The Eternal Dungeon

An award-winning speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. Dusk Peterson's Eternal Dungeon series.


Devilc: In Darkness Chained. Prisoners always play games with their Seekers, but the Eternal Dungeon has never seen a player this adroit, nor a game played at this level. (Includes major spoilers for Rebirth and Transformation.)

"'Mr. Smith, may I ask a question?' the prisoner whispered. But before Layle could answer, the prisoner continued, 'Would you like it better if I moaned?'"

Devilc: The Story of a Mouse. (Includes major spoilers for The Breaking.)

"The Seeker with the pretty eyes and gentle voice had taken notice of her this morning when she went out in her blouse and best pinafore best Mipese lamb's cashmere in softest gray that she had saved to buy, now hopelessly ruined unless she dyed it black . . ."

Telepwen: Fall Together. (Includes major spoilers for Rebirth.)

"While most Vovimian racks were in the design of butterflies or birds or even that one in Wealdside in the form of a faerie, this one was different. A forgotten artist of twisted vision had crafted a wilting Tree of Life, her roots and nearly-bare branches sprawling to cradle the prisoner who was trying so very hard not to tremble."


Gregory Welter: Split (alternate cover version).
