Bards of Nemeton Showcases Talents of Meirion Jones


Meirion Jones is a name you may not be entirely familiar with. The thing is, Jones is working to become something more of a household name, with a little help from Markosia and a new book called Christopher Marlowe: The Bards of Nemeton. In May 1593, Marlowe was stabbed to death in mysterious circumstances, but he is snatched from the jaws of death and sent hurtling through time and space on a quest to save mankind. If it sounds a little different than the history you're used to, you should probably check out this book.

A war is raging and the stakes are impossibly high. To the victors go the spoils of the ultimate natural resource – mankind’s sub-conscious – and the power to remake reality on a whim, to become Godlike. One man is caught in the middle … and he’s not happy about it. That man is one of Britain’s greatest playwrights; Christopher Marlowe.

“A brilliant concept executed with real wit and style," says Mike Dowling. "It’s a fantastically sustained act of the imagination. The art sings on every page telling a dense, audacious story: it’s a time spanning epic; a metaphysical battle with past present and future at stake. An out of nowhere explosion of great comic art.”

Copies of the book are available through Markosia or online at Amazon. You can also buy a specially signed copy from http://www.bardsofnemeton.com/buy-the-book/. Full press release below.
