Victorian adventure -- an era full of top-hatted intrigue, dirigibles galore, all-too-demure sensuality and completely unironic classism. Now there's an antidote: Dispatches from Wondermark Manor, a rollicking, absurd, completely ridiculous yarn from the author of the celebrated comic strip "Wondermark."

Taking the tropes of Conan Doyle-style

Overview

Victorian adventure -- an era full of top-hatted intrigue, dirigibles galore, all-too-demure sensuality and completely unironic classism. Now there's an antidote: Dispatches from Wondermark Manor, a rollicking, absurd, completely ridiculous yarn from the author of the celebrated comic strip "Wondermark."

Taking the tropes of Conan Doyle-style adventure fiction and ramping them way over the top, Malki's story brings together:

  • Ghosts (of course)
  • Airships (of course)
  • High society intrigue
  • Old men in salt barrels
  • Horses that cannot fly
  • Frightful moustaches aplenty
  • Cheese handling as an artform
  • General bad decisions, and
  • Casual mass murder

All in a stunningly-designed package evocative of the grandest pulp style. Praised by many for its strangeness and wonder, Dispatches from Wondermark Manor is offered here for the very first time in a complete omnibus edition, including all three volumes of the novels (originally available only as long out-of-print chapbooks)plus a separate prologue from Malki's book Beards of our Forefathers, plus all-new hand-drawn maps of the locations in the story.

Buy with confidence! This edition is guaranteed at least 48% opium-free by law.
