COVER REVEAL: The Night Clave

So, as you know (stares into camera) we publish the tie-in novels for Monte Cook GamesNumenera and The Strange RPGs. The RPGs are known for their immersive storytelling, future tech that lives by the Arthur C Clarke quote “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
