Dilvish, the Damned: a collection of related stories. Escaping from Hell was just the beginning. Two torturous centuries in Hell left Dilvish with only one purpose: to wreak his vengeance upon the man who had damned him - Jelerak, the most powerful and feared sorcerer in the land. These 11 stories recount Dilvish's adventures after his escape from Hell, and before he meets his arch enemy in ultimate battle in the novel The Changing Land. Dilvish and his companion, the magical steel horse, Black scour the earth in search of Jelerak. Their path takes them to an enchanted city whose movable buildings form a deadly trap; to the palace of the last worshiper of an ancient god, who wants nothing more from Dilvish than his life; to the scene of a massacre a century old, where Dilvish is called upon to right an ancient wrong... On the way, Dilvish finds himself caught ii the midst of a war, used as a pawn in two sorcerer's deadly game for power, and finally standing before the unbreachable walls of the Tower of Ice - the stronghold of Jelerak the Sorcerer.
