THE GHOST ANTS OF GRYLLADESH by Clark T. CarltonThis week, Patrick and Tracy welcome Clark T. Carlton, author of THE GHOST ANTS OF GRYLLADESH.

About THE GHOST ANTS OF GRYLLADESH: The Ghost Ants of Grylladesh continues the story of an empire in ruins, vicious and mysterious usurpers, and a young man who would lead his people from hopeless squalor to a stable utopia.

In the Barley Lands to the East, the deformed and demented Emperor Volokop has blinded the hero Anand and sent him to Dranveria with a message for its rulers. But when Anand is captured by a mysterious people, the fate of his family and his new nation of Bee-Jor is suddenly in jeopardy.

Because Bee-Jor remains in chaos. In the South, starving refugees from Hulkren have overwhelmed Mound Palzhad and segregated into warring camps to fight for their very survival … with some descending into cannibalism. Beyond them, the roach riders of The Promised Clearing threaten a new conflict in a quest for more land. And in the West, a new peril arises from the Velvet Ant League, one not seen in a thousand generations.

Aiding all of these enemies is the deluded Queen Trellana, who has gathered the royal women of the East to march out of Bee-Jor and leave it vulnerable to attack.

The founding of Bee-Jor was Anand’s dream of a perfect society, but without their leader, is that all it ever will be: a dream?

About Clark T. Carlton: Clark T Carlton is the son of a barefooted, Floridian cowboy and a beauty queen from the Land of Cotton who ventured North to raise their children in the long shadow of New York City. When he was a teenager, his family moved from a blue collar melting pot to a segregated and conservative enclave of Southern California, an event which forever altered his world view.

He studied English and Film at Boston University and UCLA and has worked as a screen and television writer, a journalist, and as a producer of reality television in addition to a thousand and one other professions. He has always had more blue than white in his collar.

His Antasy series of books began with Prophets of the Ghost Ants, followed up by THE PROPHET OF THE TERMITE GOD and Book 3 – THE GHOST ANTS OF GRYLLADESH, dropped at the end of June.
