From official release/information:
In Empire of the East, Fred Saberhagen told the tale of Rolf, a human pitted against the Emperor and his demons. Living in an age when science is myth and magic rules, Rolf's only hope lies in finding the Elephant and helping the demon-hating entity Ardneh overcome the Emperor and the archdemon Orcus.
In The Swords series, Saberhagen picked up the story of that distant Earth a long time later. A dozen magical Swords -- each with its own unique power -- set human kingdoms at war in a game played by the gods. Heroes, villains and mostly-innocent bystanders were swept up in battles to control the power of the Swords...with one Sword fated to reign supreme.
Now, he bridges these two series in Ardneh's Sword, a tale that answers many questions...
