The title story of the collection, "Fruiting Bodies," tells of the gradual, horrific disappearance of an entire village, including the residents, showing that even the slowest forms of destruction cannot, in the end, be outrun. The centerpiece of the collection is a long work, "Born of the Winds." This tale of an old god in a modern world was nominated for the World Fantasy Award. Many of these stories have not previously appeared in book form or been published in the United States, including "Necros," in which a young man trying to recover from a broken heart falls in love with a beautiful woman - and discovers that love can be more deadly than hate.
