Get the quest, kill the monsters, grab the loot, don’t die. How hard can adventuring be? When the party is a fashionista wizard more concerned with appearences than loot, a thief that picks locks by ripping them apart, a ranger more interested in talking to plants than people, and a paladin that just wants to get paid, then even a simple quest can prove a challenge! Finding themselves contractually obligated to retrieve the legendary Dragon’s Veil, the members of the Goldthirst Company must travel through dangerous wilderness, overcoming savage monsters, violent geography, irritated goats and their mutual antipathy to reclaim an ancient treasure.

88197313_10221915084803870_2172820209834917888_n The Road to Thule by David R. Lee    £9.95

A techno-magical dystopian novel set in a flooded world, with eight songs. ‘Souls such as ours bear within them the terrible energies of cosmic fire and ice, the anvils of the giants. We are of the Allfather’s brood, and were forged for something greater, something that reality shatters on. You are of that bloodline, Alex, and you will come to know it.? Exiled from his pleasant life in the heathen Kingdom of Wessex, Alex Tyler embarks on a journey through the flooded British Isles’ archipelago of tiny nations, to the far North. There, he is swept up into the power of Thule, masters its secret magical technology and becomes the warlord who will save his people. As Wessex and the other nations of the British Isles lurch into outright war with monotheist fanatics the Pure Light, the outcome will depend on two strange technologies. The problem is, one of them is deadly for any but a tiny, genetic elite to use, and the other, only Thule knows about.

88127852_10221915097284182_754438866995249152_n Twisted Power by David R. Lee    £9.95

The prequel to David R. Lee’s ‘The Road to Thule’. Magic is real, and will decide the fate of the world. The waters are rising. Displaced people pour across borders. Desperate times give birth to desperate solutions. For fanatical believer Jemima Tyson, the answer to overpopulation is to cull the human race – gently, at first. For scientist Darius Raven, the key is a new technology that promises to awaken the slumbering giant of humanity’s magical powers. On the trail of a solution to the world’s energy drought, he stumbles upon something much stranger, and becomes something new, something that had only existed in old tales – a magician, whose magical powers seldom fail. For Malachi Herz, peace-loving killer, agent without an Agency, what matters most is the defeat of the Pure Light, a cultic mishmash of the most militaristic aspects of Christianity and of Islam. As the old nations implode, sucked dry by all-powerful corporations, religious wars erupt worldwide, and the new magic becomes the foremost weapon. But of course, power comes with a price. For some, the cost is terrible.

“A powerful concoction of magic, technology, and economic collapse – intense and brilliant.” Steven Poore – author of Heir to the North
