The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. My son loves that book lol.

Just wanted to say thanks again to BenG. I found the book on Abebooks and picked it up for a song, and that was the story I was looking for

Can anyone help me to identify a series of fantasy books that I read many years ago, and enjoyed, but have forgotten the name of?

The series involved a computer programmer from California who crossed to a "parallel world" where his programming abilities corresponded to magical powers. I remember there being several books in the series, and I'm fairly sure that the word "Wizard" appeared in all the titles.

Anyone recognise it from my description?

YES! Thank you - I've been racking my brains over that one. .

I see the first book in the series is available at Amazon UK as an eBook - only released a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully the others will follow.

Check Baen too. They have it. They also have The Wizardry Compiled for $5.00. And Wiz Biz II: Cursed and Consulted for $4.00. This one contains The Wizardry Cursed and The Wizardry Consulted together in one volume.

I will be getting these too. I read them in pb years ago and want them in ebooks.

Doh! I have every eBook Baen have ever published, so of course I've got these. That must be where I read them originally. Thanks again .

I seem to have four of the five in the series, anyway. Don't seem to have the last one, "The Wizardry Quested". Still, four books is enough to keep me happy for a while .

You might also enjoy the Incomplete Enchanter series by L. Sprague DeCamp and Fletcher Pratt - only they use formal logic to move between worlds, and the worlds they move between are all from classic fiction. they're great fun.

I didn't see Wizardry Quested on the Baen list - where is it?

Also, what is the reading order for these books? my main resource, FantasticFiction.co.uk didn't have them.

"Wizardry Quested" isn't on Baen's list. It must have been published by them previously on paper, but it doesn't seem to be available as an ebook.

The order is shown at FF. See:

Sounds interesting. Amazon has The Wiz Biz for $7 which fantastic fiction shows is an Omnibus... does it include all 5 books?

EDIT: Opps... never mind, I see that is not for Kindle... many of the reviewers also say how bad the editing/typesetting of this is.
