CASIA aka The Dave Casciano Company aka Attack International Wargaming Association, put out two books in 1977/1978. The first called Book of the Dragons and the second called Interfax of Spells and Black Magic.

I'm hoping there may be someone out there who has one of these, who can confirm their existance.

Thanks, Shane.

I didn't know about the Necromancy bit.
That now raises the question.. does anyone know anything anout Tower of Elbrith?

So there are three publications ATM...

Book of the Dragons (1977)
The Interfax of Spells, Necromancy and Black Magic (1978)
Tower of Elbrith (1979)

Does anyone know if they put out any other publications?
Can anyone help me put a picture to any of these?

Faithfully,
Ian

Thanks, M.

In London ATM twiddling my thumbs for a few days. I'll chase that up at the weekend.

In the mean time, thanks to Frank, I have put Casciano's page up.

Don't any of you guys go selling anything rare while I'm aware :D

That's what I get for browsing to check whether tfm dug out any other "interesting" items in his ongoing 100% successful win spree. ;)

(At least the $275 paid for "Two Towers" gave me a smile. :))

I missed that one too :(  Although, I do know one Acaeum member that has a copy of the book as well so its good to see that these do show up every once in a while.

Been a few copies of Infernax through the pipe since this thread started.  Also a few copis of Book of the Dragons.  Could also note that Tower of Elbrith and Thieve's Quarter do exist as well.

Hi. Just registered for this site. Not sure how it works. Anyway, I have "Dawn World" by Dave Casciano and such, c. 1980. Just to let you know.

Is Dawn World copyright Dave Casciano?  I know its by Morrison (who did Thieves Quarter and Tower of Elbrith) but I thought it was published by someone else
