    Ralph Adams Cram was a master builder with a secret talent for occult horror writing. This wonderful short-story shows a side to this famous architect that proves his own dabblings as a writer are just as noteworthy as the Federal Building in Boston, one of Cram's most famous building designs. Besides deco architecture Cram is best known for the Gothic revival movement, and is the architect behind dozens of beautiful cathedrals and buildings throughout New England. A true gothic at heart, his story of No. 252 Rue M. le Prince in Paris--where dark magic lurks and horrors await any who dare enter--shows just how dark this draftsman could be.

    The greatest tales begin when the adventure ends 
    In 2002 ADR, the Argensian Empire still reels from the usurpation of its centuries-old throne by a landless adventurer. As the elven nobility smolders to see a Dwarven warrior and his sorcerous allies on their throne, another band of upstarts, called the Tributarians, returns from the impassable desert bearing riches and winning momentary fame. 
    But as the wizard Zoahnstar, preacher Cheriatte, new knight Qerlak, dream-seer Galethiel and the rest go their separate ways, the Tributarians discover that wealth beyond their dreams can bring on the nightmare. Fortune, fame, and the fate of all who live are at risk from a threat to the waking world that lurks beyond the veil of sleep: a threat awakened, and resisted, by one of their own whom they thought dead. 
    Can the scattered group discover the clues they need to survive? Ambushed and bewildered by political and magical powers beyond their understanding, can they rally to defuse a conspiracy of robbers, defeat a primordial threat from the deepest swamps, and cross boundaries between the worlds to confront Nightmare himself? How far beyond the adventurer lies the hero? To find out, each must enter... The Plane of Dreams. 
    This book is the sequel to “The Test of Fire” and part of a trilogy of loosely connected stand-alone novels set in the Lands of Hope.

    A family moves to a small town dominated by a murderous cult Despite its eerie name, Bethany’s Sin is a pleasant place. After a life of grim poverty, this new community seems like heaven to Evan Reid and his family. With its quaint shops, manicured lawns, and fresh summer smell, the town charms the Vietnam veteran, his wife, and their daughter like nowhere else they have ever been. But beneath that cheerful façade lurks something deadly. As soon as they enter their new house, Evan is consumed by fear. He can’t place its source, but there is something about the town’s mayor, Kathryn Drago, which makes him uneasy. By day she is a harmless retired archaeologist. But at night she leads an Amazonian cult whose next ritual calls for a secret ingredient: the blood of Evan Reid.
