The first book in this collection is MYTH Inc. Link, and it features a series of mini-stories, each from a view point from one of the many characters that have joined the Great Skeeve along the way through his many journeys. Because of this, they are told in a variety of different styles. However, the lack of cohesion made this book suffer, and to me it served to illustrate that Robert Asprin may have been running out of ideas for his series, though because it was a successful series needed to keep putting out books. To me, it really adds nothing to the series overall or to the development of Skeeve. If this were a stand alone book, I'd have rated it one star. Because this is a 2-in-1 book, it gets a better ranking.Yes, Myth-Nomers and Impervections is much better. It feels more like the Myth series and returns its attention to Skeeve as he goes in search of Aahz. This book still has its setbacks and downfalls, and it is nowhere near as good as some of the other Myth novels that came before it, it is familiar in both the writing and the focus of the story. I will say that I did miss the other characters from the series as this book focuses almost entirely on Skeeve and his experiences on Perv as the boy from the backwater dimension takes on a dimension similar to Manhatten, and he is as much a fish out of water there as a farmboy would be in NYC. It does introduce a couple of other characters, such as Pookie (a Pervect bodyguard) and Kalvin (a djinn).
