A Fate Worse Than Dragons

In an attempt to win the hand of Princess Gloria in marriage, Sir Terry slays a dragon — only to discover he’s killed the dragon in a neighboring kingdom and inadvertently earned the devotion of the wrong princess. And everyone knows that getting stuck with the wrong girl is truly a fate worse than dragons.


“A brisk and well-plotted little adventure that keeps all the charm and humor of his earlier work, but with a more focused and confident approach to the story. The most satisfying John Moore novel yet.”

SF Reviews

“If he hasn’t quite reached the level of L. Sprague de Camp, then at least he’s moving in that direction.”

Critical Mass

“The latest delightful fairy tale parody by John Moore. Wonderful word play, enjoyable characters, and a page turning story all contribute to making this the feel good book of the year.”
