"The Strange is the recursion-spanning RPG from Monte Cook Games, publishers of Numenera. In The Strange, recursions -- limited pocket dimensions with their own laws of reality -- are seeded from human fiction and mythology. A recursor might discover Atlantis, Oz, the Victorian London of Sherlock Holmes, and places even more bizarre. You can go absolutely anywhere, to any fictional setting or imaginary realm.
This all-new collection gives you everything you need for a complete campaign across the Chaosphere. And because The Strange uses the Cypher System rules, Numenera players can translate smoothly into this new setting."

Usual caveat - The main reason I know about this offer is because I'm on the list to get this stuff free if I want it. In this case I suspect I'll take a look at the ideas rather than the system and won't end up playing it, but it seems a reasonable deal. If I think these are bad deals I'll say so.
