S. Andrew Swann

So far, I have read most of two series (Forests of the Night and Hostile Takeover) by S. Andrew Swann (try saying that three times fast), as well as God's Dice. The only thing the two series and the single book have in common is that they were all written by a very tallented author. I really enjoyed all of these books. They had good plots, lots of suspense, and nice action.

Books I've Read by S. Andrew Swann

God's Dice

What he doesn't realize is that his tests are opening gateways between alternate worlds in which he leads quite different lives--and one thing that all the different Richards have in common is their dreams of this magical place.
