I am a HUGE fan of The Dread Thingnomicon from Raging Swan Press. I went ahead and ordered The Dread Thingnomicon in hardcover, after snagging the PDF on sale, it is that good in my opinion. The Dread Thingnomicon is over 475 pages in length, and the first 50 pages are available for free to preview on the sales page (20 of which literally are the Table of Contents). Yes, The Dread Thingnomicon is simply huge ;)
The Dread Thingnomicon is normally 27.95 in PDF, but until tomorrow morning it is marked down to 16.77. Yes, this is not a cheap offering by any stretch of the imagination, but you get what you pay for and The Dread Thingnomicon is the rare beast that I feel comfortable paying that price for a PDF.
