Swords of the Horseclans

( 4 )

Overview

The blood-soaked blade of war.

For seven hundred years, the Undying High Lord Milo has been building his Confederation, leading the Horseclans slowly across the lands once known as the United States, absorbing city-states and nomadic tribes alike, some by peaceful means, some by the sword.

Overview

The blood-soaked blade of war.

For seven hundred years, the Undying High Lord Milo has been building his Confederation, leading the Horseclans slowly across the lands once known as the United States, absorbing city-states and nomadic tribes alike, some by peaceful means, some by the sword.

But now his enemies have banded together into an army far larger than Milo can muster. Led by an ancient and evil intelligence, this wave of unstoppable destruction is thundering swiftly down upon the Confederation forces.

And Milo has no choice but to call upon all his allies, from the smallest troop of mountain warriors to the notorious pirate ships of the Lord of the Sea Isles, in a final desperate attempt to save the Confederation from seemingly certain doom...

Meet the Author

Robert Adams (1932-1990) was a career soldier whose Horseclans series drew on his military background to lend verisimilitude to the exploits of 26th Century of immortal mutant warriors in a balkanized North America. The Coming of the Horseclans (1975) was the first of 18 novels in the sequence, which ended, with The Clan of the Cats (1988), only on account of the author’s death.

His non-Horseclans work included two other series. Castaways in Time (1980) and its five sequels were a mix of alternate history and time travel. The Stairway to Forever and Monsters and Magicians (both 1988) were the only volumes to appear of a projected fantasy series.

He also co-edited several anthologies, among them Barbarians (1985, with Martin H. Greenberg and Charles H. Waugh), four Magic in Ithkar volumes (1985-87, with Andre Norton), Robert Adams' Book of Alternate Worlds (1987, with Pamela Crippen Adams and Martin H. Greenberg) and Robert Adams' Book of Soldiers (1988, same co-editors).

    In book #1, The Coming of the Horseclans, the immortal Milo Mora

    In book #1, The Coming of the Horseclans, the immortal Milo Morai and his nomadic Horseclans tribes trekked from the western Great Plains to the East Coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Their goal was to establish a new homeland by the sea. Now, accompanied by Mara, his "undying" wife, and Aldora, an undying Ehleen (Greek) woman, Milo plans to build a new, improved nation, free of the technology and modern weaponry that brought about the destruction of the old world.

    Forming a new Confederation means uniting and/or conquering the many tribes and city states currently populating the East Coast, such as the fierce Ahrmehnee (Armenian) tribes and mountain folk living in the Appalachians, as well as city states formed by Ehleen (Greeks) and other European invaders now dwelling in the Carolinas and other former southern states. In book #2, which takes place several generations after book #1, Milo continues his subjugation of the Ehleen, moving southward from Pennsylvania toward Georgia where King Zastros and his massive army of over 120,000 men pose a serious threat to the emerging Confederation. Milo will need to call on all his allies--Ehleen, nomads from the west, and Lord Alexandros, leader of the pirates from the Sea Isles (former Bermuda), to save the Confederation from seemingly certain doom. And once again he will confront the witchmen from the Witch Kingdom (former Florida), who continually sow dissent in order to destroy the Confederation and rebuild the United States as a scientific dictatorship.

    Book #2 marks the end of the nomadic Horseclans journey. From this point on, novels in the series focus primarily on politics and military campaigns and engagements. Readers who prefer stories of the Horseclans folk will have to jump ahead to later books, written as flashbacks in time: #7 Horseclans Odyssey, #12 A Woman of the Horseclans, and #13 Horses of the North.

    Horseclan Home Mossball Field

    Her is a flat field with short fresh and perfect, soft green grass. It has little goals of twigs and cobwebs for the net. Of to the side of the field, some cobwebs held down a few extra mossballs.
