Seamus Cullen, using a humor ranging from the gentle to the ribald, has joined past mythology to a post-atomic age. In doing so, he has created a magical world for adults as unique as the one Richard Adams created for children in Watership Down.The book begins many years from now, when, in a rude new world built in the atomized ashes of the old, a son is born to Barlocks, the Dark King - a son part mortal and part elf. This son, Flondrix, the product of Barlocks unheard-of sexual transgressions with an Elvan princess, sets out on a gargantuan quest for both a past and a future, wending his way through neo-medieval kingdoms of dwarves, people, and elves. What the naive Flondrix never realizes is that he holds the future of the world between his thighs.The books own special apocalypse is reached in the confrontation between the distorted skills of the scientist-sorcerer Kranz and the innocent sensuality of Flondrix and Astra, the daughter of the Elvan King. The result: a fourth world war - of magic.
