What is Tandra

Tandra is the story of David Galon of Earth, a take no prisoners hero who rescues Kenia, an exotic beauty, from street gang thugs who have trapped her in the back alleys of a large American city. Galon falls instantly for the mysterious woman. She returns his love, but she has secrets she refuses to reveal. The mystery only makes her more fascinating until the day a strangely dressed mediaeval warrior comes to report her father is dying and requires her presence. It is then Galon discovers the lady to whom he has given his heart is a princess from another world, a world that can be reached by simply walking through a specialized Star Door, something of a passage between worlds and a tunnel through deep space.

In defiance of her demands that he not follow her, Galon smashes through the Star Door and into the universe of Tandra. Seeing his princess board a distant sky craft, Galon races to catch her, but is unable to reach her side before the weird sail craft takes her high into the Tandra skies beyond his reach. Thus begins Galon's perilous quest for his princess, a journey that takes him over a strange and hazardous world, bringing him face-to-face with incredible and savage creatures, beautiful and dangerous women, formidable enemies, and questionable allies!

More about Tandra

A Science Fiction Story Like no Other

Tandra™ is a rich and complex world, the remains of a once great civilization now fallen back into a savage age where small city-states and their amoral rulers struggle for power and survival, a world where sudden death lurks in every shadow borne on the blade of treacherous assassins or on the lips of seductive women. Tandra is a world regressed to the extremes of dark superstition where the terror most feared is the threat of the dread race of Wizards who, it is said, constructed the high technology Wizard Ring, a silver band that arches high over the blue-green skies above.

This is the world David Galon of Earth must face to reclaim for his own the wondrous and exotic Princess of the Dragon Throne. Ever remaining is the essential question; should the Earthian succeed in finding the woman of his dreams, will she still care for him or will she have abandoned his love? Is her interest in David Galon nothing more than of a brief encounter to be casually cast aside once the moment has passed? If such is indeed the case, Princess Kenia, heir to the Dragon Throne, may well discover the Earthian Galon is no witless player in other worldly power games, to be cast aside when no longer required!

The psychotic and fanatical self styled political and religious monsters who have no hesitation of any crime or vicious act in the quest for power over men are a reflection of the repulsive degraded would be tyrants of our own time.
