Jack Chalker is an underrated author in my opinion. He wrote in both science fiction and fantasy genres. He even smashed them together a few times with spectacular results. The Changewind Series, The Rings of the Masters Series, and And The Devil Will Drag You Under all made big impacts on me. Without realizing it, I emulated some of the ideas he used in my works as well. Chalker took easily recognized folklore and religious characters and turned them into what if questions. He built world after world based on those questions and peopled them with imaginative and memorable individuals to explore those what ifs. I hope to achieve a glimmer of the brightness he shared in the pages of his works.
