Seven volumes of the "Spellsinger" series - 1-6, plus volume 8, 6 3/4" H. **Please note: volume 7 - "Son of Spellsinger" - is NOT included in this grouping.** 1. Spellsinger - 347 pp, 1983 4th printing, ISBN 0446903523. "The Wizard's World. It was where beasts walked and talked as men, armed with sword and dagger. And it was where Clothahump, turtle and wizard, stretched his powers of sorcery, seeking a source to the unknown evil that threatened his land, seeking a helper from another dimension, another universe. And so Jonathan Thomas Meriweather - grad student and rock guitarist - found himself plucked from his cannabis-filled campus room in L.A. and whisked into a world of disarming beauty and savage violence. Here Jon-Tom, Mudge the otter, the flame-haired Talea and others would form a motley fellowship with the wizard. Their mission: to travel where no warm-blooded being had been and destroy the strange new force emanating from the dreaded Greendowns." 2. The Hour of the Gate - 300 pp, 1984 5th printing, ISBN 0446341819. "The elders of Polastrindu watched in horror as Clothahump spun visions of the coming invasion. Finally the Plated Folk had a magic potent enough to penetrate Zaryt's Teeth and the warmlands, igniting a devastating war between the species. The wizard and his earthly helper, Jon-Tom, must undertake the voyage into enemy territory in search of allies against the evil hordes from beyond. (They) set sail on a suicide mission down the treacherous river that winds through the subterranean lair of Massawrath, Mother of Nightmares, across Helldrink through a tunnel of cold flame to the center of the earth." 3. The Day of Dissonance - 292 pp, 1984 4th printing, ISBN 0446343633. "Clothahump is dying. All that can save him are rare medicinal powders to be found across the Glittergeist Ocean, past distant Snarken. Jon-Tom sets out on the most perilous pilgrimage of his still-young career armed with only his music-making duar and a reluctant Mudge as his guide. Along the way he conjures up Roseroar, Amazonian tiger, rescues Jalwar, the ferret, and together they free Folly, the beauty, from bondage! (They) press on, confronting a forest of Fungoid Frankensteins on the Muddletop Moors, a parrot pirate on the high seas, cannibal fairies in the enchanted canyon, and the evil wizard of Malderpot who poses the greatest challenge of all!" 4. The Moment of the Magician - 312 pp, 1985 5th printing, ISBN 0446353485. "(Through) warring colonies of tough-talking prairie dogs, to the magical mime-vines, to a mammoth mountain of living muck and a hidden colony of dreaded Plated Folk, Jon-Tom and his comrade Mudge find their journey southward full of strong spells and deadly foes. Should they ever reach the city of Quasequa, their mission is to unmask the mysterious new magician, Marcus the Ineluctable. But Marcus' forces seem unlimited, his hunger for power insatiable, and his influence over his followers total. Is the spellsinging magic of Jon-Tom enough to save Quasequa - and all of the wizard's world?" The Paths of the Perambulator - 279 pp, 1986 1st printing, ISBN 0446326798. "Nobody wants to be around when a freak of supernature called a Perambulator enters the world, bringing with it some really weird shifts in the fabric of existence - like suddenly turning Jon-Tom into a giant blue crab, or Mudge into a nasty disease. But the mad Perambulator is there to stay, unless the wizard Clothahump can muster all his power and boot it into the next dimension. So, despite the bumblings of Sorbi the drunken owl and the fitful runes of a koala amateur wizard, Jon-Tom, Mudge, and Clothahump make their way ever deeper into the realms where Chaos perambulates - to find a deadly foe that only the combined forces of illogic can hope to defeat." 6. The Time of the Transference - 280 pp, 1987 2nd printing, ISBN 0446300098. "Jon-Tom was quite happy to settle into domestic bliss with the fiery Talea, study magic, and practice spellsinging on his duar. But the magic instrument is broken when he protects the wizard Clothahump from theives and he must set out across the Glittergeist Sea to find the one person who can fix it. With the irrepressible Mudge as a traveling companion, only the unexpected can happen. But cannibal muskrats, ogres, and a fierce pirate king parrot seem ordinary indeed when Joh-Tom finds a way back to Earth - and he must choose which world is home." 8. Chorus Skating - 344 pp, 1994 1st printing, ISBN 0446362379. "Jon-Tom is not in search of the Lost Chord; he's found it: living notes adrift from some extradimensional chorus line, fugitive from an otherworldly unfinished symphony. And the errant air wants him to follow it - right off a clef, into deadly peril. For a minor key adventure turns major as Jon-Tom, Mudge, and the schizo scherzo rescue a gaggle of spoiled princesses, battle the compulsions of a bizarre bazaar, wage war on a guerrilla gorilla, are sucked into a mocking maelstrom - and are trapped by an evil alien band who plan the ultimate musical rip-off, plunging the universe into the sounds of silence. Now, unless Jon-Tom's magic can conquer the airwaves, the hills will be alive with the sounds of an evil wizard who writes the songs that make the whole world - Scream!"
