This is what Journalstone says about it:
The highly anticipated follow-up to BookList’s Top Ten Best Horror of 2016 selection, The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft.
The Demons of King Solomon is the innovative sequel to JournalStone Publishing’s bestselling anthology The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft. This anthology explores the legendary demonic bestiary of King Solomon by bringing together popular authors in horror, occultism, and dark fantasy, including many NY Times bestsellers, as well as featuring original artwork by John Coulthart and descriptions of the demons by Richard Smoley.
The mythology of King Solomon and his Solomonic magic played a key role in the history of magic and occultism and influenced countless hautning and fantastical tales. The traditions of goEtia and grimoire owe their uniqueness to the legendary accounts of different classes, abilities, and categories of demons. Asmodeus, Belial, Abyzou, and Marchosias–these cryptic, evocative names continue to fascinate and terrify those who dare utter them.
I’m very excited to be part of this book, and thank Aaron J. French and Journalstone for including me.
