Laird Barron is one of the modern masters of horror. James McGlothlin reviewed his latest collection for us, The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All, saying, “Barron is still one of the leading horror voices of today… I highly recommend it!”
Barron’s also been highly prolific, releasing a steady steam of books in the last few years — including first novel The Croning, the novella X’s For Eyes, and the first volume of the new Year’s Best Weird Fiction anthology series from Undertow Publications.
His latest is a promising-looking novella that looks closer to a modern thriller than anything else. Click the back cover above for the book description. The first of the Nanashi Novellas, Man With No Name was called “Bold, complex, and absolutely riveting” by Jonathan Maberry. It arrives this week from JournalStone.
