Neither swords-and-sorcery nor Tolkienesque romance, "Earth Magic"
presents an archaic world in the tradition of the Northern European
epic poems. Haldane, the young son of the Get warlord Black Morca,
encounters a witch in the woods who unsettles his composure with
prophecies of strange events and major changes. He returns home to
find the first of the prophecies already come true--his father has
been off raiding the more civilized countries to the West and has
returned with a Western princess for Haldane to marry. Morca's
ambitions arouse mistrust and anger among the other Get lords, and
soon Haldane finds himself fleeing for his life with only a wizard
of uncertain skills as his companion. Their journey will take them
through hidden realms, to a decisive moonlight battle on Stone
Heath amid the great menhirs, a place charged with earth magic and
bloody memory. "Earth Magic" is one of several collaborations of
the husband-and-wife team of Cory and Alexei Panshin, who received
the 1990 Hugo award for their history of science fiction, "The
World Beyond the Hill,"
