Jonat's Saga


Jonat’s Saga is one of the first Gloranthan novels that I wrote in the earliest days of Glorantha (around 1967). Jonat, the young barbarian, travels to decadent Seshnela and returns home to save his people. This volume is SO old that it’s just about useless as research source material for Glorantha. For instance, the deities are quite different: here I see Erta or Ara, the white moon goddess of death; and Tol, red moon wargod, etc.) This is the star appearance by that later-famous Gloranthan race of darkness, the Tamali. (huh? who?) But this is one of the early, formative pieces of an ambitious though perhaps unskilled young writer.
