First 5 volumes of The War of Powers series - 6 7/8" H. Book One: The Sundered Realm - 222 pp, Ace 1985 printing, ISBN 7274200275 - "Fost Longstrider's mission seemed ordinary. He'd been hired to deliver a jug to a wizard on the far side of the forest. Unfortunately the jug contained a sex-starved genie, the wizard was dead by foul means, and Fost was probably the next to die. Then the genie was stolen and spirited away to the City in the Sky. It was up to Fost to steal it back from two beautiful sisters. They were fighting to become queen and, using dark powers, one had called forth a demon. Now Fost's foray was suddenly a terrible war." Book Two: The City in the Glacier - 224 pp, Ace 1985 printing, ISBN 7274200295 - "The Amulet of Living Flame - the most powerful talisman in existence. Its magic brought the dead back to life. They all wanted it, but only one of them could possess it. It could make Fost Longstrider an invincible warrior. It could make his lover Moriana triumphant over her evil twin sister. It could even make the hideous Prince Rann a most expert executioner. Unfortunately the amulet was encased in living ice within the City in the Glacier. And only a lecherous genie knew the path to take." Book Three: The Destiny Stone - 221 pp, Ace 1985 printing, ISBN 0441143083 - "Can a lecherous genie find happiness with his demure female counterpart? Can Fost Longstrider find love with the woman who caused his death? Not with the objects of their affections in another part of the realm, raising a mighty army for a terrible war. Princess Moriana wants to reclaim her birthright and free the land from her sister's harsh oppression. In her single-minded goal, she has killed the only man she ever loved and unwittingly stolen a very dangerous magic talisman. Unless Fost can reach her in time, Moriana will plunge the realm into total war. And if the raging battle disturbs the fearsome entity sleeping below, the war will become a holocaust." Book Four: The Fallen Ones - 222 pp, Ace 1986 printing, ISBN 0441226124 - "The vargaries of the Destiny Stone, a magical amulet, have caused Princess Moriana and her lover Fost to lose the war against her powerful evil sister. And now, just when they could use a fairy godmother, they've got a pair of squabbling genies instead. As a last resort, there are always the Fallen Ones. These repulsive, dangerous, reptilian aliens will help them, but there's a catch. The price is the retrieval of the awesome black diamond known as The Heart. All the Fallen Ones who have tried to steal it have died. Tsk, tsk. But perhaps the deadly rays of The Heart's guardian do not affect humans and genies. Who will be the first 'volunteer' to find out?" Book Five: In the Shadow of Omizantrim - 222 pp, Playboy 1982 first printing, ISBN 0872169995 - "The city of Medurim is a wonderful place. No real worries about war, bloodshed, torture, demons - just one long orgy. A great spot for lovestruck genies who finally get it on, but not quite suitable for Queen Moriana, who hopes to raise a new army here. Things are not going well for Moriana and her lover, Fost. They no longer control the Sky City; instead, the treacherous Fallen Ones are using it as a base from which they kill every human in sight. And the Demon of the Dark Ones, entombed for ten thousand years, is on the loose again, sucking up everything like a giant vacuum cleaner. Alas, it doesn't look as thought Moriana and Fost will be able to pull the plug - ."
