Writer of both fantasy short stories and novels the bulk of A. E. Mableson's tales deal with the magical realm of Island World. The epic adventure fantasy series Tales of Island World relates the history of this unfortunate world. Island World lives under the curse of the evil creature Gwaum.
Born of fire in the ancient realm of Napoli, Gwaum grew in power until he became stronger than his master, the Wizard Darnay. His first meal was to devour an unfortunate young woman. This fueled a desire for the taste of human flesh that consumed the monster.
The epic fantasy adventure series Tales of Island World begins with the novella, Wizard of the Golden Star. Arii was the greatest Wizard of the Golden Star of all the ages. He arises in the forests of Island World as the monster Gwaum holds sway over the land. As a young boy he watched, horrified, as Gwaum devoured his family as he picked red berries for his mother to turn into a delicious pie.
His uncle, sensing a premonition that something was wrong, finds the young boy hiding in the forest. He adopts Arii and teaches him wizard craft. Thus begins the epic struggle as Arii seeks to destroy the monster that destroyed his family.
The first phase of the history of Island World continues with the next three tales of this series. These include The Rise of Gwaum, The Promise of the White Rock and The Covenant. Bound together in a single novel, these novellas form The Tale of the White Rock.
The Tale of the White Rock is the beginning novel in the series Tales of Island World. The series chronicles tales that which encompass the history of that faraway, mystical land.
