Stranger Things Happen + Fiasco Bundle

Stranger Things Happen + Fiasco Bundle

Multiple File Formats

"Kelly Link". "Fiasco Playset." If you already know what those four words mean together, you're currently quivering with joy. If not? This bundle is for you.

Fiasco is a storytelling game of unfortunate ambitions, desperate measures, and plans gone horribly awry. Kelly Link writes the brilliant, creepy, funny, disturbingly surreal mashups of the fantastic and the ordinary that Salon called "an alchemical mixture of Borges, Raymond Chandler, and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer.'"

This bundle contains the game itself, a book of Kelly's stories, and the Stranger Things Happen playset  by Benjamin Rosenbaum -- providing settings, details, and special rules that set Fiasco in a Linkian world. In addition, you also get Rosenbaum's similarly surreal debut collection, The Ant King.

Fiasco reliably produces a satisfying narrative arc in a single three-hour session with no prep, so this is all you need to insert yourself and some friends in the middle of a Kelly Link story of your very own.

What's Included?

This bundle includes a full set of digital files (.pdf, .epub, .mobi) for Fiasco, Stranger Things Happen, the Ant King and Other Stories, as well as a PDF for the Stranger Things Happen Fiasco playset.


Stories from Stranger Things Happen have won the Nebula, Tiptree, and World Fantasy Award. Stranger Things Happen was a Salon Book of the Year, one of the Village Voice’s 25 Favorite Books of 2001, and was nominated for the Firecracker Alternative Book Award.

"Kelly Link’s debut collection fuses storytelling smarts with postmodern flair, Nancy Drew with Philip K. Dick… But behind the fancy, darker shapes emerge." —Village Voice

“Benjamin Rosenbaum is one of the best new science fiction writers working in the field today.”
—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Fiasco is one of the greatest storytelling RPGs I've ever played. I highly recommend it." Wil Wheaton

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
