Death is only the beginning ... ARACHNE: A PYRE OF ANGELS is an unforgettable work of epic fantasy. Kent David Kelly’s haunting saga chronicles the death and afterlife of Elspeth Wight, a young Steam Age noblewoman whose beloved sister Christabel has died. Without Christabel, the heartbroken Elspeth forsakes her own beliefs. Tormented and reckless, she dares to believe in the whispers of her mysterious elder — and her childhood protector — Symon Adler. Symon swears to Elspeth that there is a secret afterlife, an unreachable Deathlessness, where Christabel’s soul yet breathes even as its memory begins to fade. Symon promises Elspeth that she and her sister will be reunited in a dark and Gothic paradise, the eternal purgatorial netherworld known only as Embris. But Embris is the ...

Dear beloved Sanity, I miss you. Wish you were here. ~ An Alice adventure like no other … While out on an air-boating steam jaunt with her sister Lorina and Mister Dodgson (otherwise known as Lewis Carroll), Alice finds herself caught up in the tentacles of madness. Inspired by the brilliantly haunting Dreamlands works of H. P. Lovecraft, Cthulhu in Wonderland hurls the reader down the Zoog Hole and into a steampunk, dystopian underworld. There, Alice discovers the sanity-leeching terrors of Cthulhu, Shoggoths (of tea-drinking, human-imitating variety, and the other kind), the Jabberwock, the demoniac Blood Duchess, the tyrannical Queen in Crimson, and the King in Yellow himself. Filled with macabre dark humor of the spicy (yet dry) and madness-...

THE MORE SINISTER urban legends concerning the Steam Tunnel Incident run as follows: A young genius, seduced and deluded by a mind-controlling fantasy game, abandoned his Satanic gaming cult because he feared for his life.  He then delved into the netherworld, a labyrinthine “dungeon” of steam tunnels running for miles beneath a sprawling university.  There, under the influence of drugs, occult talismans, evil magic or mere insanity, he mistook fantasy for reality and tried to slay his invoked dragons, demons and devils in real life.  Finally, he became hopelessly lost in the tunnels. Facing a slow and horrible demise in the endless dark, he committed suicide.  Or, he was murdered by a conspiracy of Lucifer-worshipping gamer-cultists who silenced him to keep their secret safe. ...

In the years before I created the Castle Oldskull line of supplements for fantasy role-playing games, I became very low-key famous over on Amazon for having the most highly regarded early Kindle edition of the Alice works, as written by Lewis Carroll. (If you were ever curious (or curiouser) as to why my studio is named Wonderland Imprints, with Alice hiding in the logo, now you know.) But truth be told, it was my love of a sword & sorcery game – written by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson – that first led me down the Land of Dungeons rabbit hole some 40+ years ago. Therefore I am proud and happy to provide my preferred edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to the gamers and fantasy fiction devotees of DriveThruRPG. This is not a game, but it is rather Lewis Carroll’s full ...

LOVECRAFT remains unique among the conceptualists and imagination drivers in weird fiction. Not only was he an intellectual and creative genius, he understood the unlimited power inherent in artistic collaboration. He even collaborated intensely with other literary artists that he would never meet. Through such entrusted sharing, he encouraged other writers and visionaries to enmesh their own visions and fantasies with the darkly emergent world of his own Cthulhu Mythos. He sincerely believed that through such shared creation, the unreal unreality of his worlds — their “verisimilitude” — would be exponentially strengthened, thereby creating more deeply resonant works that would cause the reader to involuntarily doubt, and then journey beyond, the perilous borderland which lies bet...

LORD DUNSANY was the revered idol of H. P. Lovecraft. As he once humbly noted, “Dunsany indeed has said, exquisitely, almost everything I could possibly wish to say. So that when I indulge in sheer phantasy, I can do no more than imitate him.” Lovecraft’s observance led him into darker realms of visionary weird fiction, inspiring him to create his own universe beyond the Dreamlands, a world that Dunsany could never approach — that of the Cthulhu Mythos. One of Lord Dunsany’s most inspirational works was The Gods of Pegana (1905), which I have used as the origin for my own World of Oldskull. ~ For reference, see: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/203882/CASTLE-OLDSKULL--The-Pegana-Mythos. ~ Through my artwork and writing, over the years I have reconceived Dunsany

Format
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.
