The name of Brian McNaughton may not be familiar to that many people, but he is the author (among various other books) of THE THRONE OF BONES, a World Fantasy Award winner and a book I regard as one of the very best single author collections of recent times. Its linked stories are dark fantasy of a very high order, literate, decadent, horrific, fantastic and funny, paying homage to the likes of Clark Ashton Smith and his Weird Tales peers while remaining deeply original.
I was saddened to hear the news today that McNaughton died last month.

Oh shit, Gabriel. I only read The Throne of Bones, which I loved, and I'm saddened to hear about Mr McNaughton's demise.

That's a shame. The best stories in Throne were quite wonderful.
