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.
