Multiple Formats + Softcover, B&W Book

From the moment a quirky medical examiner falls in love with Jane Doe, he is drawn into the hidden supernatural world behind her murder: a World of Darkness.

This novel set in the new World of Darkness was previously serialized on the White Wolf website, and is now collected together for the first time!

About the Author:

JOSHUA ALAN DOETSCH once built a flesh golem out of grave-robbed parts and leftover Halloween candy. By strange chance, this golem is fueled by rejection slips. Every day it begs and it pleads, "Please, kind sir, keep me alive!" And so Joshua writes. You can thank White Wolf for making the poor golem go hungry for another day.

Joshua is from October Country, Illinois, but currently writes video game dialogue in Montreal. He has a fondness for fedoras, does a mean Christopher Walken impersonation, and, once upon a road trip dreary, wrote a blues song about necrophilia.

Note: The digital edition includes PDF, ePub, and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the novel.

Note: The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

I didn't want to follow the crowd and give this book five stars. I wanted to be realistic. Bring a critical eye to the table. But...Mother Hubbard! This is a good story. A great one! And, honestly, when I look at some elements of it, that sort of surpr [...]

I cannot quite determine how, in it's entirety, this book has so quickly taken a hold on me. During its original run on White Wolf's website, I was lucky enough to come across it, and even then, I felt there was something special about it; there was so [...]

The portal to Narnia may have been a wardrobe, but the portal to fears and nightmares is that dark corner in the back of your closet, at night. I felt as if this novel was written there; I can vividly picture the author crouching over parchment, scribb [...]

You will fall in love with this book the same way Simon Meeks fell in love with his Jane Doe at their first unlikely meeting. The book reads like walk through dream world of wonders and nightmares withs a flow of Poe's dark poems. You are going to peer [...]

You know how much I love this book? I'm on my 3rd read through. Seriously this is one of the best horror fictions I've read in a long time. Even though it is set in the New World of Darkness setting it stands strong as it's own entity. You'll see littl [...]

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.
