Welcome to the South. Recognized for its traditions, beliefs and hospitality. The people are genuine and a helping hand and a home cooked meal are never too far away.

There are twists and turns galore in this amazing collection of short stories by A.J. Brown. The characters are well defined and the stories flow as your mind takes you through many emotions.

I loved this book, the writing is amazing. Most anthologies are a bit hit and miss; there were only one or two stories in this one that felt a little weak. Overall though the stories were quite varied and entertaining and I was drawn right in. There were just a couple of little typos (it should be moat, not mote)which is a pet peeve but I am so glad I grabbed this book and I will be seeking out more by this writer.

Southern Bones in an engaging collection from beginning to end. The characters are well-written. You will forget they are works of fiction as you view the world (and its many dark secrets) through their eyes. No two stories in this collection are alike. This book offers a ton of variety from a strong voice in horror, and all for an extremely fair price on Kindle. I highly recommend it!
