Description

Vellum Publishing, Inc. proudly announces the publication of a new epic adult fantasy of a young intrepid hero whose journey echoes the travels of Ulysses. Soldiers have descended on his village and their occupation brings with it destruction and the ruthless killing of his family and friends. Go with him as he traverses strange new lands while pursuing his quest to find the one great being who can save his home: The Sage of the Oak. Be with him as he grows in knowledge and learns death-defying skills in his encounters with fairies, dragons and strange terrifying creatures that have never been seen before in fantasy literature. Scale the mountainous trembling flanks of the great dragon with him to extract the tooth which he must possess for protection in his journeys. Meet Lyden, Queen of the Fairies, who struggles to repress surging sexual urges that demand satisfaction with this lesser human creature as she guides him through the land of the Elves, beings who have decided that mankind must be eliminated before their human evolution of violence destroys the Earth. Meet Roland, the great warrior, whose graphically violent battles will chill your bones. Although repulsed, you will find yourself unable to stop reading despite the rivers of blood flowing from the dead. Meet Gelidii, the Picarin, the horrifying spider-like creature who bestows upon the narrator The Blade of the Drinking Bird, a living slasher of death that he must practice using until it actually breathes with a life that becomes a part of him so that its blazing arcs of protection help to keep him alive. And feel the wonder experienced by the narrator when the tender and all-knowing healer, Karuna, guides him to the wondrous Chamber that holds the Secret of Life Itself and gives him the most precious of heavenly jewels to protect him as he continues his quest to reach The Sage of the Oak. For the avid fans of The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, there is now a new epic saga to thrill the imagination: THE SAGE OF THE OAK.

Author Biography

J. A. Scheffer committed to studying Humanities at age 19 and he spent the next 15 years mixing college work with traveling to Europe and then living 9 months in Kenya and 2 years in South Korea as both a teacher and student. Eventually, he earned his MA in English from Stony Brook University, where he now teaches writing and rhetoric. Since he has been a lifelong student of classical and medieval literature, Scheffer's intention for The Sage of the Oak was to integrate Eastern concepts and archetypes of Western fantasy without appealing mainly to children, something he felt was the case with the genre since Tolkien. His respect for the pure poetry of Virgil's Aeneid inspired his work on The Sage of the Oak and also convinced him that great works of literature can be perennial sellers.
