Necromancies And Netherworldsby Darrell Schweitzer
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.

Darrell Schweitzer is a very good writer, and Jason van Hollander is a very good artist. They have collaborated on all the stories in this book, and van Hollander has illustrated them as well. Stories range from contemporary to alternate world, but they are all quite strange and excellent. Highly recommended.
