3rd Era Novels
A thousand years before the Winter War, proud Elgo, valiant prince of the hard-riding, hard-fighting Vanadurin, and his warband defeat the seemingly invincible dragon Sleeth. The fabulous wealth in the drake's lair is brought home amid great rejoicing. But little did they realize that there was more in their bounty than gems and gold - death for noble and peasant, war between Man and Dwarf, strife and destruction beyond reckoning. And in the midst of disaster wings the greatest dragon of them all, Black Kalgalath, in league with the evil wizard, Andrak, to avenge Sleeth's death and claim the Dragon-cursed hoard.
Against this unholy alliance two sworn enemies each set forth to find the legendary silveron warhammer that could chellenge even these two terrible foes. But neither Elyn of Jord nor Thork of Kachar could know of the perils that lay ahead ... perils to life, and limb, and heart.
Yet even had they known that their trek would end in the clutch of death, they still would have gone, for it was their destiny to face the Dragondoom.

Changes and Corrections in The Iron Tower Omnibus Edition
In case you are wondering, the changes made in the omnibus edition of The Iron Tower are:
a) New foreword
b) Clean up a few grammatical things, as well as some typos, and a mental error: E.g., "all right" instead of "alright", and correcting an old slip-of-the-mind error I made when I should have written "east" instead of "west" during one of Brega's conversations
c) Some changes are to take a bit of the "cardboard" out of Modru: in particular, eliminating his hissing laughter and making his initial appearance in the story a bit more sinister, as I did in Tales of Mithgar
d) And some changes are to bring The Iron Tower into agreement with the later books: e.g., the Gjeenian penny summons from the High King as per Hèl's Crucible; a better description of Laurelin's entrance into the Modru's throne chamber and his appearance (similar to Tales of Mithgar); also giving an explanation for the "renegades" among Dragons and Mages, as per The Dragonstone; and including a mention of the Elvenship Eroean in the final battles of the Winter War, as per Silver Wolf, Black Falcon
