The Zork Chronicles tells the tale of Glorian, the supernatural guide, as he assists Mirakles (a muscle-bound hero) in a quest to kill an evil wizard. The characters run around the Great Underground Empire, visiting places familiar to those who have played the Zork games by Infocom. The book, however, is much more than just a tale of the Empire hundreds of years after the "mysterious stranger" pillaged it. Zork Chronicles is a thinly veiled satire which plays upon the traditional roles assigned to characters in epic quests. The humor is subtle, sometimes sarcastic, and always enjoyable.
