NOMMO Awards shortlist 2018!


Quest: He awakes in a cavern. A single shaft of light. A strange and dangerous world. No memory and no guide, except for a lone voice urging him on, ever forward. Toward the demon.
And all the while, death lurks behind, stalking …

The Sign of the Shining Beast: At night I dream, the endless sleep, and it always ends as it begins.
Here lies the twilight realm of forgotten tomorrows. It is what was … could be … never was.

Two tales. Two journeys. A single, fractured dream.

A new dark fantasy series, marrying storytelling with vivid artwork to create an experience like no other.


“… a breathless ride into the realms of spirit, wonder, and terror. The words are sharp, the images sublime, the experience unique … not to be missed.”
Ian Whates - Author of Pelquin's Comet


“Cockshaw's visually haunting images perfectly suit Malan's enthralling storytelling.”
Jay Johnstone - Tolkien Artist


“Epic and haunting. Viscerally realised ...”
Ricardo Pinto - Author of The Stone Dance of the Chameleon trilogy


“I haven’t encountered anything quite like it before … a darkly epic and nightmare voyage. A quite extraordinary feat of the imagination.”
Jim Burns - SF & Fantasy artist
