Book Description

11 Aug 1988 Orbit Books
RIDDLE, RING, AND QUEST In Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains, tales are told of strange lights, of mysterious roads...of wondrous folk from enchanted realms. All these are hidden from mortal men, and those who have the gift to look on them are both blessed and doomed... THE WINDMASTER Young David Sullivan never dreamed that the myths of marvels and magic he loved were real. But in his blood was the gift of Second Sight. And near his family's rural farm lay an invisible track between worlds...where he would soon become a pawn in the power game of the Windmaster, an evil usurper among those the Celts called the Sidhe. David's only protection would be a riddle's answer and an enchanted ring...as he began his odyssey of danger into things unknowing and unknown... "A SPECIAL MAGIC...A DELIGHT FROM START TO FINISH." -Sharon Webb "WINDMASTER'S BANE has heart, an easy humor, and the simple wisdom of compassion." -Michael Bishop

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy, with a little bit of Southern flavor. 13 Jun 2004
By citan-uzuki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this little paperback while I was attending the University of Georgia back in the late 1980s. The book immediately captivated me. It's a mixture of fantasy, with a little bit of southern flavor. The story is about the adventures of young David Sullivan and his friends, all high school students living in a rural area of the Georgia mountains. Not your typical rural teen ager, David's interests tend to focus on legends, myths, and magic. He spends a lot of his time trying to learn as much as he can about the mystical, while at the same time, doing the things that most boys his age do. The adventure begins when David accidentally makes contact with the Sidhe, a people with magical powers who live in some sort of parallel world.
I met Mr. Tom Deitz back in 1987. He was working at the University of Georgia main library at the time. Mr. Deitz was kind enough to sign my copy of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond in the Rough 2 April 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
It's a good thing I met Tom Deitz at a book festival here in Nashville. Otherwise I would have never heard of the David Sullivan series. Windmaster's Bane begins this highly original series. Mixing elements of Irish, Celtic, and Indian mythology, Deitz tells the story of an ordinary young Georgia teen who, through a freak accident, is given "sight" into the realm of the Sidhe, faerie creatures who live in a world which lay parallel to our own. Soon enough, David is forced to enter the realm to save the life of his brother, who has been marked by a Sidhe assassin. If you are tired of endless Tolkien clones and are looking for an original tale of modern fantasy, read this book and the rest in the David Sullivan series

5.0 out of 5 stars In memoriam 18 May 2009
By Eric A. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I knew Tom during the eighties and kept in touch with him off and on over the last twenty years. He was a kind man and a brilliant author. He died too young. He is missed but will still live on in the lives of all those he met and all those who had a chance to read any of his 20 books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical - portraying every fantasy fan's dream. 26 May 1998
By FireMagess@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book! Like most fantasy fans, I like to daydream and what-if a good story. I couldn't find anything that I would change. This story is well written, creative, thought out, and imaginative. Tom Dietz deserves kudo's for this one!
