    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    And here is the brief summary:

    *~*~*~*

    Unbowed, Unbroken, Unrelenting - An Antihero Anthology

    Sixteen tales of fantasy, horror, suspense, and drama, with some rather unconventional heroes.

    Discover the truth at the end of the world, escape from labs buried deep within the earth, and never stop running from the creatures hiding in the shadows.

    Trade destruction in a world where the Cold War heated up fast, dance until last call in a club without time, follow a master assassin on one last mission for redemption.

    The following stories contain zombies, monsters, angels, demons, and heroes of an altogether unsavory nature.

    Unbowed, Unbroken, Unrelenting: Antiheroes

    The first anthology from DLP.

    *~*~*~*​

    Featuring some of your favourite and most beloved DLP writers:

    Silens Cursor

    Heh. Depends how you view this motherfucker. We first envisioned it in 2010, so it's been the best part of 3 years from concept to design to prototype.

    Paperback is about 3 weeks away, give or take a week if the proof has any issues.

    It'll look might purty, let me tell you. A fine tome for any bookshelf.

    If you take the original plan then yes. But after you took responsibility for this one it took what? 8 months. Pretty fast in my opinion.

    Anyway, will there ever be a hardbound copy? Or you'll just wait and see if it can go that for?

    Awesome ;D

    This thread is slightly hidden, though - maybe it merits a line in announcements above, even - cause, you know, a first step for a couple of authors and a big leap for DLP ;D.

    Great. Simply great.

    While that's how you spell my real name, it's not how you spell my user name. ;)

    Also, Aivaras Žiūkas doesn't show properly on Amazon, at least to me. Instead I see Aivaras !i!kas.

    Yeah, I sent Joe an email already, and glimpsed of a wild guessing theory in IRC about what strange cursewords are hidden in my surname ;D

    Will wait on the paperback given my technological backwardness and preference of a good book in hand but congratz guys, each and everyone of you deserve a pint and I daresay Joe wants his bottle of Scotch too.

    Recommended it to friends who I know are looking for something new to read, fingers crossed we do well! I say we, I mean you. Absolutely amazing stuff, congratulations all.

    I plan to pick up a couple of copies of the paperback when it comes out, as I tend to do with anthologies in which I'm published. Nice work, Joe. We (and by that I mean the DLP community writ large) are in your debt for all your hard work on this.
