The Fiddleback Trilogy by Michael A. Stackpole:

This trilogy of techno-horror novels by New York Times bestselling author Michael A. Stackpole is finally available in one set. These novels, which were originally written to support GDW's 'Dark Conspiracy' game line, have aptly been described as "the books that Phil Dick and H.P. Lovecraft would have produced from a collaboration" because of the combination of a dark future with terrifying monsters. Packed with action and spiced with a touch of humor, these novels can be read alone or combined into one long pulse-pounding saga of a handful of stalwart individuals fighting against ancient horrors intent on the conquest of the Earth.

Michael A. Stackpole is the award-winning game designer who is best known for novels set in the BattleTech=AE universe and his New York Times bestselling Star Wars=AE X-wing series. Fans of those books will find in the Fiddleback Trilogy Stackpole's signature fast-paced style and page-turning delivery, making these books a must!

A Gathering Evil; Evil Ascending; and Evil Triumphant (what a set of names, yes?). Originally sold by GDW for $5 each, Flying Buffalo is offering all three for $10. (Plus the usual $3 postage & handling of course). We're not going to reprint these, so get them before we sell out.

MERCENARIES, SPIES & PRIVATE EYES: Designed by Michael Stackpole.

Unfortunately we are out of the "boxed set" but you can get the rulebook for only $9.95

LOST WORLDS COMBAT PICTURE BOOKS: Many of you may remember the lost worlds books by Nova Games from years ago. These books are a DICELESS fantasy combat system. Each player has a book, and you play by giving your book to your opponent, who reciprocates. You each pick a maneuver from your list of options, and tell the other player a page number. You each turn to the specified page number, and see what the other person is doing. For instance, you may choose to lunge at me, while I choose a side swing. When I turn to your page, I see you lunging at me, and when you turn to my page, you see yourself getting a hit on me. After I take a specified number of hits, I have lost the combat. Itís very easy (the complete rules are included on each book) and very quick.
Why am I telling you about Lost Worlds? Because there were some licensed "BattleTech" books done in the Lost Worlds patented system. We have what we believe is the remaining stock of these books, and when they run out, they will not be reprinted. Sadly, we are all out of all of them except the Rifleman and Locust while they last - $4 each.
You will need at least two books to play (you can play two of the same against each other). To order the Rifleman:

To order just the Locust:
