Publisher's Summary

A dark collection of tales from the American South full of twists and turns that you will never see coming. From straight-up classic Southern gothic to a dystopian tale of mechanical peacekeepers, there is something for everyone who enjoys solid storytelling and original concepts. 

Did you ever have your name on the board for misbehaving in class? If you only got in trouble with the teacher, you should count yourself lucky. Ever find something old in the water? Was it an old box? Did it divide your whole town in ways you couldn’t imagine? What is beauty, and how do you stay forever young? The answer might not be what you want, especially if Joe passes by your house. Where does art come from? An old man’s backyard? Who’s to say? Have you ever been in the bottom of a grave? The view gives you quite the perspective on life. What happens to a person when they get struck by lightning? More than you think, I’m sure. Do you know your spouse? I mean, really know them. Are you sure? We all have our secrets. Do you remember being a kid and drawing a doodle on your skin, maybe an innocent stick man figure? Yeah, don’t do that. It could be more dangerous than you think.
