Wind from the Abyss starts with this . . . Author’s Note – Since, at the beginning of this tale, I did not recollect myself nor retain even the slightest glimmer of such understanding as would have led me to an awareness of the significance of the various occurrences that transpired at the Lake of Horns then, I am adding this preface, though it was no part of my initial conception, that the meaningfulness of the events described by “Khys’ Estri” (as I have come to think of the shadow-self I was while the dharen held my skills and memory in abeyance) not be witheld from you as they were from me. I knew myself not: I was Estri because the girl Carth supposedly found wandering in the forest stripped of comprehension and identity chose that name. There, perhaps, lies the greatest irony of all, that I named myself anew after Estri Hadrath diet Estrazi, who in reality I had once been. And perhaps it is not irony at all, but an expression of Khys’ humor, an implicit dissertation by him who structured my experiences, my very thoughts, for nearly two years, until his audacity drove him to bring together once more Sereth crill Tyris, past-Slayer, then the outlawed Ebvrasea, then arrar to the dharen himself; Chayin rendi Inekte, cahndor of Nemar, co-cahndor of the Taken Lands, chosen so of Tar-Kesa, and at that time Khys’ puppet-vassal; and myself, former Well-Keepress, tiask of Nemar, and lastly becoming the chaldless outlaw who had come to judgment and endured ongoing retribution at the dharen’s hands. To test his hesting, his power over owkahen, the time-coming-to-be, did Khys put us together, all three, in his Day-Keeper’s city — and from that moment onward, the Weathers of Life became fixed: siphoned into a singular future; sealed tight as a dead god in his mausoleum, whose every move brought him closer to the sum total, obliteration. So did the dharen Khys bespeak it, himself. . . .

Just in time for the holidays, Perseid Publishing is proud to announce the relaunch of The “Beyond” Trilogy by Hugo nominated author Janet Morris.  The trilogy consists of fantasy classics Beyond Sanctuary, Beyond the Veil and Beyond Wizardwall which have never before been available as e-books.

The re-launch is considered the definitive editions of these books as it includes over fifty thousand words of additional scenes and insights.  A re-release featuring substantial re-writes was made necessary by the proliferation of these volumes on pirate web sites throughout the internet.  It is the hope of Perseid that fans of Janet Morris (and of fantasy in general) will choose this superior, complete edition of these works over the unlawful versions that already exist online.

The “Beyond” trilogy marks the beginning of the novel length stories that take place in the Thieves’ World universe, and makes a fine starting place for readers who are unfamiliar with the work of Janet Morris.

The books are available on Amazon and there is a launch celebration giveaway due to be held on 14th December on https://www.facebook.com/events/248136878676033

Prizes are varied and include CDs, books, and much more.
