?[ Viscera ] is dark, weird, and wonderfully human, and I cannot recommend it enough. It's far and away the weirdest, most original thing you will read this year , and Gabriel Squailia gives it heart that matches its entrails beat-for-beat." ? B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog The Gone-Away gods were real, once, and taller than towers. But they're long dead now, buried in the catacombs beneath the city of Eth, where their calcified organs radiate an eldritch power that calls out to anyone hardy enough to live in this cutthroat, war-torn land. Some survivors are human, while others are close enough, but all are struggling to carve out their lives in a world both unforgiving and wondrous. Darkly comic and viciously original, Viscera is an unforgettable journey through swords-and-sorcery fantasy where strangeness gleams from every nook and cranny. Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more.

Weird, weird, weird book, but ultimately satisfying. Every chapter goes whizzing off in a new unexpected direction but in the end the story is about very human motivations, characters, and oddly enough, love and forgiveness.

In one of the last chapters a character says, over a corpse of a very evil person:
"My family taught me, too, to begin every burial with these words, which my mother said were true of everyone who lives long enough to walk and talk--from the most honorable person lying here, down to the very worst. How they tried. How long, how hard they tried"
