Author: Storm Constantine

Once in awhile, we here at WildClaw like to introduce artists and authors that have crossed our paths that we think you should know about. Our individual tastes are quite different so you should probably know whose making the recommendation. Today, Charlie Athanas, WildClaw poster artist, would like to suggest the work of author, Storm Constantine, as someone you should check out.

Constantine is best known for her expansive Wraeththu trilogy. My favorites involve her Andrew Collins-inspired works about the Grigori, a race of fallen angels. The stories are atmospheric, sexually-charged, filled with angel mythos and end of the world paranoia. She has been described by others as gothic horror. I would say she is a cross between Clive Barker and Sharon Shinn.
