Overview

NOT THE END OF THE STORY

The lore of Averoigne didn't end with Clark Ashton Smith. Over the decades other writers, fascinated by this "Lovecraft country" of medieval France, added their own contributions. For the first time collected together into one volume, you can read over two dozen poems and stories of Averoigne (including some never before published) by Mythos authors like DJ Tyrer, Richard Tierney, Brian McNaughton, Michael Minnis, and James Chambers. Revisit Vyônes and Périgon, meet Luc le Chaudronnier and Azédarac once again, as tales of harpies and werewolves, ogres and giants, changelings and cockatrices await you, including:

THE ORACLE OF SADOQUA by Ron Hilger

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Delicious writing that transcends mere pastiche and reads like a continuation of Clark Ashton Smith's Averoigne tales."
- Amazon

"Like [Clark Ashton Smith's] own stories of Averoigne, these stories fall between medieval chronicle and fairy tale, between bitter irony and ribald jest. But while the writers of these stories have respected the boundaries set by Smith, within those boundaries they have exercised their freedom to tell their tales in their own way. And their tales are the better for it."
- Gary Myers, author of "The House of the Worm"
