Information about the author.
Darrell Schweitzer, author of The Mask of the Sorcerer and editor of Weird Tales collaborates with macabre artist-writer Jason Van Hollander on a series of remarkable fantasies, variously grotesque, horrific, ethereal, and darkly comic. Several of these form a cycle set in as-yet undiscovered countries where the common men have thrown down the gods and decadent nobles reach new heights of ecstasy and terror with the drug hanquil. You’ll also encounter a wrenching yet romantic ghost story set in the American Southwest, an intimately personal tale of the Cthulhu Mythos and the lingering legacy of Dunwich; plus a dance of death; and a house haunted by the terror of eternal life.
Here are all the stories Schweitzer and Van Hollander have written together, a unique blending which makes these two the most successful collaborative team since Burke and Hare.
