  • Immerse yourself in a grand and dangerous adventure. In a world both familiar and strange.
  • A world where magic and gods still exist.
  • Meet deities, beings, and exiles from Earth’s pantheons. Encounter warriors, huskarls, satyrs, hoplites, dark and evil mages, and strange beings from myths of pre-history up to the age of iron. 
  • Match wits with the likes of Loki, Zeus, Athena, Odin, Amun-Ra, Coniraya, Viracocha, and even Dionysus. Escape plots and schemes played by powerful gods of life and death.
  • Find the truth behind the dark and otherworldly beings from the Lovecraft mythos.
  • Play with dire wolves, drakontes, lamias, keres, amphisbaenae, a sphinx, ice giants, creatures of nightmares, empusas, gigas, minotaurs, vrykolakasjotnar, dokkalfr, to name a few.
  • Survive being in the middle of wars between civilizations and races. Suffer the arrogance and stupidity of gods and men alike. Cross paths with beings who don’t like you. Thor, Ares, and the Incan death god Supay, to name three.
  • Be burdened with a quest to save yourself and your humanity in the brutal and primordial world of Adar.
  • A world where scientific pursuit will get you a lightning bolt or two. Probably five. All at the same time.

 

The Accidental Archmage
BOOK ONE
Ragnarok Rising

Available on Amazon Kindle

What if you fell through a crack in reality? Like those people disappearing in plain sight you’ve read about.

What if you find yourself in a strangely familiar world? A world full of Earth’s mythological beings, lost civilizations, and people from its primitive and brutal past? Where magical energy still exists. Where gods play games among themselves, with the fate of mortal men as pawns. A land where a sword is deadlier than a five-inch thick contract drawn by a hotshot lawyer. Would you survive?

That’s Tyler West. Alone, lost and bewildered, the three moons in the sky made it clear he wasn’t on Earth anymore. It’s not a game. It’s real. And there’s no coffee, pizza, fries, or his favorite show on HBO.

 

The Accidental Archmage
BOOK TWO
Gifts of the Greeks

 

Available on Amazon Kindle.

Tyler’s journey continues. New misadventures, new friends, new foes, new skills, new knowledge. New encounters of the female kind.

More deities become aware of Tyler as he continues his quest to survive, reach his potential, and carry out his burden.

Amid convoluted plans designed by divine acquaintances of old and newly met gods, what’s an ordinary guy from Earth to do?

The Accidental Archmage

BOOK THREE

Blood Wars

 

 

Continuing our lost mage’s epic journey through the magical and extremely dangerous world of Adar.

Escaping the convoluted schemes of the Greek pantheon, Tyler finds himself with an old acquaintance, the Incan deity Viracocha.  His son, the sun god Inti, is dead. With the Aztecah Empire and its powerful pantheon of deities on the bloody road to more conquests, the deity asks for his help. A request he could easily refuse.

Except Viracocha is not alone is asking for his aid. Two other pantheons have made their presence known to the young mage. And the Egyptian deities are watching how he will decide the matter. To add to his burdened conscience, the rise and dominance of the Aztecah pantheon would mean a million or more new human sacrifices. Resulting in extremely overpowered bloodthirsty deities.

What’s a newly minted Elder apprentice mage to do? Involve himself in a blood war?

 

Coming 2018 on Amazon

The Accidental Archmage

BOOK FOUR

VOID LANDS

 

An epic fantasy on a strange yet familiar world. With a modern twist.

Leaving the bloody Aztecah conflict behind, Tyler pursues a cult of dark Elders responsible for the orgy of blood magic and a war for empire. A chase which leads right into the Void Lands. A vast territory where even deities fear to tread.

Bordered by powerful empires dominated by new pantheons, the First Mage is again faced with the plots and machinations of gods and men alike. To stop the conflict which threatens to engulf the eastern part of Adar, he has no choice but to try to stop the shadowy overlords of the Aztecah Empire.

But to reach the Void Lands, our mage has to deal with Loki. A deity he suspects of having his own grand play for dominance. And Tyler doesn’t know who is worse. The Norse god of mischief or the dark Elders?

Magic, deception, power, plans within plots, mythological beings, and creatures, dark and evil mages, lost lore, devilish artifacts.

And an Aussie gamer in the mix. A level 62 paladin, though.

It is of the fantasy-horror genre.

Email Account for Queries and Notifications

Hi.

I have this failing of not being able to check in with the blog regularly. I agree this may create difficulties with respect to notifications. Especially when I intend to post short stories on this site. Another possible issue might be readers want to privately ask about the world-building and the story (happens). No spoilers will be given :D.

To resolve the above matters, I created the following email for the sole purpose of addressing the above.

emb.iwrite@gmail.com

Every time something is posted, those on the email list of the above email account will be notified. Your email addresses will be confidential. Create a new one, if don’t feel comfortable. With respect to questions about the books, the characters, and the plots (there’s the main plot, of course), feel free to email me. If you don’t understand any part of the story, don’t hesitate to ask.

I should warn you that I have a vague idea of some aspects which I think will clear themselves up in subsequent arcs. The story and the world-building sometimes take a life of their own and deviate from whatever guidelines I have previously prepared. I guess Picasso was right.

Live life and may the Creator guide you always,
Edmund

STORIES OF ADAR: TBA

Hi. I will be posting short stories from Adar’s past. The adventures of explorers, mercenaries, ordinary individuals, and other characters. Still finalizing the concept but it will be more of the horror-fantasy genre. It will be a series of short stories and an addition to the world-building effort for Adar as a world.

Keep posted. Constructive comments will be welcome and highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Introduction to ARCANUM ASTRAY

COMING 2018 on AMAZON

ARCANUM ASTRAY:

The Remarkable Adventures of Master Professor Lucius K. Henry, S.M.*

*under appointment to His Imperial Highness, The Emperor of Burgundy

 

An alternate history. With fantasy and humor spicing the mix.

A battle won. A Duke victorious. History changed with one missed deadly blow.

Three hundred years after winning the decisive Battle of Nancy, the royal house of Charles the Bold had turned a dukedom into an Empire.

That’s the world of Master Professor Lucius Henry. High Mage of the Order of the Sacrum Abies. Summus Magister. High Professor-at-Large of the Imperial University of Learning, the elite institution of higher magical education in the Empire of Burgundy.

Magical knowledge had flourished and evolved for more than three hundred years. A tool, for better or for worse. And now it is the cornerstone of civilizations, empires, kingdoms, and mankind’s very way of life.

But something is terribly wrong. Magic is disappearing.
