Overview

The Waters of Eternity by Howard Andrew Jones

Dabir and Asim return! From acclaimed historical fantasy writer Howard Andrew Jones comes this collection of the short adventures that launched his career. Venture into the time of the Arabian Nights with stalwart Captain Asim and the brilliant Dabir as they hunt an unseen killer that craves only the eyes of his victims, and pursue a dark entity haunting the halls of an opulent mansion. Ride with them on a desperate journey to preserve a terrible weapon from Byzantine agents, and seek the waters of eternity to save a dying girl's life. In six tales brimming with mystery and sword-slinging action Dabir and Asim stride forward into adventure. With nothing to shield them but Asim's sword arm and Dabir's wit, the two heroes must unravel sinister puzzles, confront dark wizards, rescue fair maidens, and battle the terrifying monsters of legend.

Includes four chapter preview of the first Dabir and Asim novel, The Desert of Souls.

About the Author

When not helping run his small family farm or spending time with his amazing wife and children, HOWARD JONES can be found hunched over his laptop or notebook, mumbling about flashing swords and doom-haunted towers. He has worked variously as a TV cameraman, a book editor, a recycling consultant, and a college writing instructor. He was instrumental in the rebirth of interest in Harold Lamb's historical fiction, and has assembled and edited 8 collections of Lamb's work for the University of Nebraska Press. His stories of Dabir and Asim have appeared in a variety of publications over the last ten years, and led to his invitation to join the editorial staff of Black Gate magazine in 2004, where he has served as Managing Editor ever since. He blogs regularly at the Black Gate website.

After reading "The Desert of Souls", I was glad to find this book of short stories detailing some of Dabir and Asim's further adventures. I think it helped knowing the characters from the novel but I felt the stories were excellent and well told. These characters are magnificent and engrossing. Always excited to read more.

I have read "the Desert of Souls" and really enjoyed it;there was plenty of action and humor. These stories are about the same two main characters, but since the stories were so short it was hard to develop a good plot. I would not recommend this book unless you really wanted to read more about the magician and his bodyguard(as I did!). There is a second novel coming out and I plan to read it.
