It’s compelling (and often funny) to see how magic’s availability (and its theft) affects Eliott’s journey. Stuff of Legends was a finalist in the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Gibson is now at work on a sequel.

Synopsis

View our feature on Ian Gibson's Stuff of Legends

A true legend rescues maidens...pillages temples...and slaughters evil hordes...
But what does he do when all the fun is over?

When an annoyingly eager young man by the name of Eliott, his Elvish guardian, and a bard-for-hire magically drop into the life of former hero Jordan the Red, the aged warrior wants nothing to do with them. He's had enough of battling the world. But Eliott wants an adventure with the legendary, sword-swinging soldier of fortune-and this hero is about to be forced out of retirement.
