Messenger of Zhuvastou

“Great entertainment of epic scope” – Poul Anderson

An outcast, beleaguered and betrayed. Now, he will live again…

In a future where the people of Earth have managed to somewhat unite under hegemonic governments, the universe has at last been explored and discovered.

Earth-born playboy Moris Keniston arrives in customs, wanting to go surface-side of the mysterious and hostile planet Sovold. Galactic rules dictate that he may not disturb the burgeoning culture, and therefore undergoes a physical transformation to match the one of the peoples on the planet.

With shaved head and skin dyed beige, he dons the green tunic of a Messenger of Zhuvastou, known as Zhogs – a knight to the people of this world – giving him almost free reign to pursue his mission.

He is hunting the beautiful Elaine Dixon, who has fled to this primitive planet for reasons unknown.

Though Keniston is the son of a Galactic Senator, an athlete of interplanetary reknown, and survivor of a historic starship disaster, he finds himself wholly unprepared for life on Sovold.

Only his athlete’s reflexes and history of fencing save him at first. However, in his quest to pursue Elaine, he meets companions that help him grow into the man he is meant to be – and finds his true purpose along the way.

Messenger of Zhuvastou is a roaring adventure in new cultures and brotherly bonding that is sure to satisfy any sci-fi enthusiast.

Chieftain of Andor

“Great entertainment of epic scope” – Poul Anderson

An outcast, beleaguered and betrayed. Now, he will live again…

Robert Cleve does not belong. On Earth, he is out of his depth – a semi-barbarian, an atavist in the modern world.

But one day, he answers an ad that will change his life forever.

He is offered an opportunity to live in another man’s body – on another planet, many parsecs away. A man with no ties, decisive mind, and sound body, Cleve is selected to take over the body of warrior chief Doralan Andrah, who is pivotal on his world of Andor, but whose mind is dying.

Cleve’s adjustment to the semi-primitive world is hard and fast – just how Cleve thrives.

He quickly adapts to the new body and skills, learning to become the warrior he knew he always could be.

But his memories of Earth and our treatment of sorcery leaves him vulnerable in a way he never anticipated.

Soon, he finds himself surrounded by a cloud of confusion, assaulted from all sides by unfamiliar and unalloyed powers.

His odyssey begins into the deepest depths of Andor, but he is woefully underprepared for the nameless terrors that await him…
Chieftain of Andor is a gripping sci fi/fantasy adventure, as one man finds himself beset from all sides in a world that is not his own. Will he thrive, or will Andor claim him as its prize?

The Iron Lords

A world in peril, and one man to save it…

A savage tragedy rocked Jarik’s world that day. In one moment he was orphaned, again, without village, without purpose, without anywhere to belong – but not alone.

He set off on a quest for vengeance and glory, to lay waste to the hawkers who had destroyed his village with murder, rape and fire. By his side was his sister Torsy, and inside of him was another. Someone who couldn’t exist, shouldn’t exist, but did.

On his journey across the sea he looks not only for revenge but to unroot his unknown origins, as well as those of Oak, his mysterious counterpart. And to cure his adoptive sister Torsy of her shock and find a place they can truly belong.

Along the way he becomes embroiled in struggles with in godly legend and humanly vices, battling marauders, his host village and social isolation daily.

And now he undertakes his greatest lesson: learning the arts of war.

His destiny is unfolding before him, but down two different paths.

The path of the great healer, or of the violent avenger?

He must decide.

The Iron Lords is a gripping fantasy adventure, the first volume of the War of the Gods on Earthseries.
