Overview

Jeanette has learned how to go from one reality to another, under her own power. She goes, even before a call, to worlds which the Arkenome is attempting to destroy. There is never any explanation for why he does this. Sometimes she prevents the destruction, sometimes she rescues only survivors, and sometimes she fails.

Her companions travel with her, and some die. She has learned super-human skills, which don't always work. She has destroyed a powerful Arkenome, only to see him replaced by another, who is stronger, more dangerous, more powerful, and more ruthless. She has learned that Arkenomes, and those who want to be, are guided by a super-cosmic intelligence, which will always find another agent if one is lost.

This is the Ecliptor, and she decides to go after it directly, to stop the creation of new enemies, and must somehow get the Arkenome to lead her to it. She and her companions do everything they can to drive him to seek his masters help. She taunts him, evades him, disrupts his perverse pleasure places, turns his slave world against him, pursues him to target worlds and interrupts him before he gets started.

And then, at last, when it seems that she has succeeded, she learns that even the Ecliptor has a master of a higher order. Must she dominate the Ecliptor first? Or can she go directly to his master?

About the Author

Allen Wold was born in south-western Michigan. He began writing on an old portable typewriter when he was about eight. He finished high school in Tucson, Arizona, and graduated from Pomona College, in Claremont, California, where he met his wife, Diane. They married in 1972, and moved to North Carolina, where he became a full time writer. In 1986, he became a full time father, which occupied him completely for about three years. He and his family lived in England from 1995 to 1998.

He has published nine novels (six of which have been re-issued by ReAnimus Press), several short stories (mostly for the Elf Quest anthologies), five non-fiction books on computers (he's completely self-taught, and it probably shows), and a number of articles, columns, reviews, and so forth, also concerning computers (written in language even he can understand).

Under his own imprint, Ogden House, he has published Stroad’s Cross; Sturgis; Dead Hand; Freefoot, his collected stories for Blood of Ten Chiefs; A Closet for a Dragon and Other Early Tales; and Cat Tales — Reminiscences. He is still working on a pseudo-Lovecraftian novel; a space-opera in six parts; and a pseudo-Victorian faerie story.

Allen has been running his Writers’ Workshop at sf conventions for more than thirty years. Several who have taken it have sold stories they started in the workshop, and a couple have even won awards. He also runs a plotting workshop, an interactive lecture, which is a lot of fun, and which people have found helpful.

Allen is a member of SFWA.
