Books Description:

Elminster a encore accompli de grandes oeuvres. Mais cette fois, il en a souffert. Prisonnier des Abysses, incapable d'appeler au secours, le voilà tombé entre les griffes de Nergal, un démon ambitieux qui entend bien lui arracher les secrets de sa magie. Et c'est une abominable souffrance mentale et physique qui attend Elminster s'il continue à résister au démon. D'authentiques confessions en faux souvenirs, Elminster entraîne Nergal dans un jeu complexe et cruel dont le vainqueur, au bout du compte, sera le plus malin des deux adversaires. Le seul ennui, c'est que le démon se révèle bien plus futé que prévu !

Books Description:

La terreur, l'horreur, l'informe du rêve, Lovecraft ne les éveille pas pour jouer. Il sait seulement que tout cela nous en disposons déjà, depuis l'enfance, ou dans l'inquiétude du quotidien. Il en est juste un formidable amplificateur. Et c'est ainsi qu'il est temps de le lire : parce que s'y joue définitivement une bascule majeure de la littérature. François Bon Né aux États-Unis en 1890 et mort en 1937, Howard Phillips Lovecraft est considéré aujourd'hui comme l'un des écrivains d'horreur et de science-fiction les plus importants du XXe siècle. " Howard Phillips Lovecraft constitue un exemple pour tous ceux qui souhaitent apprendre à rater leur vie, et éventuellement à réussir leur œuvre. " Michel Houellebecq

Books Description:

Dread Trident examines the rise of imaginary worlds in tabletop role-playing games (TRPGs), such as Dungeons and Dragons. With the combination of analog and digital mechanisms, from traditional books to the internet, new ways of engaging the fantastic have become increasingly realized in recent years, and this book seeks an understanding of this phenomenon within the discourses of trans- and posthumanism, as well as within a gameist mode. The book explores a number of case studies of foundational TRPGs. Dungeons and Dragons provides an illustration of pulp-driven fantasy, particularly in the way it harmonizes its many campaign settings into a functional multiverse. It also acts as a supreme example of depth within its archive of official and unofficial published material, stretching back four decades. Warhammer 40k and the Worlds of Darkness present an interesting dialogue between Gothic and science-fantasy elements. The Mythos of HP Lovecraft also features prominently in the book as an example of a realized world that spans the literary and gameist modes. Realized fantasy worlds are becoming ever more popular as a way of experiencing a touch of the magical within modern life. Reworking Northrop Frye's definition of irony, Dread Trident theorizes an ironic understanding of this process and in particular of its embodied forms.
