“Empire of the Necromancer” by Clark Ashton Smith


Story 270/366

This zombie story comes recommended by writer/editor Silvia Moreno-Garcia, who is collecting short stories set in Canada for the upcoming Dead North anthology. Clark was an American writer who died in 1961, but this story is extremely 19th century. (Actually, his ornate writing style also reminded me of Anne Rice.) You can read the story here.

See you tomorrow!
