Meet the Author

Pat Hodgell can't remember a time when she wasn't passionately interested in science fiction and fantasy. She's sold stories to such anthologies as Berkley Showcase, Elsewhere III, and Imaginary Lands and has also published four novels. God Stalk and Dark of the Moon, the novels included in

The God Stalker Chronicles, begin her critically praised fantasy saga which is concerned not! only with high adventure, but also with questions of personal identity, religion, politics, honor, and arboreal drift. She earned her doctorate at the University of Minnesota with a dissertation on Sir Walter Scott's Ivanohe, and is a graduate of both Clarion and the Milford Writers Workshop. Recently retired, she was a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in modern literature and composition, and teaches an audio-cassette-based course on science fiction and fantasy for the University of Minnesota.

Par lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in a nineteenth-century wood-framed house, which has been in her family for generations. In addition to writing and teaching, she attends science fiction conventions, collects yarn, knits, embroiders, raises cats, and makes her own Christmas cards.

    Looking for an unusual world?

    The Kencyrath series begins when a young girl by the name of Jame stumbles out of the wilderness. Naturally, she's in possession of Mysterious Items of Power, Pursued by the Undead and has a fair bit of Amnesia.

    But if you're thinking that this will lead to your typical Tolkien-clone fantasy world and adventure...think again. While the author does play with the standard fantasy toolkit, the world she creates and the characters therein will continually surprise you.

    In the "GodStalk", Jame must make an honorable living in the God-ridden city of Tai Tastigon as she waits to find passage over the mountains to the Riverland and her long-lost twin brother. Eventually, she unintentionally ends up with three simultaneous careers...each under a different persona and all quite dangerous.

    In "Dark of the Moon," Jame and her two companions make their way from the city and across a ravenous wilderness (seriously, you wouldn't want to camp in these hills) to attempt to catch up with her brother before he has to lead an army of thousands against a horde of millions. She also ends up in a blood-feud with a creature which is best described as a carnivorous armored unicorn. Oh, and did I mention the parallel dimensions yet?

    A classic

    God Stalk¿. The Three-Faced God created the Kencyrath triple people to end the spread of the Perimal Darkling. However as the evil extended its hold, The Three-Faced God abandoned its people to their dangerous fate especially after the Kencyrath leader betrayed his people. The stunned Kencyrath reacted by disavowing anything godly. A few thousands of years later, young Jame with her God marked silver eyes is exiled into the eerie wilderness to die. However, Jame survives and a decade later with little memory of before the deportation, searches for her missing twin brother Torisen. She fails at her quest, but ends up in mystical Tai-Taistigon where gods and demons co-exist. She becomes an apprentice to the Guild Master Thief Penari and meets Loogan and his god Gorgo, who she kills and brings back to life. <BR/><BR/>¿Dark of the Moon¿. Jame eventually leaves Tai-Taistigon to continue her quest to find her sibling, but also wants to discover who she is. Meanwhile Tori is ten years older than his twin and currently is chieftain of the Kencyrath. However his sister will soon rock his comfortable vainglorious world as she obsesses over giving him their father¿s sword and ring while preparing for the coming of the Darkness <BR/><BR/>Combining these two related 1980s published superb fantasies into one collection leads to a comparative analysis of the support cast in each tale with the results being they are night and day; just like the twins. That brings freshness to both adventures even as each shares the overarching theme of coming of age escapades of a young woman seeking to understand who she is in a realm in which self seems murky at best. Readers will immensely relish the first two chronicles of Jame (the next saga is SEEKER'S MASK, not read by me) as she navigates a world she does not comprehend although P.C. Hodgell obviously does as this weird world makes for an excellent read.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
