ROGUES OF MERTH:

THE ADVENTURES OF DAREON AND BLUE, BOOK 1

One night in Merth, that most westerly city tottering on the edge of the Succulent Sea, a desperate young poet swordsman and an ingenous young tribal warrior meet by chance or fate or luck. Their unlikely friendship sets them on a course of adventures across the wild mysterious continent of Plemora, where they face monsters, magicians, maledictions, and things nameless and far stranger.

Swashbuckling swordplay, metaphysical mystery, comforting camaradrie, erotic innuendo, monstrous menace, and a fine measure of mirth. A novel length collection of Heroic Fantasy Sword and Sorcery Adventures in the tradition of the Golden Age (Leiber, Vance, Moorcock, Howard, and Moore).

Michael W. Cho, writing for Black Gate Magazine , said: “Robert Zoltan, author, composer, and illustrator, has taken the time to craft a deep and immersive program. His latest offering, “The Strand,” is short, compressed tale, which may have gone without a single commercial break back in the old days. Nonetheless, it contains all the ingredients of compelling drama — passionate characters, a setting bursting with possibilities, high stakes, and a very clever literary device which underpins it all.” Read the whole article here.

Meanwhile, Blue fights for his life and perhaps his very soul, with the aid of Malika, a dancer from Khulan, against an otherworldly foe that seems omnipotent.

When is danger the safest path? How can you become victorious in a fight you cannot win?

Join Dareon and Blue and find out, in The Blue Lamp!

The Blue Lamp Audio Drama received a rave review from Black Gate magazine! You can read it here.

The dramatization is produced by Dream Tower Media, with music by composer and songwriter Robert Zoltan, promotional illustrations by Zoltan, and the voice talent of Robert Zoltan and Danita Bayer. The Blue Lamp was first published in Heroic Fantasy Quarterly.  Here is some of the glowing praise for the story from editors and magazine reviewers:

Adrian Simmons of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly:
“Adventure fiction in the classic style, Zoltan’s tale will take you from the mundane and into a world of magic and mystery not seen since the glory days of the pulps.”

Fletcher Vredenburgh of Black Gate Magazine:
A (SPOILER), a (SPOILER), and an eerie blue lamp figure in Robert Zoltan’s very fun and self-illustrated, “The Blue Lamp.” For any fan of Sword & Sorcery, those three things should be enough to make you read the story. We know what we like and when we seen it we flock to it like, well, moths.”

Nicky Magas of Tangent Online:
“…the prose, the dialogue, and characters do their part smoothly and come together to give the lesson that two swords are always better than one.”
