Omaran Saga

Omaran Saga — (1986-1988) Publisher: Omara: The last surviving domain of the human race, where magic is a heresy punishable by death at the hands of Simon Wargallow and his bloodthirsty Deliverers. To this land of repression and darkness comes the giant called Korbillian — an exiled mage crossing ruined dimensions to confront the terrifying forces that destroyed his world. Armed with awesome forbidden powers, he gathers the hidden strength of Omara to his side — leading his small, magical band through mysterious realms of wickedness and wonder… toward the lost city of Xennidhum and the ultimate battle against an all-powerful evil.

A Place Among the Fallen by Adrian Cole

In the world of Omara, belief in gods or magical power can be punishable by death. But when Korbillian arrives from out of a storm-tossed sea, there is no denying something is at work that’s beyond explanation. Korbillian hails from another world and he’s on a mission to destroy the evil growing from an earthen mound in the distant land of the east. However, as powerful as Korbillian is, he can’t do it alone. Along the way, he must recruit as many others to the cause as he can. Korbillian must convince the non-believers that if they do not help, Omara will meet the same demise as his home world. Out of misfits, ruthless enforcers, fellow refugees, rival soldiers, and even Omara’s animals and plant-life, an army is formed. But will they be enough? And are they really Korbillian’s allies or just fodder to be sacrificed for the cause?

fantasy and science fiction book reviewsNight of Heroes — (2011) Publisher: Assigned to administer the closure of a crumbling inner city Athenaeum, Mears finds himself caught up in an extraordinary cross-worlds venture, where the heroes of his comic books, pulp magazines, and fantastic novels fill its landscape. His only route back to the sanity of his own world lies in coordinating these disparate heroes into an unlikely team, banding them to oppose a fiendishly evil master-mind’s plot to unleash unspeakable dark gods upon the world. Drawn from a vast trove of pulp and super-hero sources, from H. Rider Haggard through Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard to H. P. Lovecraft and Sax Rohmer, NIGHT OF THE HEROES plunges the reader into a bizarre world where anything ever read about becomes very much alive — and invariably kicking!
