  • During the 1930s Depression years, the Virginia Writers project sent authors, editors and reporters out into the coves and hollows of the Appalachian Mountains and record the beliefs, traditions and superstitions of the mountain folk. Although the stories were duly collected, transcribed and sent to Richmond with the idea of publishing a book on American folklore the ultimate goal was never accomplished and the stories were archived in the University of Virginia. The stories in this volume have drawn heavily on the Virginia Project and goes beyond that - proceeding  from the assumption that the tales of the mountain folk were heavily influenced by the experiences of their ancestors,  many of whom were of Scottish, Irish or German origin and who settled in Virginia, Texas, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas. As a result, tales about Cajuns, Indians and Spaniards are incorporated. Through the 75 + stories in this volume, there emerges a comprehensive overview of the beliefs and practices of a segment of the population to whom witches and witchcraft were a part of daily life.
  • Book II of Heathen. The good times for writer Christopher Ward are over. Struggling to complete his latest novel, he finds himself sucked into a vicious spiral: the further into the book he gets, the harder it becomes; the harder it becomes, the quicker he slides towards depression and alcoholism. Then the incidents begin. How is it that he rarely works and yet, day after day, he finds whole chapters of his novel completed? And what of the things he sees at night? Are they dreams or apparitions? Alone in his house, and within the decaying confines of his own mind, Ward is pushed to the very edge of sanity. As a writer, Ward has always explored the darker side of the human mind. Now it's time for him to experience the darkness for real. For when the final revelations begin, Ward discovers a truth more terrifying than anything dredged from the most twisted imagination...Cover art by Larry Rostant.
