reviews one of my all-time favorite story collections: THE THRONE OF BONES by the late Brian McNaughton. Click here to read the BG review.

This gloriously gruesome book—which features everything you could ever want to know (and more) about corpse-munching ghouls—won the World Fantasy Award for best collection in 1998.

McNaughton’s lurid tales blend weird horror with sword-and-sorcery, drawing comparisons to the work of Clark Ashton Smith and Robert E. Howard. The interlinked stories (and one novella) in this collection are wholly original, dark as sin, and completely fascinating. Brian McNaughton passed away in 2004, but dark fantasy fans will be discovering this book with macabre delight for many generations.

The book is available in softcover and Kindle versions right here.
