Long ago and far away, some of us at alt.fan.asprin were writing a round-robin collaborative fan-fic piece, based on Robert Lynn Asprin's then-defunct 'Mythadventure' fantasy/comedy novels. If you don't know who Robert Lynn Asprin is, go check out my handy-dandy FAQ page. I contributed some chapters to this story, and, doing my best Phil Foglio imitation, also drew a picture for each chapter.
The fan-fic eventually trailed off and died. I decided this wasn't acceptable, and wrote an epic multi-chapter ending on my own.
This story takes place after Mything Persons, and sort of spins off from there into a alternate timeline from the official books, particularly when my chapters get going. Certain background details are different from the orginal stories as well.
Below you will find the original 13 chapters of the story, my 13 drawings for those chapters, and my ending, which I called 'Myth Communication'. There are no drawings for the 'new' chapters, but who knows; maybe someday I will get inspired and ambitious.
Also... another a.f.a. denizen wrote a short Myth story called 'The Naked Truth', and posted it to the group. Here is the picture I drew for this story.
|THE ORIGINAL CHAPTERS||MY ENDING|
|Chapter 1||Chapter 14a||Chapter 24a|
|Chapter 2||Chapter 15a||Chapter 25a|
|Chapter 3||Chapter 16a||Chapter 26a|
|Chapter 4||Chapter 17a||Chapter 27a|
|Chapter 5||Chapter 18a||Chapter 28a|
|Chapter 6||Chapter 19a||Chapter 29a|
|Chapter 7||Chapter 20a||Chapter 30a|
|Chapter 8||Chapter 21a||Chapter 31a|
|Chapter 9||Chapter 22a||Chapter 32a|
|Chapter 10||Chapter 23a||Chapter 33a|
|If you want to read the story all in one fell swoop, you have various options..|
.txt files. Just the text, which can be read either with your internet browser, or with something like Windows Notepad or Wordpad.
.pdf files. Thanks to the generous efforts of a site visitor, these have been assembled to look as much as possible like an official Starblaze-era print-and-ink MythAdventure novel, with my illustations included. You can either read them as-is, or print out the pages and make an actual book out of them. NOTE: These are large files and can only be accessed with a copy of Adobe's Acrobat program.
And here's a cover if you should want it.
.zip file. The original-chapter drawings. Needs a program like WinZip to open.
