Tierney is the author's magnum opus: an epic alternate history dark fantasy Cthulhu Mythos novel that featurs Tierney's most famous characters, Simon of Gitta and John Taggart. Set in the Holy Land during the time of the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, Simon of Gitta is on mission to avenge the deaths of his parents, seeking revenge in blood against the Roman officials who commited the murders. As he travels the Holy Lands with his mentor Dositheus, and their student Menander, they become entangled in a complex plot designed to call down a monstrous alien entity to herald a new aeon on Earth. John Taggart, the time traveler from Tierney's THE WINDS OF ZARR becomes involved with Simon of Gitta, as their separate quests converge toward a common goal of saving the very Earth. This novel should appeal to fans of fantasy and sword & sorcery fiction, in the vein of Robert E. Howard, and the elements of the Cthulhu Mythos will satisfy the many fans of H.P. Lovecraft.
