The multiverse is ending; only villains can stop it…
The Book of Thrice Dead is a multiverse apocalypse epic that follows three legendary anti-heroes: the serial killer Craig Smiley, the mad weapons-scientist Dr. Monaghan, and the dark prophet known as The Prince. Spread across the ravaged multiverse, these three titans must ultimately join forces to face an evil greater than themselves that will bring about an end not just to one universe but to all.
Described as “Lovecraftian and Barker-esque” by Splatterpunk Award Nominated author Steve Stred and as “a totally original concept” by Bram Stoker Award Nominated author Ross Jeffery, The Book of Thrice Dead will take you across the multiverse into dark realities beyond our own, and on a journey of redemption that will challenge everything you know.
The covers have all been created by the incredibly talented Daniel Soule.
