New Release: Bones of the Empire

Bones of the Empire - Amazon
Today it is with great pleasure that I bring to you the final book in the Fall of Eldvar series: Bones of the Empire. As epic as this series has been, the final book is that much more epic. I’ve been honored to be a part of it.
Now, go see how it all ends for Estin and Feanne!

With the war between Turessi and the rest of the known world spinning out of control and the mists closing in, a small group heads into the heart of Turessi on the chance that they can make a difference. The armies they had attempted to gather are nowhere to be found and the Turessian armies grow stronger every day. The few free cities left have closed their gates, trying to slow the invasion from Turessi. Hope is dwindling fast.The few heroes left know that they have no chance of winning against the Turessian forces. Can six people, who everyone–including the gods–has abandoned, possibly be enough to turn the tide of war?

Paperback Coming Soon


Jim Galford is a system administrator in Colorado with a long background in creative writing. While the Eldvar world is not his first creation, it is his first widely-published work.

Jim fancies his life as being roughly similar to the average Dilbert cartoon. Whether accurate or not, that perspective has led him to create fictional worlds as an escape from the boring doldrums of the real world. Eldvar is an extension of this and was initially thought on as a potential world for a game system only. The more that game setting was fleshed out, the more ideas were put together that did not fit the game, but stood on their own. Eventually, the story world was spun off to live on its own without the game, which hasn’t fared nearly as well as the books.

The Eldvar series was finally assembled into a workable story as a result of far too much downtime following spinal surgery. With nothing to do but stare at the ceiling for months while recovering, Jim set out to put together a pile of thoughts he had come up with over the previous year. Within several months, the framework for In Wilder Lands was done and the world was well on its way to being discovered by the public.

Since then, Jim has continued his day job, but works regularly on several new story ideas for the Eldvar world. Additionally, he continues to create side-stories from In Wilder Lands that may be released at conventions or a special release of the book.
