Legends of the Dark Stranger: Words and Images is a stunning, introspective collection of Richard McDowells selected writings and images that are from his self-books, also called journals or sketchbooks. Their functions varied from address book, shopping lists, and classroom notes, to detailed product designs, business plans, and appointments. These pragmatic entries were created to organize and augment his memory. But it is the words and images reflecting the creative nature of his persona that catches his eye. The artist and dreamer is a constant theme. Having been an artist and a song writer for a long time; carrying a sketchbook was always second nature to him. When he joined the Peace Corp, he began to number them and call them self-books. He has reveled in travel, while life seemed the truest and richest of roads. The moments were there to ponder and reflect upon, through art and song, and memoirs, and pure thoughts of mirth. He has divided Legends of the Dark Stranger into three partsBoomers Story; Songs and Thoughts; and Boomerologyeach with its own unique view of his life and travels.

Sir Dark Sack? Of course. But frankly, I don't know much about him. I've heard that he got pretty bored in his castle and got all excited when he heard he'd have me as a neighbor. Fortunately, his hopes were all in vain.

Max Frei has discovered that the one place he really fits in is the parallel world of Echo. In our world he's a loser, an insomniac with dubious social skills and an addiction to cigarettes. But in Echo, the reality is far stranger. There he is Sir Max, a superb magician and one of the powerful few chosen to defend the land against all possible enemies. And he's finally happy. But when one of his esteemed Knight colleagues tells Max of a strange dream - one that seems disturbingly familiar to Max - Max realises he will have to investigate. The subsequent series of events will remind our hero - and the people he protects - just how tenuous happiness can be. It could be his most dangerous mission yet, but The Stranger's Magic may win him through.

The international-bestselling Russian fantasy author continues the adventures of Sir Max, the lazy gumshoe of the enchanted city of Echo. The tales of Sir Max, who was a daydreaming loser before he discovered the parallel world of Echo, have become an international literary sensation. In the second novel of the Labyrinths of Echoes series, Max is still a hardened smoker, glutton, and all-around loafer. But once again, he finds himself travelling to an alternate universe where he must root out illegal magic as an agent of the Secret Investigative Force. This time, Sir Max is called upon to handle a peculiar political dispute, investigate strange happenings in the cemetery, and when Echo’s police captain is poisoned, he must lead a team of magicians in pursuit of magical outlaws. “Echo is a world of all sorts of plots, a sort of Krypton with tobacco and the counter-universe’s equivalent of vodka.” —Kirkus Reviews
