Warnock Press is pleased to bring you a unique series of stories, written by Glenwood "Carol" O'Dell and Jeremy "Cole" O'Dell based on the era of the Northwestern frontiersmen, exploring the myths of Native American folklore with the premise these legends were founded in visits from extraterrestrials. Amid a world of violence and people that lived by the hunt, the true test of survival becomes a life and death struggle against an evil, shrouded in prophecy.
A ship of The Guardian Empire is hauling a dangerous parasite that terrorists have been using to spread fear across the galaxy. The ruling power needs an antidote, but a pirate clan’s raid and ensuing skirmish unleashes this plague upon mankind. If left unfettered the swarm will consume all life on earth.
Seen as a “War God” by Crow prophets and “The Destroyer,” by The Seer (a Cheyenne visionary) - the alien Broken-Toe emerges from the rubble of battle: determined to defend the honor of his clan, and save this foreign world - he‘s abandoned to - from the death set free because of his own personal vendetta. Led by this off-world stranger, prophetic warnings join: trappers, Indians, scouts, soldiers, and a mountain lion in a life and death struggle for existence.
Tawque, survivor of the great “Battle of the Flaming Eagle” and appointed Guardian of its sacred burial site, enters a mesmerizing light show and doorway into the distant past. Trapped in a mystic land with new companions: the young female warrior, beautiful Haiwi; and a white trader and acquaintance, Bobby, thought long dead,— Tawque is lost in a world of giant creatures and formidable demigods.
Tawque emerges during the deadly rights of a human sacrifice,- helping Haiwi escape certain death, together they discover a world of their own making. But the dream is short lived when Haiwi is returned to her homeland, The Golden City. At first Tawque is accepted as a hero; but if the truth of his love for Haiwi is revealed, death will be swift. The King and custom demand Haiwi marry royalty and after the primary suitor is killed, Tawque is sent into exile. The King is assassinated and Haiwi and Bobby must flee for their lives winding up in the Dark Forest peopled by Nephraceetan,- children of the gods with a taste for human flesh.
As an outcast, Tawque must overcome the perils of time and tradition, lost in an unfathomable world of mystery and intrigue, only to find his love trapped and at the mercy of fate.
Three-Spots’ pirate clan has been wiped out by Broken-Toe and his marshals. Stranded and alone on a foreign planet, this traitor of the Guardian Empire moves south to the Louisiana swamps. There in the warmth of a dangerous bayou,— his technology damaged and worthless,— the alien begins to practice the fundamentals of his psychotic origins.
A plague upon the marshlands: legends grow amid the increasing violence of a fanatical war,— bigotry, moonshine, and the mysticism of a people steeped in superstition. Hidden among this hatred a daughter of questionable heritage dies bearing a son. Taboo even among his people, his birthright concealed, young Titus is raised by an elderly woman (rumored to be a voodoo priestess) and an old black swamp skinner (that is in reality the boy’s grandfather). On the run from a blood thirsty mob, Titus turns to the bog. Power and freedom come to those with money, and this dream sends the young man deeper into the bayou on a self induced quest for wealth chasing the fabled lost treasure of a Spanish galleon. In the haunting trappings of the marshlands, Titus finds the truth about his life and inner demons in a confrontation with the devil of the swamp,— Three-Spot‘s.
