The Thoheeks is dead!

Long live the new Thoheeks! But who will this new leader of Sanderz-Vawn be? For although young Horsclansman Tim Sanderz, exiled long years ago, has come to reclaim his rightful inheritance, his stepmother wants to see her own Ehleen son as ruler in Vawn. And before Tim’s half-brother Bili of Morguhn and the Undying High Lord Milo can send troops to his aid, Tim’s Hall has become an armed camp where Ehleen battles Horseclansman with cunning, treachery, and sword-swinging might. And there is far more at stake than just the leadership of Sanderz-Vawn. For the Confederation’s deadliest enemy is once again at work, using its imhuman science to plant the seeds of Lord Milo’s destruction at Sanderz Hall . . .

A book by Robert Adams

Robert Adams (08.31.33-04.01.1990) (full name - Franklin Robert Adams / Franklin Robert Adams) is an American writer, author of works in the genre of science fiction and fantasy. Published as Robert Adams. The popularity of the author was brought by a series of books that made up the Horseclans saga. Adams was a professional mercenary soldier, and as a former military man, he was sympathetic to everything related to the army, weapons and military history. After retirement, he moved with his wife to Seminole County, Florida (a place familiar to us from the book "Osceola, Leader of the Seminole") and there, on the richly fertilized history and blood of Indians, conquistadors, ordinary Americans and even pirates, soil, in 1975 he writes "The Invasion of the Horse Clans" ("The Coming of the Horseclans"). The next book, "Swords of the Horseclans", published in 1976, is the only one in the series to be translated into Russian. The author, when not writing, as much as possible, tries to expand his circle of interests. He studies the history of military clothing, reconstructs the armor of the conquistadors, forging their details with his own hands, forges swords. In order to convey the feelings of his heroes as accurately as possible, he is engaged in fencing and diving, hunting and horseback riding. By the age of 50, he has built a reputation as a ragged barbarian-joker, writes 16 more books about the Clans, publishes several anthologies and new mythical cycles, such as "Stairway to Forever", and a timepunk - "Lost in Time "(" Castaways in Time "). At 56, he dies of cancer. In a recent interview, Dean Andersson mentioned Robert Adams as one of the most influential writers on his writing career. According to him, "...

If the writers of Walhall have it, I bet that Bob Adams is now sitting at the head of the table, in a rolling voice and with a sly twinkle in his eyes, poisoning stories! ..." Adams was a pioneer of the post-apocalyptic genre. His Horse Clans were the forerunners of today`s creations in this genre. Its worlds, political environment, people were carefully created. The storylines have always been clearly, logically and in detail worked out, and so intertwined with each other that they became understandable only after sequential reading. He did not write separate, "independent" books. Fierce, ongoing hostilities became Adams` signature style. Not skimping on details, the author created convincing action-packed and, at times, rather bloody adventures. The most popular books in the Horse Clans saga feature fast-paced events, non-stop battles, and well-planned and well-thought-out strategy. Another interesting feature of Robert Adams` books is the covers. Fantasy, as a genre in fiction, owed a lot of its popularity to graphic designers. And the popularity of artists, in turn, has made fantasy one of the most widespread and beloved genres of art. Almost all of the books by Robert Adams published in America by the publishing house Signet were exclusively designed by the then beginning and fashionable artist Ken Kelly. Ken and Robert worked so well that Robert Adams began writing the scenes he imagined on the cover into the books, then called the artist and told the artist which page to read, accompanied by the words: "Your next cover, Ken" (from an interview with Ken Kelly). Not wanting to be outdone by Signet, the British publishing house Futura signed a contract to decorate the Equestrian Clans with a young European, Luis Royo. Today, the legend of the Horse Clans and their author is still alive, although the books have ceased to be published. Now the Horse Clans are played, - Steve Jackson brought them into his `GURPS` role-playing system. © GrandDuchess Bibliography Taken from the site http://fantlab.ru
