The Hyperfunctional Megadungeon for the 21st Century

Infinite broken night. Milky alien moons. Wavering demons of gold. Held in this jail of immortal threats are three perfect sisters... 

Maze of the Blue Medusa is a dungeon. Maze of the Blue Medusa is art. Maze of the Blue Medusa works with your favorite fantasy tabletop RPGs. And Maze of the Blue Medusa is the madly innovative game book from the award-winning Zak Sabbath of A Red & Pleasant Land and Patrick Stuart of Deep Carbon Observatory. Lethal gardens, soul-rending art galleries, infernal machines—Maze of the Blue Medusa reads like the poetic nightmare of civilizations rotted to time, and plays like a puzzle-box built from risk and weird spectacle. Art by Zak Sabbath; text by Patrick Stuart and Zak Sabbath. 

Maze of the Blue Medusa is a 7.5" wide and 9" tall Smyth sewn hardcover book that features: 288 full-cover pages; full-color endpapers featuring tables, maps, and art; foil stamping on the front cover and spine; hand-tipped debossed images on the front and back covers; a jet black cloth cover; FSC-certified interior paper stock; and a bookmark ribbon.

"Nothing like Maze of the Blue Medusa has come along before. Each element is near perfect. And I dare hazard to say that the entire thing is greater still than the sum of its parts... Maze of the Blue Medusa is in some higher tier than The Best."
—Bryce Lynch, TenFootPole

"One of the biggest releases, I think, in the history of D&D publishing."
—Ben Milton, Questing Beast

"Let's put it this way: it's a dungeon you actually want to read the prose in. To grown adults."
—Kenneth Hite

"It kicks Wizards of the Coast's books' ass in every department and it's made by 3 people."

"After 36+ years of gaming, precious little seems 'new' to me. This feels new."
—Tim Brannan, The Other Side

—China Miéville

"Clearly jam-packed with awesome ideas."
—Monte Cook

"It's definitely one of the best looking books ever published for the OSR, or for RPGs in general."
—Andy Markham

"... this work achieves what Tegel Manor attempted and nobody else has gotten very close to since: an intricate, interacting environ where something new and interesting happens around every corner that still attends to the practical issues of trying to DM such a beast."
—Jeff Rients
