Wizard Reborn MediaNovel® Introduction

Collage of story elements involving the Wizard Reborn MediaNovel® by Scott Mark HuelsmanEnter the fantasy world of Mairiga, a continent crumbling under the weight of too many good intentions gone bad. Although the honorable country of Pirapa is being attacked by the Angel of Death and her army of benzars, the Inner Circle--the governing body of Mairiga--refuses to intervene as punishment for the unauthorized execution of one of its own.

A newly-reborn wizard named Redfern then boldly steps forward and bands together a party of heroes to retrieve the Shard of Lyfe from the Evilroot Forest and help save Pirapa from certain doom. However, Redfern himself harbors a dark secret, one that eventually brings the entire party to the brink of destruction!

Join Redfern and his allies as they attempt to restore the Sislan Utopia, save their homeland and way of life, and learn that even the most noble of convictions can do more harm than good without genuine honor, compassion and enlightenment.

This online version of Wizard Reborn works just like the original novel released in 1996 on CD-ROM: Start at page one and work your way through in linear fashion. Each online page constitutes about a third of a traditional book page (there are nearly 800 online pages versus about 300 printed pages to the novel). So the read is broken up into smaller chunks online.

In addition to the text, each page is represented by an original picture depicting the storyline at the moment, beautifully illustrated by Steven Wirtz of Fond du Lac, WI. An original music score developed by Merek Royce Press of New York City was also created for the novel, with nearly every page playing 30-60 seconds of relevant background music. Accompanying audio and video clips depicting the thoughts, feelings and emotions of the primary characters are also provided.
