It was passed down from generation to generation. The legend of the Dark 'Un, the strange beast that roamed Pale Dove Mountain. The dark monster that no one had ever seen -- at least not and lived to tell about it -- except, so it was said, old Fletcher Brice who lived at the foot of the mountain.

No one really believed in The Dark 'Un. It was just a story to make a child's

This book was fantastic. A wildly imaginative blend of horror, science fiction, fantasy and good old southern folklore. Kelly is quickly becoming one of my favorite genre authors. He's a truly original voice in horror lit. Recommended for those who want to read something very different.
The "monsters" are very cool and the story is great fun. The characters' relationships are tied up a bit too neatly at the end.

He became interested in horror as a child, watching the local "Creature Feature" on Saturday nights and "The Big Show"---a Nashville-based TV show that presented every old monster movie ever made ---in the afternoons after school. In high school, his interest turned to horror literature and he read such writers as Poe, ...more
