Welcome to Gramayre - where witches, warlocks, elves, and gnomes are real; where a spoiled girl-queen and an army of teenage witches, and ragtag beggars battle an overwhelming force of rebel knights and time-travelling anarchists for the future of the most unique, and perhaps most important, planet in the galaxy.

This is what cynical, hard-bitten, intergalactic spy Rod Gallowglass faces when he and his robot horse, Fess, try to bring peace and democracy to this magic-ridden Renaissance-age society. Rod's mission is threatened at every turn by anarchists, communists, and double-dealing royalists playing vicious political power games. Things are made even worse when Rod's advanced technology gets him labeled a warlock despite his constant denials. Help comes from the most unexpected sources when he meets an ancient ghost, the King of the Elves, and the most powerful witch on the planet.

This classic science-fantasy novel has been completely remixed to address issues with uneven volume some readers have experienced.

Gramayre comes to life in 11 hours of dramatic sword-and-sorcery, featuring well-known narrator Dennis Regan and a full cast.

    " A good, fun series that will keep teenagers entertained and quiet for a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/15/2014

    " Likable and a fun read. Dont expect alot of science or depth but do enjoy just a nice easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carole | 2/2/2014

    " Another fun read from Stasheff. For one, I love the combination of science with fantasy. But I think my favourite thing is all of the nods to real history and literature. I'm sure there were bits that I didn't catch, but those that I did definitely made me smile. It was like being a party to an inside joke, except this time I got to be proud of myself, because it wasn't at anyone else's expense. Each bit that I recognized continues to be there for anyone else to see, if only one has either already had the educational background, or is curious enough to seek it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 12/22/2013

    " While an interesting premise, this series is definitely not as good as Stasheff's other. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 12/21/2013

    " Fun relunctant hero fare. Reminds me of the Retief books by Keith Laumer. Very tounge and check. "

    " Loved this book in my early 20s. Still love it. This time I listened to the audiobook, which has numerous cast members. Haven't listened to an audiobook like this, but I enjoyed it. I still recommend this book to fantasy lovers.l "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gale | 9/1/2013

    " Read this in the very early 70's.... my tastes have changed so much, I couldnt relate to it now at all. At the initial reading, I thought it was fab, so much so I never forgot it and was why I looked for it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 7/27/2013

    " I loved the voice in this book, and the approach to magic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 6/2/2013

    " Just re-read this; still excellent. Fantasy meets Science Fiction. A little political intrigue, romance, and a little bawdy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darren Varney | 5/9/2013

    " Surprising good read - so much so that I am reading the next one now "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Philbrick | 5/11/2012

    " a little dated and the philosophical and political overtones were a little to salient at times. "
