The variety of tone, topic, type, and content material mirrored during this beneficiant quantity is little short of awesome. The identify tale is a story inside of a story of dragons and knights and is remarkable for its wit and verbal inventiveness. "The hurricane Door" makes use of The Tibetan booklet of the lifeless to forge a novel new method of the normal zombie tale. "The bad Conflagration on the Quiller's Mint" deals a quick, self reliant glimpse into the history of Williams's Shadowmarch sequence. "Ants" presents an ironic account of what can ensue while a wedding is going irrevocably wrong.
Two of the longer entries express Williams operating, with nice facility, in the fictional creations of alternative writers. "The Thursday males" is a highly wonderful foray into the area of Mike Mignolla's Hellboy comics.

"Bad man manufacturing unit" is the script for a proposed sequence of DC Comics that by no means got here to fruition. "Black Sunshine" is the immensely readable screenplay for a film that is still, no less than for the instant, unproduced. you can actually simply hope.
These and different tales and novellas include a stellar assortment that actually does include whatever for everybody. For longtime Williams readers, and for an individual with a flavor for literate inventive fiction, A Stark and Wormy Knight is a welcome, and crucial, volume.
