NOT THE END OF THE STORY!

The lore of Averoigne didn’t end with Clark Ashton Smith. Over the decades other writers, fascinated by this “Lovecraft country” of medieval France, added their own contributions in tales spanning history from the Roman era to modern day. Revisit Vyônes and Périgon, meet Luc le Chaudronnier and Azédarac once again, as old foes like the Gargoyles of Vyônes Cathedral and the Colossus of Ylourgne return to wreck more havoc.

But new threats are always lurking in the shadows – join the peasantry of Averoigne in their struggles to survive in their cursed, monster-haunted homeland as they face dangers ranging from ghostly cats to man-eating ogres. Tales of harpies and werewolves, witches and necromancers, changelings and cockatrices await you, as well as adversaries of the more mundane variety like fanatical Inquisitors, heretical cults, and druids serving dark gods.

For the first time collected together into one volume, you can read over two dozen poems and stories of Averoigne (including some never before published) by Mythos authors like DJ Tyrer, Ron Hilger, Richard Tierney, Brian McNaughton, Michael Minnis, and James Chambers, including:
