Fellow heavy metal fantasists Matthew Knight (ETERNAL WINTER), Howie K. Bentley (CAULDRON BORN / BRITON RITES), and Byron A. Roberts (BAL-SAGOTH) have collaborated to write KARNOV: PHANTOM-CLAD RIDER OF THE COSMIC ICE. Now available from DMR Books featuring a Foreword by Jon Zaremba (JON ZAREMBA / HAUNTED ABBEY MYTHOS).

From the publisher:

“Matthew Knight, Howie K. Bentley and Byron A. Roberts unite to pen this blood-drenched tale of Gothic-inspired sword and sorcery, each of their individual styles bringing to life memorable characters, otherworldly creatures, savage battles and darkly heroic scenarios. Classic horror film atmosphere meets pulp-style swashbuckling adventure, this action-packed epic is sure to please any fan of dark fantasy.”

Matthew Knight adds:

“The result of this great collaboration has exceeded my wildest expectations, and I couldn’t be happier with the final product! KARNOV is dark, heroic, and action-packed with a very “heavy metal” kind of attitude. In addition to being good friends of mine, Byron and Howie are two of the finest writers in the sword and sorcery genre. I feel honored to have worked with them on this project. It was an incredible experience, and I sincerely hope that all the readers of this book will enjoy our creation as much as I do.”
