 In the
1960s while visiting central Africa, Ken Mallory uncovers intriguing
information surrounding his great-grandfather, Lucas Lindsay, who fought in the
Barotseland Civil War of a century earlier. Delving deeper into the puzzle, Ken
begins to identify with Lucas, setting to rest agonizing problems from his own
recent past. Through the eyes of these two young men, different generations of
the same family, Kindred Passage views the native wars of the 1860s, along with
Africa's post-colonial era. Although living one hundred years apart, the
similar dilemmas the Zambezi River country and its people impose on both men
underscore the basically changeless nature of Africa.

About the author

 The author, now retired, claims to have misspent his youthful years wandering the globe in vagabond, gypsy fashion. “I had a severe case of wanderlust,” he says.

This first hand knowledge of far off places and foreign cultures serves as material for the books he writes. His suspenseful adventure stories will have a special appeal to those readers, like himself, who prefer their escapism set in an exotic locale and back-grounded by an open sky. He enjoys the outdoors of the Niagara region where he lives, and reads and writes.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
