THE CHRONICLE OF SWORD & SAND: Baghdad, AD 790. Caliph Harun al-Rashid presides over the greatest metropolis on Earth, ruler of an empire that stretches from China to Byzantium. His exploits will be recorded in Alf Layla or, as we know it, The Book of One Thousand and One Nights. However, The Thousand and One Nights are silent on the deeds and adventures that befell two of the Caliph's subjects: the renowned scholar Dabir ibn Kahlil, and his shield and right hand, Asim el Abbas. For their story, we must turn to the Chronicle of Sand and Sword...

THE BONES OF THE OLD ONES: Amid the worst winter in living memory, a Persian noblewoman seeks sanctuary at the home of the scholar Dabir and his friend the swordsman Asim. She flees from a cabal of magi that ensorcelled her in their quest to track down ancient artifacts of tremendous power – the Bones of the Old Ones. Caught between the magi and a vengeful spirit intent on sheathing the world in ice, Dabir and Asim will have no choice but to ally with a deadly enemy...
