A heroic goblin? Who ever heard of such a thing?
Jim Hines did. And in this collection, you'll meet the intelligent, brave, scrawny, smart-mouthed, and reluctantly heroic goblin, Jig. From shortly after Jig's birth to his unusual leadership of a goblin platoon, he fights sorceresses, hobgoblins, and his own kind — and discovers what it takes to be a leader and a hero! Here is your introduction to the world of goblins, where deep, dark tunnels are the best homes, with only the occasional tunnel cat or zombie to disturb the gloom.
But goblins aren't the only characters in Jim's stories. You'll find a princess cursed to endless sleep, surrounded by a wall of thorns. Within that wall live the trapped, tormented princes who tried to rescue her — or did they?
Or perhaps you'll venture into a world much like our own, but populated with zombies and fairies working for the police and FBI, or bards and librarians saving the world from all manner of magical creatures.
Or another world where wars are fought by living kites and their Kitemasters.
And just when you think you've seen it all, you'll find an eerily familiar children's show where the puppets and humans are about to have a very bad day — and an even worse night!
Welcome to the many worlds of Jim C. Hines! It's a journey that you won’t soon forget.
