Time Warriors: An Idea Whose Time Didn't Come.
One series, or rather mini-series seemed to be tailor made for me. It was called TIME WARRIORS, and it teamed a modern day Mercenary named Black Jack Hogan and a barbarian warrior from pre-history named Brom. The two were mystically linked somehow and would be called to each other's time when they were needed, so Brom would come to the present when Blackjack was in danger and vice versa. Great concept, eh?
Except I didn't like the writing. The books were credited to a David North, but I don't know if that was a real guy or a house name. Gold Eagle used a lot of house names. I bought all three books in the mini series and tried to read them but they just didn't work for me. Apparently they didn't work for many other people either as Time Warriors never became a regular series.
So why did I think of this twenty three year old series suddenly? The usual thing. Digging through some boxes of books and I found one of the paperbacks. No idea why I saved it. I haven't come across the other two, so it probably just got past me when I moved in 2004. I'll put it aside for the next Friends of the Library book sale. For the Time Warriors, time has run out.
