EARLY REVIEWS from Amazon Readers

E. Murray: "This tale of a grab for a kingdom could oddly mirror the state of our 21st Century castles. Still, it helps to have some well-placed wizardry, a neophyte dragon and other curious magic on hand . . ."

J. Beamon: "A high fantasy story filled with intrigue and unpredictable magic, it tells the tale of Hugin, a scheming hustler and aspiring innkeeper and his best friend Gier . . ."

J. Goldstrom: "In Basilisk the details are so clear I was right there with the action, whether it involved humans or that notorious basilisk. I'd call this an all-ages story . . ."

A freelancer in book production for forty years, Chet Gottfried lives with his wife Sue, and their three ex-feral cats, in State College, Pennsylvania. He is an active member of SFWA, with stories in Jim Baen's Universe, Aboriginal SF, and Isaac Asimov's SF, as well as stories in small press and online publications.
