A Spellsinger novel.

The original published form of the first two Spellsinger novels - Spellsinger and The Hour of the Gate.

This volume was split in half for paperback publication with Foster creating an ending for the first half (Spellsinger) and a beginning for the second (The Hour of the Gate).

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Discontent ruled the stars, and there were portents in the heavens.

On the fourth day of Eluria, which follows the Feast of Consanguinity, a great comet was seen in the night sky. It crossed east to west over the Tree and lasted for half a fortnight. It left a black scar on the flesh of existence, a scar that glowed and lingered.

Faces formed within the timescar. Only a very few were capable of discerning their existence. None understood their implication. The faces danced and leered and mocked their ignorant observers. Frustrated or simply terrified, the few who could see turned away or deliberately placed a calming interpretation on what had troubled their minds.

Thus begins Alan Dean Foster’s epoch fantasy of beauty and violence in a strange and magical world. Jon Thomas Meriweather, graduate student and guitarist, is transported to this world where he becomes a soldier who battles with sword and song.
