I’m sort of a sucker for books like this — Terry Brooks was a bit of a Tolkein knock-off that I loved to read as a kid — he wrote the Shannara series — and this other series (called Landover).
It’s about a businessman who’s lost his way in the modern world, and a series of contrivances land him in a magic kingdom, where, you know, he does some stuff. Kills some bad things. Finds a woman. Vanquishes his foes. All pretty standard fare, but I have to tell you that I love reading it — and was fun to read again after 20 years. Not the best writing ever, but fun anyway.
And: it’s free on the Kindle right now. 🙂

Wow. Completely forgot about that series. It was an incredibly fun series, glad to hear it still holds up somewhat 20 years later. I think i’ve still got it stashed in a box somewhere…
I only found this series a few years ago, but I loved it. There was a new book out this year too – “A Princess of Landover”. I keep forgetting to get it – maybe I will now.
I’ve read this one too. Good book.
