From the Inside Flap

BEYOND THE SEA OF DREAMS
Life had never been kind to Joe and Marge. Now, according to Throckmorton P. Ruddygore--a stranger who met them on a road that wasn't there--they were due to die in nineteen minutes. But across the Sea of Dreams lay a new and perhaps better life, in a place where fairies danced by moonlight. Joe could become a mighty-thewed barbarian warrior. Marge could be beautiful and find her magical self.
It was just as Ruddygore had promised, plus a great deal more. For this was a world where Hell still strove to win its ancient war, where demon princes sent men into battles of dark magic, and where Joe and Marge must somehow help prevent the coming of Armageddon!

The is my second favorite series by Jack L. Chalker. My first favorite series is the "Well of Souls." Whether you are a Jack L. Chalker reader or not, you will enjoy these series. His character development and vivid descriptions are a great read.

You will be hard pressed to find a more original tale of fantasy.

That was back in 1984, the genre was already one big cliché.

It is amazing that this remarkable series still stands out as an original piece of work. The author keeps all the elements of fantasy but uses them in such a new way that you will have a hard time putting this book down! The more you read, the more original it gets!

This is the correct order of the books:

' The River of Dancing Gods, Del Rey, 1984 (ISBN 0-345-30892-1)
' Demons of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, 1984 (ISBN 0-345-30893-X)
' Vengeance of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, July, 1985 (ISBN 0-345-31549-9)
' Songs of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, August, 1990 (ISBN 0-345-34799-4)
' Horrors of the Dancing Gods, 1994 (ISBN 0-345-37692-7)

You will not regret picking this up, especially if you are about to drop the genre because you just can't stand reading the same stories over and over.

Have you ever wanted to just BE in another world or universe? All the wonderful fantasy books have to come from somewhere. What if they actually happened somewhere. That is what this book is about. This is the first book in a wonderful series. Maybe we can just get away from it all even if it is by reading this book. This is an easy feel good book. It is a little predictable in the main plot twists but it is the little things that keep you on your toes. This book is easily read in one or two sittings on a weekend. When you need an outlet to a new land pick this up and continue with the rest of the series.

Jack L. Chalker is best known for his "Lost Souls," series but "River of the Dancing Gods," is one of my favorite fantasy novels. Imagine on your worst day finding a new world full of adventure. That's how the story begins for Joe and Marge.
