    I haven t read this since high school, so when I picked it up 25 years later, I was prepared for a really awful reading experience However, aside from some too convenient plot twists and some other new writer clumsiness, Hughes can be proud of this first novel The two headed dragon is a plus, and the addition of the layer of Western religious archetypes to a fantasy world a tadcomplex, sorry to say, than C S Lewis s _Narnia_ books makes this a most interesting fantasy novel.

    I ve known Bob Hughes for years and have always known he was a great writer and a great thinker, but I recently found this fantasy novel he wrote years ago I must have bought it before I met him and never read it I loved it His story is engaging His characters are rich and full And the backdrop is a land that has history and texture and is not like anything I ve read before I am hoping I can find the other books in the series somewhere.

    Interesting This is the first book in a while that I didn t get by recommendation just picked it up in a bookshop with a Groupon The author sets up an unusually divided land magic, religion, and science , and plants great character seeds Enjoyed itthan the last set, so hopefully the entire trilogy will be rewarding.

    The The Prophet of Lamath was an engaging read that brought a different set of fantasy rules to the table The characters were well fleshed out, and plot was dynamic but not overly complicated I was pleased to learn that this is the first in a trilogy so I can look forward totime in the world spent with these characters Also of note that while I had my suspicions about the author while reading his handling of religion and belief I was pleased to see my suspicions confirmed in that he is The The Prophet of Lamath was an engaging read that brought a different set of fantasy rules to the table The characters were well fleshed out, and plot was dynamic but not overly complicated I was pleased to learn that this is the first in a trilogy so I can look forward totime in the world spent with these characters Also of note that while I had my suspicions about the author while reading his handling of religion and belief I was pleased to see my suspicions confirmed in that he is a Baptist preacher and missionary Although Christianity is not present in this world the behavior of the main character and others belies the writers own firm belief in the truth and how one should behave when one knows the truth A good read for sure

    I rate this item five stars Not because it was amazingly written, had an amazing storyline, or characters that I fell in love with, but because it was the first set of books that brought humor into the fantasy genre for me and worked I know, I know Many others will cry foul and all out the names of Robert Asprin, Allan Dean Foster, and Craig Shaw Gardner But those were different for me Those were comedies written in fantasy worlds Mr Hughes wrote a fantasy that contained comedy It had I rate this item five stars Not because it was amazingly written, had an amazing storyline, or characters that I fell in love with, but because it was the first set of books that brought humor into the fantasy genre for me and worked I know, I know Many others will cry foul and all out the names of Robert Asprin, Allan Dean Foster, and Craig Shaw Gardner But those were different for me Those were comedies written in fantasy worlds Mr Hughes wrote a fantasy that contained comedy It had an impact on me

    The Prophet of Lamath 1979 by Robert Don Hughes, is a humorous Game of Thrones before there even was a Game of Thrones, with Pelman the Powershaper as the main protagonist and the main antagonist It s a noteworthy trick pulling that one off The book reads smoothly but not engagingly, plots along bumpily, offers stock archetypes who never really get to stay archetypical, with a narrative that bouncing about like a pingpong ball.The work is a non Tolkienesque fantasy, featuring no gods, elve The Prophet of Lamath 1979 by Robert Don Hughes, is a humorous Game of Thrones before there even was a Game of Thrones, with Pelman the Powershaper as the main protagonist and the main antagonist It s a noteworthy trick pulling that one off The book reads smoothly but not engagingly, plots along bumpily, offers stock archetypes who never really get to stay archetypical, with a narrative that bouncing about like a pingpong ball.The work is a non Tolkienesque fantasy, featuring no gods, elves, orcs, quests, or anything like that It s pretty much humans running about mucking up each other s lives, and a two headed dragon mistaken for a god that Pelmen gets into a rather vicious argument with itself.The work is eminently skimmable, which I did as I found the finer description rather tepid.A very unplotted book, the characters do their own things, bringing the story repeatedly into odd locations and dislocations Sometimes this worked, and sometimes this didn t In this respect, it slike a fantasy narrative from the 40 s to the 60 s than anything like the 80 s and beyond.In terms of literary orthidoxy, it breaks many rules The head hopping and POV slides about extensively, but rarely destructively The novel features a loose Christian theme, that being the Power Don t worry about it beating you about the head It s there, and it s part of the work, but stays rather low key through the story Being published after Star Wars, it s like the Force, except not the Force, but does something of the same thing.Refreshingly, the book contains little to no cynicism, and no flat out bwa ha ha villains If there s any villain, it s pride, vanity, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and wrath the seven deadly sins sans lust You won t have any problem figuring out which character represents which sin For the most part, this works amazingly well.While being no page turner, the book does have its fun moments If you need a good change of pace, or need to get Game of Thrones out of your soul for a little while, this is a good pick

    A great story, with horrible editing for the e book release.I love the story, and have paperbacks from long ago The editing for this kindle release is atrocious I found so many spelling errors wrong words used that were not in the paperbacks which detracted from the read as a whole Why can t publishers get proper editorial work done for e book releases This is such an injustice to the author
