It could not be true. How could the Dread Lord
cross the gulf between worlds to Earth?

Steve Wilkinson woke up after months in
a strange coma, dreaming of a battle against evil
in a magical world. Now, he just wants to get
on with his life as a college student. But it's not that
easy. A photo of a "ghost rider" on the cover of
a lurid tabloid proves that Steve's nightmare didn't

His dream enemy, the wizard Belevairn, has
brought his evil minions into OUR world -- and they're
stocking up on automatic weapons!

Steve is the only one who knows how grave the
danger is. But how can one college student stop the
armies of evil?

   "But it is,  Master  Wilkinson,"  Belevairn  said,
sensing  his thoughts.   "I defeated  you at  Quarin
