THE WARLOCK'S SON TAKES OFF, AND A NEW ADVENTURE IS LAUNCHED!

His father's a warlock; his mother, a witch; together, they’re the most powerful wizards in the world--or so it seems on the planet Gramarye, where modern technology is the ultimate "magic."  Now their son Magnus Gallowglass, tired of standing in his parents' shadow, is leaving home - in a starship driven by the brain of the robo-horse Fess - in search of fame and fortune.  It's one small step for science - one giant leap for wizardry!

But for someone raised on a medieval planet, the modern world is a strange and confusing place, full of treacherous people and unexpected dangers.  Is Magnus well on his way to creating his own legend?  Or destined for trouble, failure, and an early grave?

About the author

Christopher Stasheff spent his early childhood in Mount Vernon, New York, but spent the rest of his formative years in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  He has always had difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality and has tried to compensate by teaching college.  When teaching proved too real, he gave it up in favor of writing full time.  He tends to pre-script his life, but can't understand why other people never get their lines right.  This causes a fair amount of misunderstanding with his wife and four children.  He writes novels because it's the only way he can be the director, the designer, and all the actors too.

Christopher Stasheff is a teacher, thespian, techie, and author of science fiction & fantasy novels. One of the pioneers of "science fantasy," his career spans four decades, 44 novels (including translations into Czech, German, Italian, Russian, and Japanese), 29 short stories, and seven anthologies. His novels are famous for their humor (and bad puns), exploration of comparative political systems, and philosophical undertones.

Matt Mandrell, unsuspecting graduate student, never imagined his
research would lead him to a strange scrap of parchment that would
change his life forever. . . .





Crossing the void of time and space, Matt is whisked away to an
enchanted world where speaking in rhymes works the most dazzling magic.
There he wins not only fame and power as the Lord High Wizard, but the
heart of the beautiful Queen Alisande. His dreams are shattered, though,
when he learns that he can’t marry his true love; wizard or not, Matt
is just a commoner in this bizarre land.





So Matt makes a foolish vow: to conquer a kingdom, any kingdom, if
that’s what it takes to claim his bride. But, as Matt discovers, in this
world of enchantment, such an oath cannot be broken. He has truly
committed himself to win a crown or die trying.





In search of lands to conquer, Matt sets his sights on neighboring
Ibile, where the evil Gordorgrosso rules with an iron fist and sinister
magic. Matt marches off against the tyrant, gathering a small band of
unlikely allies, including a surly dracogriff, a well-spoken cyclop, and
a damsel in distress. But against Gordogrosso’s foul genius, Matt is
going to need much more than a few stout-hearted companions and some
clever rhymes. . . .





Oathbound Wizard is the newest addition to the Del Rey Imagine program,
which offers the best in fantasy and science fiction for readers twelve
and up.





For all the fans of the classic Her Majesty's Wizard, here at last is
the eagerly awaited sequel--an action-packed, laugh-laden new medieval
fantasy. Matt Mantrell's talent for poetry had won him fame, power, and
the heart of a beautiful queen. But to win her hand, he would have to
conquer a kingdom.
