Arcane Synthesis: A Blended-Genre Anthology
Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
Hardcover, B&W Book

Eight epic stories from the 31st Century: a blend of fantasy and science fiction, horror and hope, by new and established authors—different voices revealing a single, blended-genre vision.

•    A homeless boy struggles to silence the voices in his head and master his burgeoning mental powers
•    After bonding with a plant companion in the swamp, a naive mage finds wisdom and acceptance
•    Trapped on a magic-scarred world, the descendants of a crashed mech carrier learn to live without technology
•    A secret order of knights face overwhelming odds to stop a powerful being from the future
•    On a world obsessed with magic, a stranded mech pilot turned private eye is hired to crack a murder case implicating technology
•    A ragtag band of opportunists race to find a world-shattering weapon before their enemies do
•    The truth about a missing child lies in a treacherous forest harboring lethal ancient technology
•    A sentient train and its crew uncover a secret that threatens everything they hold dear
The Cosmoverse is a place where one seemingly insignificant person can change everything—not merely in one city or on one world, but perhaps even across the dimensions.

Over 400 pages (7 novellas and 1 novelette). Illustrations accompany each story.

These stories and most of our upcoming fiction are set in our Cosmoverse Campaign Setting.

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.
