Archanea, the Iron Walled City. Run by a despot King, controlled by a dark wizard. Braydon is complicated. He thought he was only a low-born youth with 18-inch biceps and a bit too much temper, but it turns out he is much more than that. His sister and her foolish dreams of marrying a bleman leads them inextricably into epic adventure. Imagine a continent on a world very much like our own, with water and a blue sky, deserts, forests and oceans, but where magic is real and creatures from legends exist. A world five hundred years younger than Earth, where men in steel armor still wage war with swords and shields and Wizards stand behind the thrones. Imagine furthermore that there is an ancient book where everything that has or will happen on this world is recorded: the Archanean Diary.
Anton Brzezinski is a free thinking Polish American born in California in 1946. Shamelessly self promoting in the style of Salvador Dali, he has known everyone from Fritz Lang to William Burroughs. He's had misadventures in India, sold art in Europe and made a name for himself as far away as China. He began to write as a preteen, when he submitted stories to Astounding Science Fiction. He was fortunate enough to have been tutored by Robert Bloch, author of Hitchcock's Psycho. Well known for his surrealist and science fiction paintings, in the last few years he has written and published several novels including False Memories, Adventures of the Living Dali (under the pseudonym Gabrielle Mallarme) Virtual Pleasures, Anton's Inferno and Picasso's Secret. Now he's putting his bizarre plots, solid research and ironic humor into a an epic fantasy.
