The Harrow is a classic adventure novel, written by Philip Mazza, and published by Omni Publishers. Set in a different time and place, the story features several races, to include man, animals, and those of magic.
Mazza has a mythological approach to races, dividing them into various groups, which like ethnic groups tend to live in different areas and develop different cultures and physical characteristics.
Although the various races live in their natural environment, they possess their own culture, language, proverbs, poetry, and mythology. In Mazza's fantasy world of the Harrow, many races endure the hardships and trials of peace and war, an eternal struggle of good versus evil.
For Mazza, due to the mass amount of history in his books, culture changes over time.
The major cause of certain cultures is due to where groups of peoples come from, where their ancestors come, what languages they speak, where a language has roots in, and what race they are. Based on this perspective, Mazza segments those of the Harrow as either of the race of man or similar origins, creatures, those who possess magic, and brood.
