The Book of the Black Sun II: The Book Collector by G. Thomas

In 2002 G. W. Thomas published the first volume in this series, featuring Cthulhu Mythos tales that hinted at a world filled with spinning gateways that lead to terror. Finally, he has returned with the sequel collection that fans have begged for: the Book Collector. Set in the same world as the previous book, the tales of the Book Collector are fast-paced Noir Mysteries as well as horror stories. The Book Collector works for Telford, a mysterious figure who rents arcane tomes to the wealthy. When those books don't come back the Book Collector has 24 hours to retrieve them, and he will receive half the rental fee, a cool million. The book in question... The Book of the Black Sun. But the clients aren't playing and bullets and magic are often part of the job. This book features all the Book Collector stories (so far!) including "Goon Job" and "Merlin's Bane" which appeared on the horror podcast, Pseudopod. Also included amongst the eleven tales are "Hag-Seed" and "Shades of Auburn", two never before published novellas.

The Book of the Black Sun: Eldir by G. W. Thomas

One of eight quartets from G. W. Thomas' The Book of the Black Sun (above), a collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction. Each quartet is made up of a micro fiction piece of 100 words or less, a flash story 300-500 words, a short story of around 2000 and a longer one of 3000-5000 words. This one features "Cat House", "Helping Hand", "The Suit" and "There Was an Old Lady". James Ambuehl wrote: "There Was An Old Lady" is a strange piece, owing an obvious, if unexpected debt, to Mother Goose nursery rhymes, while "The Man Who Would Be King" follows in the footsteps of the Maine Man -- successfully wedding King's themes to the Master, HPL's. Yet the WAY they emulate their models, especially in the former, is ingenious! Jim Lee wrote in Scavenger's Newsletter #175: "...But the better Lovecraft pastiche here ["There Was An Old Lady"] is probably the one by G. W. Thomas, where a carny recruiter blunders into the "hills west of Arkham" and ends up dictating an audio cassette account of his nightmare adventure just before...well, before the expected (yet fairly effective) ending."
