Brian McNaughton

Brian McNaughton

Brian McNaughton (1935–2004) was an American writer of horror and fantasy fiction who mixed sex, satire and black humour. He also wrote thrillers.

Brian McNaughton's work includes literary nods to writers such as H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith and Bram Stoker. His story "The Return of the Colossus" is a sequel to Smith's "The Colossus of Ylourgne" set during World War I; while the title of "To My Dear Friend Hommy-Beg" echoes Stoker's dedication for Dracula.

The Throne of Bones, a collection of horror-fantasy stories about ghouls set in an opulent, decadent world reminiscent of Clark Ashton Smith, won the World Fantasy Award for best collection and was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction Collection.
