One person found this helpful. Dumarest has traveled so long and so far that he does not know how to return to his home planet and no-one has ever heard of it, other than as a myth or legend The cult collection, which spanned 33 books written across more than 40 years, was translated into seven languages. Imagine my delight to realise I can easily read the whole series of about 33 books finally! Finding the right writer to write more novels is the biggest hurdle.

If you had your own site for him, you could post regular updates and information would be far easier to find.

At the time of the famous ot, a geological formation in the mountains causes the wind to produce sounds which register on the human brain as the voices of the dead. A magnificent start to a magnificent series.

The book series charts the adventures of protagonist Earl Dumarest, who spends his life searching for clues to the location of dumarsst home world, Earth. I am very sorry to hear about your surgery. Wishing anyone knew where it was that is. It was a carmine dawn that formed a backdrop to long striated clouds when Conos rolled out of bed and dressed quickly, his breath pluming away. Dumarest gets himself unwillingly involved in the politics between the Matriarch and a sadistic spoiled prince of another planetary dynasty, just as everyone is joining the journey to the mountains to experience the dumares of the storm.


And Benford does well. I hope you mend quickly and derive every possible benefit from it.
