9781463754952: The Demon's Door Bolt: A Tale of End-Time Panic as a Prelude to the Total Absence of EVERYTHING

The year is AD 499. Hell's Gates are open, and Daemon prepares for Armageddon. World leaders believe the breached Door Bolt is but a rumor, and only Prester John and his Grail Warriors are left to fight the Prince of Darkness. But there's a slight problem. Prester John panics and resurrects five handicapped warriors. The sixth warrior is chained to the Rock of Prometheus, and the prophesized seventh warrior has yet to be found. The water-clock is running dry! Can the Grail Warriors and steppe barbarians "kill" ten million dead guys and save the World? Maybe... with a little help from Mungo the Obvious, the Machina ex Deus, plus Raphael Jabar and his twenty-seventh Thirteenth Yurt.

From the Author:

The title for The Demon's Door Bolt came to me fifteen years ago while I was reading the works of Pliny the Elder. He mentioned the "earth's door bolt," located to the north in a region of "soft white feathers," above a land inhabited by "one-eyed men" and "gold-guarding gryphons." Pliny set me in a search, a way to combine his written elements into an exciting and humerous novel.

Years later, as we all approached the so-called "end of days" of December 2012, I realized the "earth's door bolt
" could easily be the Gates of Hell. I had my antagonist, the Devil himself. But I wanted a unique set of heros and heroines, all flawed, and most of them from a historic or legendary past. If I had a powerful Magus, he could resurrect my protagonists just in time to save the World from the first  predicted Armageddon in the year AD 500. Then I found my man: Prester John.

The following novel became a "tale," as opposed to the standard "story," a romp through the most foreign environment in an average reader's world-- the ancient steppes of Asia, and the lofty Ural mountains. I held nothing back, my imagination running wild, as the "pensioners" from Hell streamed to the Earth's surface, led by Daemon, Julius Caesar, Attila the Hun, and Haman the Agagite. I'll let reader's discover who the good guys are.

The Demon's Door Bolt is my fourth published book. It's my favorite. Why? Because it's really a tale about us, the human species with all its foibles; and it tells us that good people, brave people, can defeat evil... no matter how powerful evil can be.
