Teltö Phuul, Necromancer and Library Clerk, likes his days safe and predictable.  Not for him the intrigues of the Viiminian Empire, a gothic monstrosity held together by sheer force of will.

Until the Empire’s dreaded secret police come knocking. Caught in a web of schemes in the diseased heart of Kuolinako, the underground Imperial capital, Teltö can trust no-one. Not the Northern theocrats who abhor Necromancy, and certainly not the Grand Chancellor, whose iron-fisted rule has kept the old order alive that little bit longer.

When one false step means torture and disappearance, this journey will change our Necromancer forever.

Apart from reading, writing, and teaching himself foreign languages, he’s a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, with a taste for reconstructing medieval skaldic verse. His only true weakness is chocolate. And cats. But not chocolate cats, because the fur would get all sticky.

Dan lives in Dunedin, New Zealand. He is currently working on a sequel to his novel Wise Phuul.

Some of our reviews:

“Wise Phuul is funny, inventive, irreverent. Stride has created a fantastical world which is wholly believable with a reluctant hero who is nothing if not marvellous. A rollicking adventure and a great read.” – Tina Shaw, Writer & Editor

“I can thoroughly endorse this book. A totally fresh setting.” – Craig Hallam, Author
