YSSTRHM: A WORK OF FANTASY

My advisor and friend Doug Browning has published 4 of six fantasy
books on which he's been working.

I wanted to share this in case you're interested:

YSSTRHM: A WORK OF FANTASY

As of April 2007 I have completed four of the six books that go to
make up a continuous narrative of the fantasy series I've entitled
Ysstrhm.

Given that these are works of high fantasy, the world which they
presuppose is not ours. It allows a modicum of magic, distinctive
customs and classifications, and flora and fauna that resemble ours
only in respect to the presence of humans, cats, pups, and bees.
There are, for example, no horses or other animals that may be ridden
into battle. But there are battles and a good deal of suspense,
mystery, quests, losses, and here and there fairly explicit sex.
There is a historical background that is assumed, as well as details
of terrain with a number of maps.

I have no interest in publishing any of these books, at least not in
the foreseeable future, and I have no interest in making money on
them. I have decided to make them available for my friends and any
other interested person on this website.
