– Images and downloads

When I was young, if I bought a fantasy book and it had no map, a small part of me was sad (I have since learnt to cope with these disappointments).

I could have published these Tales of The Lesser Evil without maps, but the truth of the matter is I still find them useful, comforting, familiar-yet-exciting-and-new but, perhaps above all else, I enjoy making them.

This is the small painting of Eastsea, visible in the map of The Northern Isthmus, an “in-progress” photo, to show the scale and also the level of work which went into the maps.

The Horned Sea (also known by a plethora of other names, something that can be missing from fantasy literature), covers a vast area and spans many city-states and cultures.

A part of this area is the Northern Isthmus. This is a principal setting for several of the introductory tales and will be crucial to the later novels. The city of Eastsea, its eight still-standing towers dominating the skyline, is the most populous city of the Isthmus.
