BILLIAS, Stephen
(? -)
   US writer whose first novel, The American Book of the Dead (1987), makes use of Zen points of view to approach an understanding of holocaust. Quest for the 36 (1988) rather similarly convokes the 36 just men from Jewish folklore to see if, together again, they can save the world from fantasy-tinged chaos. SB's third and fourth novels were ties: Deryni Challenge: A Crossroads Adventure in the World of Katherine Kurtz's Deryni * (1988), and Rune Sword \#4: Horrible Humes * (1991).
