Stephen Bacon | 1 comments Hello.

Basically I have been searching for this book to read again for at least 17 years. I borrowed it from an old friend once, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
There will be some spoilers below and I am pretty sure on everything unless it has a ? at the end of the word/sentence.

Here goes the basis of the plot is below, I was in my early 20's when I read it and remember it being quite a thick book.


Chap wakes up cant remember much about who he is.
derelict house, woman?
finds a 'portal'? to another world*place* through a ?octagonal tower?
remembers more when he is over there, remembers he is a magician see's the ?woman? purple? familiar/shapeshifter
Thinks he has to reunite the 2 worlds, so works towards it, the familiar helps him, but is unhappy about doing so.
The meet 'someone' on the other world who pushes them forward and faster.
towards the end he remembers who he is, who the lady?familiar ? is and why he shouldn't reunite the worlds.
