Hunt at the Well of Eternity by Gabriel Hunt
The Hunt series seems to be like the old pulp adventures of the past, or like the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys syndicates -- various authors writing installments of a planned series under a single pen name. It was an exciting adventure, kind of a cross between Indiana Jones and James Bond, and a little on the short side (as those books typically were) which made it a fast and fun read. I read it partly because I was planning on writing my own series in an old-fashioned style, and I wanted to get a taste for the pulp adventure flavor. But I liked the book on its own merits, and plan on picking the series back up at some point and reading the others, as well.
