The intrepid necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach - scourges of civilization, raisers of the dead, reapers of the souls of the living, devourers of hope, betrayers of faith, slayers of the innocent and modest personifications of evil - have a lot to answer for and answer they will, but first they must lie, murder and cheat their way through three more escapades in some of the harsher fringes, deprived wastelands and impoverished communities of the Malazan Empire. Much to the shame of their long-suffering general factotum, Emancipor Reese...

Here then - for readers' delectation and entertainment - are those escapades, namely the novellas “The Wurms of Blearmouth,” “The Crack'd Pot Trail” and “The Fiends of Nightmaria.”
