Comments Jorian, Re di Iraz

  • J. Boo

    Clockmaker Jorian becomes King because he accidentally catches the head of the beheaded previous King, which marks him for both for kingship and eventual execution - they take their term limits seriously. With the help of an enchanter, he escapes the headsman, and while pursued by agents of his former government (eager to finish the job) gets caught up in the series of adventures that one would expect to find in amusing satirical comic fantasies - comely maids in peril, barbarian invasions (I pa [...]


  • Gerald Kinro

    This is a trilogy composed of “The Goblin Tower,” “The Clocks of Iraz,” and “The Unbeheaded King.” King Jorian finds himself at the end of his tenure and at the verge of undergoing his kingdom’s method of succession—beheading. His head is tossed into the crowd and whoever catches it becomes king for five years until he is “succeeded.” With the help of a sorcerer friend, he escapes and begins the adventure. This work, however, goes further and is really a satire. Various forms [...]


  • Derek

    Honestly, the antics of Jorian and Karadur wore out their welcome early in The Unbeheaded King. While all three were meandering picaresque adventures, the last seemed composed entirely of digressions around a slender core: retrieving Jorian's wife from the city-state of Xylar. Karadur, instead of being a hapless instigator of trouble on account of his unbounded gullibility (as in the first two), here is an unwelcome source of discouragement and negativity. This forms a drag on the story Camp len [...]

    I wish more people knew about this book. De Camp is more or less forgotten in the younger fantasy circles. It is a fantastic sword and sorcery tale in a fully realized world. It is witty and funny, full of action and more modern view on women than most older fantasy books. De Camp uses his worlds politics to satirize our own politic and our absurd thinking. The character are funny and interesting, thou hardly complex with exception for some of the minor ones. The writing is good and straightforw [...]

    An amusing book. Like all of L. Sprague de Camp's books that I've read, it's very much in his style, which is very distinct. I'm guessing that people generally either enjoy or don't enjoy his style and like or dislike his books accordingly.I find this book is perfect to read while I'm doing something else, like watching football or re-watching a tv series that also doesn't take much concentration.


  • Christopher

    Interesting premise, funny scenes, but kind of boring over execution.


  • Mary Farmer

    Okay fantasy adventures. The humor is pretty heavy-handed and even snobbish, in a way. An entertaining read.


  • Trangised

    This is the first fantasy novel I remember reading on my own as a kid. I cannot recall more than a few major plot points, but it has a place in my heart.


  • Wes

    Fun book, great short stories connecting together to form a over-arcing storyline. I'd recommend it.
