Fear In a Handful of Dust
Welcome to the
Book of Souls 
. Brought to you by fellow devotees of thedark lands of Ravenloft, this netbook is a gift to all who find themselvesdrawn into the Demiplane of Dread.In his poem
The Wastelands 
, T.S. Eliot said, “I will show you fear in ahandful of dust.” He was right, of course. Something as simple as a handfulof dust can hold fear… and horror. Dust is the poison slipped into the wineof a politicians rival. Dust is the ashes of the woman who immolates herselfwhen her lover turns to an other. Dust is the remains of the vampirescattering on the winds. Dust is that which drifts from the cerements of thedead. Dust is soil without life promising famine.The worlds of Ravenloft are our handfuls of dust. Ever since the first handfulthe Kargat brought, we came and added our own dust. An island of dust, acontinent, a world, two worlds built of the dusts that bear fear and horror. Asthe Demiplane of Dread and the Gothic Earth grow, we add more and moreto our wasteland of dust.This is our handful of dust. Let us show you fear within it.
Chris Nichols,
Kargatane
