Castle Perilous is a dangerous place to live. But some of its Guests are danger addicts.

It’s been years since Gene Ferraro, champion swordsman, has had a real adventure. He finds a swashbuckling world of pirates and manages to have a rousing time battling zombies, vampires, and an evil empire or two.

Linda Barclay, resident Castle mage, reluctantly accompanies him but finds more romance than she ever expected.

Meanwhile, back at the Castle, its magic goes awry (what again?—that trick never works!) and Lord Incarnadine decides to fix it once and for all. To do so, he has to violate the laws of . . . not just the Universe, but the Multiverse.

Cleve Dalton, mild-mannered retiree, finds himself a pawn in a game of dragons.

There’s more, much more, in the latest adventure set in the castle with 144,000 doorways to other worlds—CASTLE PERILOUS.

( Why read the 9th book in a series? Read it, you’ll have no problems with it. And after you do, you will want to read the other 8 books—all available online in paper or electronic format.)
