HONOR AND EMPIRE: THE MINOTAUR TALES
Happy to announce that HONOR AND EMPIRE: THE MINOTAUR TALES is now available in trade paperback and ebook! Limited and Ultra Limited Edition hardcovers forthcoming (only through me)!
Honor and loyalty. Two of the greatest traits driving the minotaur race. Whether written for Dragonlance or his own Rex Draconis saga, Richard A. Knaak has done more than most to hone the the minotaurs into the dynamic, if somewhat overly-stubborn characters beloved by so many.. Now, the author pens new tales in the ongoing struggle against the minotaurs’ possibly greatest threat to their empire and society as a whole — themselves.
Five novellas of action, adventure, treachery, and more….all in the quest to achieve an ideal that may be forever just out of their reach.
“Honor Bound” — Two brothers face choices that may force them to a fatal confrontation with one another.
“The Good Hound” — A minotaur must trust his life to the oath of a prisoner from one of the most disreputable races.
“The Lost Warrior” — A minotaur wanders in search of both his memory and his home, the latter of which might not even be found in the world he now treads.
“The Horned Knight” — The outcast and disfigured minotaur Cayd has chosen the path taught him by a human knight, but his past seeks to reclaim him.
“Honor and Empire” — The new commander of a minotaur outpost in a neutral human city discovers that necromantic murders may be covering up a plot extending all the way back to the empire he serves.

LEGENDS OF THE DRAGONREALM: DRAGON OF THE DEPTHS NOW OUT IN EBOOK & TRADE!
The storyline that began in KNIGHTS OF THE FROST and continued in SWORD OF GHOSTS at last reaches its conclusion!
As civil war consumes the Aramite invaders, Cabe Bedlam, his family, and allies find themselves spread not just throughout the Dragonrealm, but on the war-torn continent once under the supreme power of the wolf raiders. With the Nameless now having achieved its sinister goal, Cabe must trust in his treacherous father, Azran, risen from the dead and with plots of his own at work.
Worse, as that unfolds, the Gryphon — his wife, children, and kingdom lost to him — is dragged on a monstrous quest to locate the one creature powerful enough to bring order and peace to the chaos sweeping over both continents. However, unaware that the warlock Shade has discovered that the threat stretches into other worlds as well, the Gryphon does not realize that the one he seeks could actually be the final death knell for not just the Dragonrealm…but everything.
Releasing initially in ebook for the Kindle, Nook, Kobo, & for iTunes and trade paperback available through Amazon & BN, then the limited edition & ultra limited edition hardcovers (hardcovers available only through the author and are signed. Ultra edition has additional stories & smaller run).
To order the ebook:
THE RAVAGED EMPIRE IS COMING!
What name it might have borne before the Sons of the Wolf arose, no one can anymore say. The packs spread swiftly and, as they did, lands were torn asunder, peoples were eradicated, and so much knowledge was lost. The Sons of the Wolf remade all around them in the dark, fearsome image of their god, the Ravager, and gave, to all places of significance, titles significant to that monstrous deity.
For the continent itself, the Sons of the Wolf — also known as the Aramites or wolf raiders — chose the ominous name of Thornheln, said somehow to mark where first the Ravager had arisen to godhood. Yet, although the empire of the Aramites has since crumbled and war between those once enslaved and the Sons of the Wolf continues, Thornheln still remains the name by which all call the blood-soaked land. Some say that is appropriate, for they see the continuous carnage as the Ravager’s legacy. Worse, with the empire torn asunder, other horrors — either once buried by the wolf raiders but now returned or newly-born due to the terrible evils unleashed by sorcery — have spread across the continent, ensuring that darkness may yet forever engulf all.
This is the continent of the east, far across the waters from the Dragonrealm. Thornheln. Once the empire of the Aramites. Here, there be no dragons…save one gone astray.
Here, there be much worse.
Welcome to the Ravaged Empire.
The new saga in the world of the Dragonrealm.

WAR OF THE DRAGON MOON
Despite attempts by the wizard Amble and others to prevent bloody conflict, the minotaur empire and the allied kingdoms collide, with neither side truly aware that they are puppets in a struggle between gods and other forces seeking the Spider Ash. An artifact said to be the only thing capable of slaying the King of Dragons — a legendary creature so powerful that even the gods must kneel to him — the Spider Ash may also be the one weapon that can prevent the world of Tiberos from falling into horrific ruin.
But with the necromancer Anam Feirge and the wheyr leader Scaril on the verge of summoning Gnarfang, god of Chaos, to the world and the minotaur ruler under the sway of the dark goddess, Parani, Amble and his comrades must turn to the most unlikely of allies if they are to stave off the annihilation of countless lives…Kemontillus, the savage dragon of the east.
WAR OF THE DRAGON MOON Pi. I
THE GOOD HOUND – MINOTAUR TALES #2
Now out in both trade paperback and ebook! Pulp adventurers, an alternate Chicago, and twists and turns!
A Chicago not unlike our own, yet not quite, in a time midway between two world wars. Here, there are the costumed adventurers and villains seeking gain, power, and fear. They might very well overwhelm the police and other forces for justice — including briefly-known heroes such as the Dial — but ever standing in their way is one man who they cannot defeat. The Legionary has protected the city for over ten years and in that time many a criminal has fallen or been incarcerated. Some have returned again and again, but always to be foiled.
Until now. Until the Legionary’s vanishing. More than a month has passed since his last sighting, since his last foe defeated. At first, a lull hovered over Chicago. Certain that it was a trick, villains held back as they awaited the Legionary’s miraculous return at any moment. After all, he had vanished once before for more than two weeks.
But finally, the first daring rogues committed their audacious crimes — and still the city’s hero did not this time return to stop them. And so, anarchy arose. Unfettered from their fear of defeat and capture, villains swarmed over the city, looting, murdering, and destroying. The police sought to stem the tide, but they were washed away by it instead.
And then, the unthinkable happened…

Already released in ebook, with trade paperback, limited edition hardcover, and audio coming! Discover the latest in the Dragonrealm saga, with this follow-up to KNIGHTS OF THE FROST (which also has audio imminent!)
The City of Knowledge lies conquered, its longtime ruler, the Gryphon, now in exile as the Aramites continue their quest to finally extend their mastery to the Dragonrealm. With Shade and Valea lost in the world of Nimth — birthplace of the dread Vraad sorcerers — Cabe and Gwen Bedlam must turn to others not only to stop the wolf raiders’ advances, but combat a vengeful undead dragon seeking Cabe. All this, as the countless spirits once enslaved by the Lords of the Dead now spread unchecked across the lands, some with sinister intentions of their own.
But as the Aramite Orril D’Marr pursues his own twisted vendetta against the Gryphon and Shade must confront horrible secrets from his past that still reach out from Nimth, Cabe finds himself in the worst of nightmares as he seeks a monstrous weapon that may be the heart of all the threats. To not only find it but also survive its dark power, the mage must join forces with his greatest fear, his greatest hatred, in the form of a ghostly sorcerer whose bloody legacy has hung over Cabe for all his life.
His father, the infamous Azran Bedlam.
