Victorian adventure — an era full of top-hatted intrigue, dirigibles galore, all-too-demure sensuality and completely un-ironic classism. Altogether too normal. Now there’s an antidote: Dispatches from Wondermark Manor, a rollicking, absurd, completely ridiculous humor novel from the author of the comic strip “Wondermark.”
Taking the tropes of Conan Doyle-style adventure fiction and ramping them way over the top, this tale brings together:
• Ghosts (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 in a 500-page omnibus edition, including all three volumes of the novels (previously available only as long-out-of-print chapbooks) plus a separate prologue (originally published in the book Beards of our Forefathers), as well as three brand-new hand-drawn maps of the locales in the story.
