Warning to readers: The Gateway and the other books in the Harbinger of Doom series explore religious and political topics that some may consider highly controversial. Proceed at your own risk. The author has written that, "The nature of good and evil is explored in ways that led to the Saga's banning for either religious or political reasons in much of Western Europe for centuries." The Gateway is a novella length version (approximately 25,000 words) of the first volume of the epic Harbinger of Doom series. The full length version of the first volume is entitled Gateway to Nifleheim (approximate length 66,000 words).Praise for The Gateway by Glenn G. Thater"Glenn Thater's, The Gateway, is a masterfully crafted epic fantasy about the ages old struggle between good and evil." ---- Carol Marrs Phipps, author of Elf Killers"...as good as any fantasy tale you will read, it honors the tradition, and adds to our lore a story so good, so well told, I hope it will be remembered forever."  ----- Rai Aren, co-author of Secret of the Sands."...a must read for all fans of classic sword and sorcery. A blend of howard, moorcock, wagner,with a twist of lovecraft. Well written and hugely entertaining." ---- Jimmyonly (an Amazon reviewer)In The Gateway, Glenn G. Thater transports us to an age of high adventure where knights battle supernatural horrors, magic is real but hidden, and the line between good and evil is all too thin.This introduction to the epic Harbinger of Doom series is certain to delight fantasy fans everywhere.The Harbinger of Doom saga centers around one Lord Angle Theta, an enigmatic warrior of unknown origins and mystical power. No mortal man is his match in battle. No sorcery can contain or confound him. No scholar or sage can outwit him. But for all his skills, he is but one of us; a man, a human, who shares our faults, our dreams, and our ambitions. He boldly strides across the land, fearless, peerless, and cloaked in mystery; all his will bent on righting such wrongs as he deems fit.Until the day the Gateway opened and turned the world on its head. On that fateful day, Korrgonn came and washed away our dreams. And his outre' realm of Nifleheim set its unholy mark upon our world and claimed it for their own. Only Theta and his companions see our end coming- the end of civilization, the end of the world of man. But no man, not even our greatest hero, can stand against the Lords of Nifleheim and the dark armies at their command. Fiends that infiltrate unseen within our ranks, that tear down our temples and our traditions; that devour us from within, unseen, unknown, unheralded, and unopposed until the hour grows far too late. One man pierces the veil of magic that blinds us all and marks the world as it truly is, revealing secrets, secrets of Angle Theta, so horrifying as to shatter a man's mind and call into question the very nature of good and evil.When mad sorcerers open a gateway to the very pits of hell, releasing outre demons of darkest nightmare upon the world, only the intrepid knights of House Eotrus stand in their way. Claradon Eotrus takes up the mantle of his noble house to avenge his father and hold back the tide of chaos that threatens to engulf the world and destroy mankind. Claradon recruits Angle Theta and Gabriel Garn, mysterious knights of mystical power to stand with him. Theta and Garn take up their swords one last time against the coming darkness -- a darkness from which only one will emerge.BOOKS BY GLENN G.

2.0 The Gateway: (Harbinger of Doom)
This Beowulf-inspired tale begins near the city of Dor Eotrus, which lays in a northern land that is more than a little Viking-esque. These northerners are fiercely independent, believing their more "civilized" neighbors are weak and pride themselves on their prowess in battle. So when a strange m...

2.0 The Gateway
Reading some of the descriptions in the book, my first thought was, "This sounds like Lovecraft fanfic." And then Azathoth and R'lyeh were mentioned.Lovecraft, Glenn Thater is not.The story is set in a semi-Norse world, which would have made the book slightly more interesting, except I kept getting ...

2.0 The Gateway (An Epic Fantasy Novella)
I normally like such books. But it did not go so well with this one; simply could not connect to the characters. Wrong time, wrong mood.
