The Compleat Enchanter Summary

The Compleat Enchanter by L. Sprague deCamp

The Mathematics of Magic was probably the greatest discovery of the ages - at least Professor Harold Shea thought so. With the proper equations, he could instantly transport himself back in time to all the wondrous lands of ancient legend. But slips in time were a hazard, and Shea's magic did not always work - at least, not quite as he expected ...This omnibus volume of all of the Magical Misadventures of Harold Shea contains The Incomplete Enchanter, The Wall of Serpents and Castle of Iron

About L. Sprague deCamp

SALES POINTS 'Pure extravaganza and pure delight!' The New York Times #10 in the Millennium Fantasy Masterworks series, a library of the most original and influential fantasy ever written 'Whimsey and fantasy mingled with genius. Lighthearted tales that stand the test of time and rank among the best ever told.' Raymond E. Feist 'The book that introduced me to fantasy and the marvellous concept of scientifically rigorous magic -- and a delightful romp with two of fantasy's finest characters, Harold Shea and Doc Chalmers. Worth falling in love with all over again.' Holly Lisle Part of the Fantasy Masterworks series 'A classic ... the purest example ever written [of] the novel of the created world' Baird Searles 'A determined and conscientous attempt to bring a new gravitas to sword and sorcery' The Encyclopedia of Fantasy; 'A rousing tale of swordplay and sorcery, an appealing love story, and a shrewd and subtle commentary on problems of politics, morals, and philosophy ... It will not only grip your attention but also leave you with so much food for thought afterwards that you will want to go back and re-read it' L. Sprague De Camp Set in a brilliantly realised mediaeval world, The Well of the Unicorn is a fine novel that blazed a trail for much of contemporary fantasy
