Night-Black Sorcery and the Wrath of Malevolent Gods

More than any writer since Robert E. Howard, Keith Taylor has a unique ability to evoke sheer terror amid the remote and haunted reaches of the ancient world. His tales of Kamose, archpriest of Anubis, the Egyptian god of death have been among the most popular features of the modern Weird Tales magazine. Kamose… awesomely powerful, yet scarred, cursed, and nearly driven mad by forces even he cannot control for long.… Here are eleven of his supernatural adventures, two of them published for the first time.

"…convincing and authentic, revealing a deep knowledge of the history and cultures of the period." —The Encyclopedia of Fantasy

Keith Taylor's fiction won two Ditmar Awards, and was nominated for four more, as well as for two Aurealis Awards.
