This type of fantasy adventure reminds me why I fell in love with the genre in the first place. So well done that I find myself catching new nuances in the 2nd and 3rd time (as I share this with my kids)! I'm so happy Dreamtowermedia is producing a listening experience to accompany the book...not just something read. I can't wait for more of this type of fantasy to enjoy and share with my family! Keep it coming, Robert Zoltan!!
A fun and colorful classic!
The sickeningly talented Robert Zoltan has created a special audiobook extravaganza with his great fantasy sword & sorcery piece, The Blue Lamp. Not only can he write, but he can draw, and compose, and produce. Here is the full-monty extravaganza.
I first read the story in Heroic Fantasy Quarterly (here's a link to his original publication, it's free), which is a market I hope someday to crack. Well, Robert set the bar high in this fun tale. I would describe it as Fritz Leiber meets Robert E. Howard. If you are into S&S, you will know what that means and that it is a very good thing.
It's a rousing tale, fun and colorful, with magic, exotic setting, thrills, and good buddy chemistry between the two leads. I get a strong sense that I'm reading a classic story while immersed in this one. I think it's because it really brings me back to the characteristics that made the best S&S stories fun, and eschews the grimdark ethic that is more common today.
Robert Zoltan talks Tolkien
Loved this effort from Robert Zoltan concerning the legendary author! I found the overall format of the podcast lighthearted but still very informative and interesting. I commend Dream Tower Media for making the "AW&LS" available for public consumption! Looking forward to the show making a long and successful run...
