Tome of Blood is a collection of fourteen short stories and three poems by Hamish Paul Wilson created in the spring of 2008 and uploaded onto the Internet on April 25, 2008. The first story written How Much Time has Passed was written and uploaded weeks before the rest were uploaded. It is the largest collection of Blood fan fiction ever written, though many of them are short. More stories were added later, from Caleb Meets the Headless Thompson Gunner onward.

[edit] Illustrations

The illustrations for Tome of Blood were originally drawn on paper by Hamish Wilson on April 26, 2008. They were then scanned onto a computer where they were digitally edited by Malcolm Wilson to create the current images. The Man in the Dark Hat depicts Caleb standing in front of the urban skyline of New Town, while Lost in the Wastes has Caleb looking for the other Chosen after he got lost from them in How Much Time has Passed. Both image's show Caleb's face being shrouded by the shadow cast by his hat, and with his hands in his trench coat pockets.
