The Songs of Peter Sliadek (by Henry Lion Oldie)


Traveling over many roads is Peter Sliadek, the wandering minstrel. Peter’s greatest gift? The ability to listen to people. It’s his unique talent and his fateful journey; the heavy cross he bears. Time after time, he listens to the confessions of the people he meets. A highway robber, a magician’s apprentice, and a naive young girl play a literal game with fate – and try to win. A monk and a judge whirl about as opposite poles of a single duality. A genie appoints himself as the angelic conscience of a duplicitous merchant. The son of a fencing master fights swords with words and words with swords. The gauntlet of a wizard knight crawls through the palace chapel at night. The elusive Anika the Warrior fills mercenaries with terror. And finally, Death himself offers Peter a chance to play in the Last Game.

The plot of each novelette relates to a country to which Peter travels: Poland, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, and the Asian world with its florid tales and customs. Cassandra, Khoma Brut, the Borgia, Vlad Tepes, and Michelangelo are characters of alternative history Peter meets during his travels from one country to another one. Together with Peter, you can visit the radiance of Venice, the evil Black Wallachia, the cursed island Montecristo, and the free town of Guldenberg. Each place has its stories and miracles… And skeletons hidden in the closet.

Muitas doenças e acontecimentos aterrorizantes vieram após a libertação do submundo. Um tempo depois, Loris, uma simples Holariense órfã e sofrida, será escolhida diante do destino da vida, para realizar uma importante e forte missão para o seu povo, pois, eles vivem uma opressão vinda dos Firnienses. Mas as dificuldades irão falar mais alto, ela será renegada, a colônia Holariense dúvida da sua capacidade, por ela ser feminina e ter ninguém em sua vida, mas Ginis, seu amigo de infância e uma força de outro mundo lhe trará força e capacidade para realizar essa importante missão.

Não! Pois, todos eles possuem a sua própria vitória.

Pilgrimage to Skara (by Jonathan S. Pembroke)


“It has been nearly two decades since Pell Wendt abandoned power and prestige of Collum. Ruled by the semi-divine Ajudicar, the city had been his home all his life, but no longer. Spurned by the woman he loved, the former pathfinder, adventurer and criminal walked away from his life of escorting promising youngsters to the shrines of power, and retreated to his farm in the Sogras, to live a life of bitter and brooding rejection.

Now, House Kettiburg has reached out with a an offer he can’t refuse: a pilgrimage to Skara, a mythical and dangerous shrine far out in the barbarous Outlands, for the supplicant Keilie – the daughter of the very woman who rejected him.

Trapped by the love his heart cannot deny, Wendt agrees to the pilgrimage and finds himself embroiled in intrigue and betrayal, with far-reaching implications for himself, Keilie, and the tattered remains of the human race.”

Legend of the KhiMara series (by Glenn E. Smith)

“A few centuries ago, on an Earth much like our own…

More than a thousand years ago, rare gems known as KhiMara served as sources of great magical powers for those gifted few born with the ability to harness their energies…according to legend. Now, his wife having been murdered and his young daughter having been cursed by the ancient warlock NaRhumas, Anteri Vasdegahm, former Captain-Major in the Portuguese Republic’s Navy, now a privateer, searches for one of those legendary gems with the hope that when he finds it, he will then be able to employ a practitioner of the ancient dark arts to have the curse lifted from his daughter forever. Unfortunately, not all ancient dark magic is benevolent.”


El Resplandor de la Llama Eterna -Poemas de Auroria nº 1 ( A.A. Fuhrhop)


Mucho tiempo ha pasado desde que los cinco dioses del Origen dieran vida a este mundo muerto. Los pueblos de Auroria han olvidado la lengua común, y las diez razas originales se han distanciado. Alenia, antigua cuna de la humanidad, respetada y temida en tiempos de antaño, es ahora un territorio dividido e indefenso ante la amenaza que se cierne sobre sus fronteras. Para hacer frente al poderoso imperio del oeste, Rolavian deberá reparar los lazos que la muerte de su padre rompió y unificar nuevamente a las Casas Inmortales. De lo contrario, la obscuridad que ya se ha infiltrado, acabará por consumir al reino completamente. Este viaje lo llevará a encontrarse con uno de los misterios más grandes de Alenia, uno que no sólo lo involucra a él, sino también a todos los habitantes de este mundo, dioses y mortales por igual.

Si bien éste no es un libro de poemas, Auroria es un mundo en donde estos son muy apreciados ya sean narrados o cantados. No es de extrañar que los acontecimientos más importantes en su historia se recuerden a través de ellos Aunque gran parte de los poemas se han perdido con el tiempo, los habitantes de los cinco continentes jamás olvidarán el que narra la vida de un legendario rey de la antigüedad. “El Resplandor de la Llama Eterna” trata sobre el comienzo de este poema, sin embargo, las primeras estrofas ya son turbulentas, pues el camino de un rey no es fácil. En este punto de la historia, el reino no sólo se encuentra dividido internamente. Al oeste el imperio vecino amenaza con una nueva guerra, mientras que por el este las criaturas de la Región Obscura atraviesan las fronteras. Una aventura épica que mezcla la espada con la magia, las batallas con la estrategia y la alegría con la tristeza.

Ésta es la historia de un mundo que ya había llegado a su fin.”
