Ein Autor, den ich noch überhaupt nicht kenne. Ich hab zwar die ersten drei der Castle-Bücher auf Englisch, aber eben aus diesem Grund hab ich sie bis jetzt noch nicht gelesen. Er wurde von diversen Funny Fantasy-Autoren hochgelobt und beim Verkauf (bei Ebay, wo sonst) mit Pratchett und Adams verglichen.

Die Skyway Trilogy ist mir dementsprechend völlig fremd, ich weiß auch nicht, ob die humoristisch ist oder nicht. Sie stand mit auf den Buch-Inlets.

Den Titelbildern nach zu urteilen, spielt die Handlung aber klassischerweise in einer mittelalterlichen Burg mit 144.000 Türen, hinter denen jeweils neue Dimensionen und Welten warten, mit von der Partie sind Dinosaurier, Monster, Golfspieler, Dämonen, einäugige Froschwesen und vieles mehr.

Die Castle-Reihe



Castle Perilous (1988):
Aus dem Klappentext:
Yesterday he was an unemployed philosophy major. Today he lives in a castle... ...that's worlds away from home. His best buddy looks like seven feet of walking shag carpet, and the girl in his life's from California. In Castle Perilous, everyone has some magical talent, and behind each of the 144.000 doors there's a new world to explode. There's only one hitch. There's a reason it's called CASTLE PERILOUS.

The King of Castle Perilous is time-trapped in that weird realm world known as New York City.

Will anyone make it back in time to thwart the invasion? Or will Castle Perilous become a... CASTLE FOR RENT

Castle Kidnapped (1989):
Aus dem Klappentext:
The magic of Castle Perilous has gone awry, dumpingits guests into wildly unlikely worlds. Computer whiz Jeremy, who never comes closer to exercise that absolutely necessary, is trapped on the planet of golf- crazed dinosaurs. Our hapless hero Gene finds himself on the planet of Amazon women, claimed as the love slave of their buxom queen. Unless Lord Incarnadine can pull the plug on his malfunctioning Castle, he's going to be facing the empty wall of... CASTLE KIDNAPPED

Castle War! (1990):
Aus dem Klappentext:
Castle Perilous is still tottering from last year's battle with the Hosts of Hell, and regaining stability proves a hard balancing act. Before Jeremy can design a program to calm the tremors of the universe, an alternative wicked reality appears which threatens to topple everything! Castle P. must face its evil twin, replete with its own dastardly doppleganger army--war with the shadow self ensues as Good vs. Evil battle it out in the 144,000th dimension!

Castle Murders (1991):

And where is the murder weapon? The rambunctious revelers at Castle P. join in on a treacherous treasure hunt for party favors of a decidedly deadly nature ... the murder weapon must be hidden behind one of the 144,000 doors, or will it be buried in the back of the next victim?


Castle Dreams (1992):
Aus dem Klappentext:
Who will claim the throne now that Lord Incarnadine, King of the Realms Perilous, is dead?

Bride Of The Castle (1994):
Aus dem Klappentext:
Gene and Linda's wedding seems to bring out the best in Castle Perilous ... even if that's not much better than the worst.
