Another Fine Myth (read 12/4/11) Recommended

First published in 1978, this is the first in Asprin’s long-running Myth series.  In the reality that Asprin creates, mythical creatures like devils and imps are actually from beings other dimensions, popping from one “world” to another through a variety of means, including being “summoned” by magicians.  Another Fine Myth is a clever, amusing and well written science fiction novel that leaves me looking forward to reading the next.
