Back in the late 1970s Adrian Cole created a fantasy character every bit as enigmatic as Michael Moorcockâ€™s Elric – The Voidal. Wildside Press has recently published Coleâ€™s The Long Reach of Night (volume 2) and The Sword of Shadows (volume 3).Volume 1 of the Voidal stories, Oblivion Hand, was published some years ago.
Wildside Press has also published Coleâ€™s Night of Heroes. Here we have a story â€œdrawn from a vast trove of pulp and super-hero sources, from H. Rider Haggard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft and Sax Rohmer.â€
Adrian Cole was one of the earliest members of the British Fantasy Society, and will be fondly remembered by many convention-goers for the â€œserious lecturesâ€ he delivered at early FantasyCons.
