Manly Wade Wellman has found his way into the canon of American gothic short fiction. Owls Hoot in the Daytime and Other Omens brings together some of his most intriguing and hair-raising tales of terror and danger. Known for his portrayal of the American Appalachians, Manly Wade Wellman has carved out a niche as one of the greats in science-fiction and fantasy. Brian Troxell's performance of Wellman's work is truly chilling. Troxell seems to have an innate understanding of the sense of mounting dread that characterizes Wellman's deeply unnerving work.
Owls Hoot in the Daytime & Other Omens is the 5th and final volume of Night Shade Books' five volume "Selected Stories of Manly Wade Wellman." This volume contains all of the John the Balladeer stories (sometimes better known as Silver John), Manly's most famous character.
