Perseid Press is proud to release “The Reader of Acheron” by Walter Rhein. “Reader” is the first book in the “Slaves of Erafor” series. The novel is a heroic fantasy that takes place in a post-apocalyptic dystopia in which reading has been outlawed and human exploitation is prevalent.
Janet Morris is the editor of the work, and is famous for being one of the more celebrated contributors to the “Thieves World” shared universe. The first three Thieves World novels: “Beyond Sanctuary,” “Beyond the Veil” and “Beyond Wizardwall” have also recently been re-released from Perseid.
Walter Rhein is most well-known for his novel “Beyond Birkie Fever” which was selected for the 2012 Chippewa Valley Book Festival. His first novel “The Bone Sword” was published by Rhemalda Publishing in 2010 and is scheduled to be re-released by Harren Press in February 2014.
“The Reader of Acheron” is the beginning of a fairly ambitious project, and further stories in the series are in development.
