Quick Preview


Gram is a grouchy, boring dwarf who spends his days with the only thing he cares about: banging iron into interesting shapes. His jovial friend Faff annoys him; his ridiculous people, the dwarves of the Homes, irritate him; and to top it all off an inconsequential spat with Tad, a mining foreman, lands him a tidy exile for a year and a day. While he is away his land is thrust into rebellion and war, but his exile is not without purpose. There, and on his return, he learns that his people have deep roots, that they are stronger and more noble than he ever thought, and that great history, as well as danger, reside in the ground beneath his feet.
Homes is a fantasy novel that feels both familiar and fresh, immediate and ancient. It is playful and witty and deep as the bowels of the earth. 

Homes is a journey of identity and roots.
Join the dwarves in an exciting tale of adventure, war, and history!

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.
