BEYOND THE SEA OF DREAMS
Life had never been kind to Joe and Marge. Now, according to Throckmorton P. Ruddygorea stranger who met them on a road that wasn't therethey were due to die in nineteen minutes. But across the Sea of Dreams lay a new and perhaps better life, in a place where fairies danced by moonlight. Joe could become a mighty-thewed barbarian warrior. Marge could be beautiful and find her magical self.
It was just as Ruddygore had promised, plus a great deal more. For this was a world where Hell still strove to win its ancient war, where demon princes sent men into battles of dark magic, and where Joe and Marge must somehow help prevent the coming of Armageddon!

I usually do not read Fantasy/Science Fiction but in 1995 while strolling thru a local book store I happened to pick up "River of the Dancing gods". To my delight, the story was just what I was looking for. It was interesting enough to keep my attention and light enough to take me away. The hero and heroine were average people I could relate to but in situations Ii could never imagine. Well to be brief, I became a Chalker fan with the reading of this book and have since read a number of his offerings. The problem is I would like to read more of the Dancing Gods series but it is really difficult to obtain copies as it seems most, if not all, of the books are out of print.
This book was my first introduction to Chalker's writing. This story is filled with vivid imagery, and is a finely woven tale. Intricate story lines help move it along at a good pace.
