In the Air, the Earth, and the Sea, the World Burned.
Erupting in a land pregnant with conflict, The War to End All Wars blazed from 1914 to 1918, spreading until no continent escaped the touch of its flame. By the day of armistice, no civilization in history had witnessed more death, destruction, and carnage in such a short time.
Travel the Ghost Road. Part the Veil.
Curated by historian Coy Hall, Death’s Other Kingdom collects eight frightening tales from this baptismal storm of steel. Within these pages, horrors of the supernatural bleed into the terrors of war. In this ritual of violence, humans have never been more vulnerable.
