The Sagas of Surgard the Traveler

Thrill to the the sagas of Surgard the Northerner as he collected tales from across the known lands of man. Stand alongside the heroic and witty Surgard as he faces down foolish giants, singing dwarves, duplicitous wizards, suspicious savages, and worst of all, a monster with an attorney! This collection assembles 13 stories published between 1995 and 2008, and includes two stories never before in print. Most poke fun at some famous myth or fictional tale. The collection is in chronological order, so readers can follow as Surgard gains more stories (and gets more headaches from being a character instead of a listener). Needless to say, the stories in this collection are great for anyone looking for a few laughs with their magic and monsters.
