The War Maker

Fiana Drost was the first one to discover the terrible black thing that could not be seen, touched, smelled or explained.
The thing was in fact not known to be black, but was only supposed to be black. Rather, a smothering impenetrable blackness was the predominent sensation of those who came into contact with the impossible darksome thing and lived to speak of it. Or perhaps it was after all black. No one could say–not even those who stared directly into the blackness and heard the beating of its leathery wings.
It was confusing to say the least.

From Will Murray’s introduction to the 1996 publication of the first four chapters of The War Maker:

“The War Maker is based on the unused portions of the outline to The Devil Genghis–which is most of it actually!– and falls neatly between Fortress of Solitude and The Devil Genghis. It’s designed to tie up a lot of loose ends left dangling when those novels were spaced apart, defeating Dent’s plan to run them as consequtive adventures.”
