Maureen Birnbaum Barbarian Swordsperson - George Alec Effinger

Maureen Birnbaum, or, really, Muffy, sounds like your typical valley girl type. Clueless, in other words. The interesting thing is that she isn't, and this holds her in good stead in her satirical adventures to places like Barsoom, the Land That Time Forgot and times Lovecraftian.

Robin Hood and company find out, for one, that she is no dummy. Fairly amusing.

3 out of 5
