This book illuminates the impact, lasting influence, and personalities involved with the creation and development of dark fantasy works of the 20th and 21st century—classics of literature, cinema, and television. This collection of new and reprinted material will focus on recognized trailblazers—Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Hugh Hefner, etc.—as well as those whose contributions have been sadly neglected. Featuring profiles, interviews, and essays, this collection will provide insight into not only what is important, but why, and how these works have made such an impact on popular culture.

«Ορκίστηκα να πάρω εκδίκηση για τον θάνατο του πατέρα μου. Μπορεί να ’μαι μισός άντρας, αλλά ο όρκος που πήρα ήταν ολόκληρος». Αδύναμος κι ανάξιος στα μάτια του πατέρα του, ο πρίγκιπας Γιάρβι είναι ολομόναχος σ’ έναν κόσμο που κυβερνάται από σιδηρά χέρια και ψυχρές καρδιές. Ανίκανος να κρατήσει ασπίδα ή να χειριστεί πέλεκυ, πρέπει ν’ ακονίσει τον νου του μέχρι να γίνει το φονικότερο απ’ όλα τα όπλα. Όταν η τραγωδία και οι δολοπλοκίες τον ξεριζώνουν από τη ζωή που γνώριζε, ο Γιάρβι ορκίζεται ν’ ανακτήσει έναν θρόνο που ποτέ δεν επιθύμησε. Πρώτα όμως πρέπει να επιβιώσει από τη σκληρότητα, τις αλυσίδες και τα πικρά νερά της Τσακισμένης Θάλασσας – κι όλα αυτά με μονάχα ένα γερό χέρι.
