Episode 5 ‘.220 Swift’ Part 2 – Machen to Howard to Wagner

For an in depth reading of Howard’s Men of the Shadows and the pictish connection to Machen’s work I suggest Nameless Tribes: Robert E. Howard’s Anthropological World-Building in “Men of the Shadows” by Jeffrey Shanks in Skelos 1 : The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy.

As a further connection to Brandon and Bran Mak Morn we see Wagner using the same Persephone motif in his Mak Morn pastiche Legion from the Shadows in the Chapter entitled Proserpina and Dis.

Check the blog out all this month as I’m working on my special October Project, covering The Year’s Best Horror Stories Series VIII edited by Wagner.
