More seasonal freebies

A cross-post from the Mirabilis blog today for any comic book fans who found a Kindle under the Christmas tree. Leo Hartas, Martin McKenna and I have just re-released the Kindle mini-episodes collecting the first thirty pages of Mirabilis: Winter volume 1. If you're signed up for Amazon Prime you can borrow the Kindle episodes anytime, but even if not you can get the first two completely free tomorrow or Saturday.

Episode 1.1 is "Stung!" which first appeared in DFC #30 (the 2008 Christmas issue). Jack is about to face a duel to the death when he finds an ancient two-headed coin that's destined to change his life forever. Get "Stung!" from the Kindle Store US here and UK here.

Episode 1.2 is "The Door in the Water". Jack meets Gus for the first time - but it's in a dream, so maybe it doesn't count. And when he wakes up he goes witch-hunting, only it turns out the witch is the one with the killing jar. That's in the Kindle Store US here and UK here.

Episode 1.3, "The Wrong Side of Bedlam" sees Gus (that's Talisin of the Shining Brow to us) escaping from a padded cell, Jack trapped in a witch bottle, and the boffins of the Royal Mythological Society explaining what's in store now the green comet has reappeared. It's in the Kindle Store US here and UK here.

And if you don't have a Kindle, don't despair, because all of those early episodes are online right here.


  1. They're quite readable on my HTC Desire. :)

  2. fabled lands are amazing, my only wish is that the series could be complete to finish the world. i dont think i am alone in saying that those books are priceless....... btw, are you planning to reprint books 5-6?

  3. Yeah, we intend to, as soon as we can afford it! We need to sell a few more of the first 4 to generate enough income to pay for the next two. But hopefully we'll be able to do that this year. But we can't promise anything I'm afraid!

    so glad there's still hope for the fabled lands, and you guys never know.... maby DQ will help to get more ppl into gaming. theyre sort of being advertised on amazon already- if you click on DQ or fighting fantasy it comes up with a list of (fabled lands) books that the same customers went on to buy. never seen a bad revew about any of the fabled lands books.
