Longbottom, the Nebula Award- Behold an unforgettable intergalactic love story, rescued from the mists of time and brought to you by the visionaries behind Mythic Quest, the world-changing video game at the heart of the Apple TV+ Original Series.

C.W. found literary fame with Inside the Caves of Beneroth and Tears of the Anaren, but even his most loyal fans don’t know that Tears of the Anaren began as a short story he wrote in the early 1970s while interning at Amazing Tales magazine. This never-before-published draft is now yours to discover, complete with C.W.’s (extremely) colorful commentary and an Introduction and Afterword by Ian Grimm, the iconoclastic creator of Mythic Quest.

In a workplace focused on building worlds, molding heroes, and creating legends, the most hard-fought battles don’t occur in the game — they happen in the office. Rob McElhenney stars as Ian Grimm alongside Charlotte Nicdao and F. Murray Abraham.

    Liebe es, wie es sich nicht nur in der Story selbst, sondern auch in den Kommentaren, über viele Tropes lustig macht. Tropes nicht in dem Sinne, wie Fantasy/Sci-Fi-Geschichten erzählt werden, sondern wie Autor:innen erzählen.

    An intentional bad short story that ties in with mythic quest season 2 episode 6. Doesn’t take it self to seriously.

    Based off the recent episode of Mythic Quest where we see CW’s back story, this intentionally bad book is very enjoyable with comments added from CW and Ian during the book. A great companion piece to the episode and good fun.

    I thought it be more fun, but it was not. As expected, it was a horrible story, as we knew from the Apple show. It was annotated throughout, but not as much as I would have liked. Because, the story, as bad as it is isn’t that funny, but the interjections were. I just wish there were more of them. Regardless, I’m glad to have read it, as I enjoy the series, and I thought it was a pretty cool idea. And it’s so short it was read in a day. So it was an easy read.

    A very humorous and quick read, especially if you're a fan of the show. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else cause really, it wouldn't make much sense. (view spoiler)[After all, the story itself written badly on purpose because that is the development (and insanity) of CW's character in the show before he joins the Mythic Quest team. (hide spoiler)] This just renewed my faith in being hyped up for season 3 of the show. Can't wait. A very humorous and quick read, especially if you're a fan of the show.

    It was hard to read, English is not my first language but I think I’m good enough with it. However, this was the book which had me checking the dictionary the most, ever. I guess it’s part of the comedy of the book. As part of the Mythic Quest Easter eggs, I think this is a very good book, very funny.

    How do you rate a story that is meant to be awful? It’s very bad, which is to say that it’s fantastic. Very funny, though unintentionally. I loved/hated it. 1 star, but also 5 stars.

    Stupid idea as expected. Funny and well read! However, i think they could have gone even more meta!

    Like a mini extension to an episode of Mythic Quest - if you’re a fan of the show, you’ll enjoy. If you’re not, or haven’t watched the show, don’t bother!
