Today at Lili's Lair we have decided to finish off our Monolith Graphics/Joseph Vargo gothique extaorinaire with their books.
Yes, Joseph Vargo also writes. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be.
His writing is not only found in his books. Joseph Vargo also writes the snippets of spook in Nox Arcana's Songs, as well as the "puzzles" one gets to poke about with on each CD. Ahh, the sweet torture of figuring out a mystery.
Sorry, back to the books. If you read my interview with Joseph Vargo, you would know he has been writing for quite a while. If you have not read the interview, shame on you my morbid masses. Go do so now, or I will punish you most severely.
All of Monolith Graphic's books are a work of art and a must-buy for the collector. Let's take a further look at what Monolith Graphics has to offer.
