With his friend Max, a sword-swallowing giant whose chronic cough makes every performance a potential tonsillectomy, Otto embarks on a rollicking journey filled with feats of derring-do, wondrous magic, and beautiful maidens well, beautiful women.

About the Author
Praise For Every Inch a King…
“Turtledove is a master at weaving details of ordinary life into a much bigger canvas to produce a world that so easily could have been our own.”
–Tulsa World, on Blood and Iron
“Turtledove manages the difficult feat of telling a story that is consistently funny–and wistful, exciting, tragic and swashbuckling at the same time. The characters are intensely human and the setting marvelously Ruritanian, down to the smallest impeccable detail conveyed with a master's economical brushstroke.”
–S. M. Stirling
