There's blood in the Southern Earth. Meet twin brothers bound to the sacred rite of grave stomping and a young girl indebted to a darkness in the woods. Visit a small town where pro-wrestling takes the place of human sacrifice and an alternate reality where meteorite-born mutations rend the fabric of society. It's a world where giant catfish roam the man-made depths of Kentucky Lake, racial horror haunts the shadows of small-town life and all we can do is wonder at our own twisted roots in the soil.
About the Author
Robert J. Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction, but such are the trials of puberty. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He makes his home in Atlanta with his loving wife Bonnie and mummy-obsessed son Sebastian.
