When Blue goes missing in the city of Merth for two days, Dareon’s search for his friend leads him to Ravel’s Exquisite Emporium, where he becomes prey to an unusual predatory salesman.

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.”

Recommended Books from Other Publishers

Flame and Crimson: A History of Sword-and-Sorcery

Flame and Crimson: A History of Sword-and-Sorcery provides much-needed definitions and critical rigor to this misunderstood fantasy subgenre. It traces its origins in the likes of historical fiction, to its birth in the pages of Weird Tales, to its flowering in the Frank Frazetta-illustrated Lancer Conan Saga series in the 1960s. It covers its “barbarian bust” beneath a heap of second-rate pastiche, a pack of colorful and wildly entertaining and awful sword-and-sorcery films, and popular culture second life in the likes of Dungeons & Dragons and the bombast of heavy metal music.
