Fallen London and the Cartography of a Thousand Stories

Fallen London, the wonderfully dark and deliciously devilish Victorian Gothic metropolis of Failbetter Games, and also the intricate urban setting of both Fallen London and Sunless Sea will be a part of the Virtual Cities atlas!* What's more, the incredibly generous people of Failbetter Games shall be helping me and Maria Kallikaki map this fabulously intricate imaginary city, capture and re-interpret its aesthetic essence, and make spatial sense of its wondrous textual nature. 

Navigating the greatest harbour of the Unterzee on more time, studying stolen London, revisiting the famed Echo Bazaar, and digging through voluminous libraries for geographical insights is bound to lead to one of the most unique entries of the atlas. So, thank you Failbetter Games, and thank you everyone for supporting this book of ours!


*Yes, please do consider this update an announcement.
