A wave of water in the shape of a clawed hand crashes onto the deck of Wavegrazer. The wheel spins violently; the ship lurches and Cloran’s men are flung into the sea. As the masts break and the sky goes black, one name flutters across Cloran’s lips. “Adaire…”.
Cloran has spent his life at sea and is set to retire. He hopes to marry his long-suffering fiance Adaire, but his hopes are dashed when King Bozin sends him on one final journey to the far-flung icy island city of Miotes. This time, however, the Sea is jealous of Cloran, and will never give him up to Adiare freely, but he has no choice, and accepts the mission begrudgingly. “One final journey,” he tells himself. No matter what happens, it will be his last.
Join Cloran, First Mate Lenny, Greaves, Darrell, Turner, Mallory, Richards and Jenkins as they navigate Wavegrazer through icy channels, floating castles, magical islands inhabited with faerie women and deadly reefs patrolled by the evil man-killing crab, Krackaman.

The Tale of Cloran Hastings is an original fantasy novel. It takes place in a world I invented and is not affiliated with World of Warcraft. It is a high seas fantasy adventure story suitable for epic fantasy buffs and young adult fiction fantasy readers.
For many years, I sat on this book, which I wrote in 2004, long before I ever became Oxhorn. I’ve toyed with it, tinkered with it and now, finally, have published it. If every man gets one chance to make it, this is mine. I hand wrote it, lingered over every syllable and made sure that it was as perfect as I could make it before publishing it. Little frustrates me more than buying a book only to find that the editor didn’t pay close attention to grammar and spelling, so I made sure to edit the novel many times before publishing. This book represents over a decade of hard work and passion, and I am thrilled to finally offer it to you, in whichever format you wish. Head on over to cloranhastings.com to purchase it in paperback, hardcover or as an eBook for Amazon Kindle. Other eBook formats are soon to come.

Thanks for your support! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. The success of this book will determine if I will be able to write a sequel and continue making Oxhorn movies and music. If the book is a hit, I will be free to produce a plethora of new stuff more frequently like I used to, including new movies, albums, singles and books, instead of one thing every few months or so.
I released The Tale of Cloran Hastings in time for Christmas. You have plenty of time to buy it for friends and family. If they love my movies and music, they’ll love the book!
