Description

Welcome to a place where wholesome farms hide family secrets, pastoral terrain serves as a sinister setting, and a cast of unusual and otherworldly characters play out a wide range of haunting tales. This is the imaginative world of Country Stories of Ghosts and Bad Men, a collection of short pieces penned by author Todd Curtis Narron, spanning the rural South, from the devastation of the Civil War to the bustling province of the 1980s. Here, you'll meet a father whose grief over his fallen son drives him to incredible depths, you'll experience the painful inequality suffered by particular social classes during the 1940s, and you'll discover the unsettling truth behind a man who can, quite literally, scare you to death. Combining enthralling horror with captivating local folklore, this selection of tales explores the darkness that can be found throughout rustic, quiet territory, from the amusingly absurd to the deeply disturbing. Featuring unusual situations, eccentric characters, and shocking twists and turns, Country Stories of Ghosts and Bad Men spans more than one-hundred years of history, with tales that have a single theme in common-the vanishing American farm, and the disappearance of the country way of life.show more

About Todd Curtis Narron

Todd Curtis Narron was raised on a tobacco farm in Johnston County, North Carolina, and went on to work as a farm laborer for an agriculture research firm. He is a graduate of Louisburg College, where he earned his two-year degree in business, and currently lives in Clayton, North Carolina, with his wife and two children. As an author, Narron's work is strongly inspired by a tradition of oral storytelling in his family as well as times when stories were the only thing that would get him through a difficult day. Now, he enjoys telling tales to his children whenever he gets the chance-to share how things used to be, before high-tech machinery and computers, when family farms and sharecropping were a way of life.show more
