Agharta: The Hollow Earth

 A PC video game that was set in the Hollow Earth from 2000.
Agharta is a bizarre action-adventure game packed with some unique and breathtaking graphics developed with some amazing 3D engine that simulates very real looking fogs, light effects and glows. The action sequences are very childish but strategic, which can be played easily. You play the role of a courageous pilot working in Tibet and whose services have been hired by a young woman to find his mysteriously disappeared father, who went on an expedition to North Pole. On your way, your plane gets stuck into a storm and crashes somewhere in North Pole. Thus begins your long action packed adventure along with you faithful pet dog as your sidekick to aid you in solving different puzzles and difficulties as and when required. The music and sound effects in Agharta are very atmospheric and add extra fun while you play.

Hollow World

Hollow World is a book that Michael J. Sullivan's publisher passed on so he went ahead without them and is publishing it on his own. Not even two days after the Kickstarter launched the project was supported.

Ellis Rogers is running out of time, but what  does that matter to a man with his own time machine.
A Detroit factory worker who’d always played it safe and done the right thing is rewarded with unemployment, a loveless marriage, and a terminal illness. Now with nothing to lose, he’s willing to take an insane gamble. It’s in his garage. He’s worked on it for months. All he has to do is press the red button, but he can only go forward with no control over how far. If it works he’ll face a world that challenges his understanding of what it means to be human, what it takes to love, and the cost of paradise. If he’s lucky, if he survives, he could find more than a cure for his illness, he might find what everyone has been searching for since time began.

Weirding Willows - Where Dwell Monsters part 1 and 2

 The Weirding Willows, by Dave Elliot.

In the spirit of the Wold Newton Family, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Fables we have this indy comic. Here is Elliot's description:

In the World of WEIRDING WILLOWS Frankenstein's Monster is called DÄMON. This is a name that he has given himself and is the German word for Demon. Damon sincerely believes he is evil and that his creation was of evil intent, even though he does not feel evil.

Yes, he acknowledges he has killed and he knows those volatile emotions are still raging within him, but he is trying to keep himself under control. Much of the source of his rage was from his feelings of being alone.

After the death of Doctor Frankenstein, Damon wandered off into the arctic wastes expecting his life to end. Instead he found a cave that led him down into what he believed was the center of the Earth. This "cave" was actually one of three areas on the Earth where the walls between the dimensions meet and you can cross between the worlds.

Damon crossed over, thinking he was in the center of our world. But it wasn't. It was somewhere else. A world known by other names such as Pellucidar or Hollow Earth. Here amongst the creatures and dinosaurs Damon found a new home and contentment.

Now he has realized there are others who are every bit as different as he is and, at least for now, he has some friends.

In this story we find ALICE in Hollow Earth looking for Damon. Damon splits his time between Hollow Earth and our world for he had made a bond with the creatures there. There are those there he deems friends and cares for very much.

But never in his 100 years in this world did Damon think there was someone else from our world living there as well...
