Product description

WINNER OF THE 2013 BRAM STOKER AWARD FOR SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT IN FICTION COLLECTION Over the course of two award-winning collections and a critically acclaimed novel, The Croning, Laird Barron has arisen as one of the strongest and most original literary voices in modern horror and the dark fantastic. Melding supernatural horror with hardboiled noir, espionage, and a scientific backbone, Barron's stories have garnered critical acclaim and have been reprinted in numerous year's best anthologies and nominated for multiple awards, including the Crawford, International Horror Guild, Shirley Jackson, Theodore Sturgeon, and World Fantasy awards. Barron returns with his third collection, The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All. Collecting interlinking tales of sublime cosmic horror, including "Blackwood's Baby," "The Carrion Gods in Their Heaven," and "The Men from Porlock," The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All delivers enough spine-chilling horror to satisfy even the most jaded reader.

Review quote

"Tremendous ... Particularly affecting and effective is the constant sense of an occult force that swells behind the action of the stories." --Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual "Relentlessly readable, highly atmospheric, sharply and often arrestingly written--Barron's prose style resembles, by turns, a high-flown Jim Thompson mixed with a pulp Barry Hannah" --Slate "The scariest writer on the planet has to be Laird Barron." --Paul Goat Allen, The Barnes & Noble Book Blog "Laird Barron has, in a remarkably short period of time, emerged as one of the leading writers of contemporary weird fiction." --S. T. Joshi "You could say these stories are what happens when Jack London and Zane Grey go drinking with William Hope Hodgson and Algernon Blackwood. But what they really are is Laird Barron, and they are terrifying and awe-inspiring. If you haven't yet tried his work, this is a great place to start." --Brian Keene, author of The Rising
