 1996, etc.). Former college professor Jim Eckert now lives in an alternate 14th-century England where he's Sir James of Malencontri, a magickian's apprentice, and also, part- time, a rather dimwitted dragon named Gorbash. This time out, Jim is presented with a fine set of problems: Mysterious holes appear in castle and forest; his adopted son, infant Robert, is kidnapped; Jim joins an expedition to Cumbria on behalf of the king; once again he has trouble drawing on his account at the magickal bank; and finds that his master, the AAA+ magickian Carolinus, is inconveniently absent. Still, Jim will be assisted by humans, Rrrnlf the sea devil, Aarg the wolf, and Hob the hobgoblin, to stop the malefactors from usurping the kingdom. Agreeable and satisfying.
