Excerpted from a sidebar helping GM's navigate a demon-driven literary conversation in the Salacious Salon of Sxiploi, a sublevel in What Ho, Frog Demons (the fourth and forthcoming installment in the Slumbering Ursine Dunes series).

10. The Penultimate Tome That Cannot Be Spoken Of.

Perfect as a gift for that special someone in your life of Unspeakable Evil.
