y separately published work icon The Delta Void Stories Tansy Rayner Roberts , 2001-2004 10606860 2001 series - author short story

A series of short stories, all set in the high-fantasy world of Mocklore, centred on Delta Void:

My name is Delta Void, DV for short, and I do stuff for a living. You know, stuff. People need a job done, I do it. It works for me because I'm not suited to just one career path, I'm suited to about a hundred and thirty of them. I have a highly original physiology (shared only by my nearest and most dearly loathed relatives) which allows me to switch personae at will. I can be a fierce warrior one minute and a highly skilled witch the next. ('Delta Void and the Clockwork Man', p.155).

y separately published work icon Hobgoblin Boots Tansy Rayner Roberts , New York (State) : Scrybe Press , 2004 Z1392829 2004 single work novel adventure fantasy At the age of thirteen, half-hobgoblin Bounty Fenetre found herself on her own, which was fine by her. There was a cute chainmail number at the smithy's she had her eye one, once she figured out how to fix it so it bared her midriff. Then Ma Fortuna adopted her and she met Luc, her new stepbrother. Four years later, at the age of seventeen, Bounty is older and wiser, and really wants to Seek Her Fortune. She and Luc ambush a hero and steal his armor, because as everyone knows, the first step to becoming a hero is to look like one. The second step is to be recognized as a hero by the world at large, which surprisingly, isn't as hard as it sounds. Mocklore is a land where magic crashes and smashes through the landscape, exploding with abrasive sounds and colors, the ideal place for a clever half-hobgoblin fosterling and a charismatic hero-in-progress to make their names. But what happens when your reputation gets too big for your boots? (Scrybe Press blurb)

'Because sometimes, it takes cleavage and big skirts to save the world from those crazy teenagers.

'Kassa Daggersharp has been a pirate, a witch, a menace to public safety, a villain, a hero and a legend. These days, she lectures first year students on the dangers of magic, at the Polyhedrotechnical in Cluft.

'Egg Friefriedsson is Kassa's teenage cousin, a lapsed Axgaard warrior who would rather stay in his room and draw comics all day than hang out with his friends. If only comics had been invented.

'Aragon Silversword is missing, presumed dead.

'All the adventures are over. It's time to get on with being a grownup. But when Egg's drawings come to life, including an evil dark city full of villains and monsters, everyone starts to lose their grip on reality. Even the flying sheep.

'Kassa and Egg are not sure who are the heroes and who are the villains anymore, but someone has to step up to save Mocklore, one last time. ' (Publisher's blurb)
