The Max August Magikal Thrillers

Max August was a point man when he served during the Vietnam War, the guy who had to lead his patrol through dangers he couldn’t possibly anticipate. After Vietnam he became a disc jockey, and he loved that life until he met Cornelius Agrippa. For nearly five centuries, Agrippa fought against a conspiracy, now known as the FRC, which aims to corrupt and destroy everything good and untainted and take over the world. Max has been chosen by fate to fight those who would use magick to destroy freedom and wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world, all in the name of profit. He learns from Agrippa what he can to fight the conspiracy, including how to become Timeless, to never age. He is not immortal, though, and he faces death in many forms in each successive novel as he must deal with a new threat from the FRC, taking him and those who help him in the fight from San Francisco to Barbados to the shores of Suriname, and from the Nevada desert to Indiana.
