THE GUTBUCKET QUEST

by Piers Anthony, Ron Leming

Pub Date: May 1st, 2000
ISBN: 0-312-86463-9
Publisher: Tor

The latest collaboration from Anthony and newcomer Leming, a Native American, differs sharply from the usual fantasy balderdash. Aging, broke bluesman Slim Chance gets zapped by an upward-striking lightning bolt and finds himself in a fantasy land called Tejas, where the evil T. Bone Pickens and his Vipers have stolen a magical blues guitar. Makes a change from the customary mellifluous witches, wicked wizards, enticing hybrids, and leering lechery: worth a try.
