In the black heart of coal country, malevolent spirits and unearthly creatures slip from the shadows into the minds and hearts of men. Young women, twisted by pain, call for love and revenge by the light of the moon. A dead dog by the side of the road is more than it seems. In Harlan County, Kentucky, the supernatural and the mundane mingle in the depths of the earth, filling the mines with powerful forces that draw people down and corrupt from within.

Uncover family legacies of evil in Stephanie Lenz’s “Inheritance” and Maurice Broaddus’ “Trouble Among the Yearlings.” Walk the surreal nightmare of alien control in Earl P. Dean’s “Hiding Mountain: Our Future in Apples.” Twelve stories of coal-black shadow from authors intimately familiar with the region are waiting to take you to the depths of the earth and into the darkness of the human soul.
