Terra Incognita
: unknown territory: an unexplored country or field of knowledge
-Merriam Webster

You are holding a ticket in your hands.
A ticket for a voyage of thrills, wonder, and discovery as seven of today's top fantasists, each one a master of Heroic Fantasy, transport you to lands beyond your imagination. Lands of fantasy and adventure. And the only passport needed is your imagination.

Howard Andrew Jones sets sail into adventure with a group of sea-going merchants and their passengers. Many of them are not whom they seem to be and only reveal their true selves once a sunken kingdom from the bottom sea launches an attack against the travelers.
Adrian Cole transports a group of explorers to a Lovecraftian nether world of no return. Or is there, if one is courageous enough?
Milton Davis introduces us to a young man, barely past boyhood, who has to brave great dangers on his own to seek the help of ancient allies who may no longer exist.
John C. Hocking regales with the plight of a young archivist who is forced at swordpoint to travel into a parallel world full of horrors from a time long forgotten.
David C. Smith's courageous rebels under the leadership of an undying warrior must form an alliance with an ancient race to overthrow murderous usurpers, along with their necromantic masters, who are hell-bent on destroying their kingdom in an insane attempt to conquer the world.
S.E Lindberg gives us a distant world where two alien sisters, who were created in the image of man, wage a war against each other to determine the future of their world.
J. Thomas Howard reveals the harsh realities of ancient Eire, Sam Hain, and the war between the Fomorians and Tuatha Dé Danann.
