A psychedelic journey through carnal swamps where bog creatures spawn with the surreal. The most heinous ritual is the human witch hunt.

Raw, sexual, violence of witchcraft old school horror. Faun tells a suberb tale of lust and family betrayal over black magic and disturbing imagery. This book dips into the deepest part of your mind, peeling back your skull where it leaves it mark.

Michael Faun's best to date. Recommended!

Blood in the water, blood in the land. Southern Gothic crossed with B-Movie, like John Farris and Flannery O'Connor wrote a script to be directed by Jim and Artie Mitchell. Lurid and mesmerizing, festooned with horrors taken for granted flowing into each other like water under the mangrove trees overhung with Spanish moss in little old New Alabama...the narrator's camera eye does not shrink from depicting each gross and engrossing incident in this catalogue of terror.
It's just past the Civil War

Stunning classic horror that pulled me into it's clutches and refused to let go. The storytelling was vivid and rich, shrouded in plenty of sinister, pagan fascination. A nod here to the pacing: plot lines and characters seemed to fall in to place at just the right moments. I am anxiously looking forward to reading the rest of Faun's books. This one simply had that magical quality that I look for in a great book. Highly recommended.

This tale of witchcraft, lust, familial betrayal and violence, a malevolent tree and other horrors is a burn-through  and superb read, one that is worth owning if you are not squeamish and like your gory thrills raw with a nasty attitude.

Michael Faun's newest novella may be short but sometimes the shortest books pack the biggest punch. If you've ever read Michael's work you know that he often mixes in a variety of genres to create something unique, but this time he's written a straight up horror novel that holds back just a little and the results are quite stunning. Taking the idea of the occult and the hysteria of the Salem Witch Trials and blending them together you get Gillian Marsh. This is by far the best novel that Faun h ...more
