Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Glenn G. Thater's Writing:

"Glenn Thater's, The Gateway, is a masterfully crafted epic fantasy about the ages old struggle between good and evil." ---- Carol Marrs Phipps, author of Elf Killers
"...as good as any fantasy tale you will read, it honors the tradition, and adds to our lore a story so good, so well told, I hope it will be remembered forever."  ----- Rai Aren, co-author of Secret of the Sands.

...The author paints each scene and battle so clearly that I felt I was in the middle of the action."  ----- Mike Monahan, author of Barracuda.

"...a must read for all fans of classic sword and sorcery. A blend of howard, moorcock, wagner,with a twist of lovecraft. Well written and hugely entertaining." ---- Jimmyonly (an Amazon reviewer)

From the Author

Floating at the surface of the Harbinger of Doom Saga stories are action, heroism, villainy, fantastical creatures, magic, and intrigue, obvious and entertaining to all those that skim its pages. But for those who delve deeper, these tales present truths both shocking and eternal. The nature of good and evil is explored in ways that led to the Saga's banning for either religious or political reasons in much of Western Europe for centuries. Ironically, a more careful reading of a wider swath of "Thetian" canon affirms the time-honored truths and values taught by the Church and upheld by the best of nations.
The Harbinger of Doom Saga presents a vast, complex world populated by a myriad of memorable characters, and beset with magic, monsters, mystery, myth, and mayhem. It is epic fantasy on its grandest scale. Dropping a reader somewhere amidst that maelstrom is a daunting prospect for author and reader alike. To ease the entrance, I begin the telling with the novella, The Gateway, which is decidedly not epic in scope but introduces some of the most beloved characters of the Saga, showcases Theta at his finest, and features the realistic, gritty action the Saga is known for, while also hinting at the wonders and mystery that define the ancient world of Midgaard. Fantasy readers may find it reminiscent in scope and feel to some of Robert E. Howard's stories of Conan, Kull, or Solomon Kane. 

If you prefer to take a slightly more ambitious plunge into the Saga, I recommend that you begin with Gateway to Nifleheim, the full-length novel version (approximately 66,000 words, available in kindle and paperback) of the shorter work, The Gateway(approximately 25,000 words, also available in kindle and paperback). Subsequent volumes of the Saga expose the reader to the vast landscape of Midgaard as the Saga's reach spirals outward and becomes truly epic in scale and complexity.
As you take your first dip into the waters of Midgaard and experience the vivid descriptions of the landscape and the heart-thumping action, you may, as I do, feel the urge to pick up a sword and dive into the fray. Although we can't fight at Theta's side, take solace that we can revel in his exploits and follow him again and again as he strides across Midgaard in the days of high adventure.
