Southern Dust is an old school pulp adventure using several narrators to tell an interconnected Southern story. The tale begins with Gretchen. She lives in Alabama has a cotillion coming up and she also is looking to find a husband. For those of you who don’t know what a cotillion is – it’s a French country dance, a social gathering that was popular in the 18th century. There is more dialogue than description when it comes to this segment of the story. However, what flows is nicely written and i ...more

Just finished reading “Southern Dust” by Caspar Vega. I would like to thank Caspar for gifting me an e-copy of this book. It’s been quite some time that I read an entire book in one sitting, but this one sucked me and and would not let me go. This book had a little bit of everything; black magic, vampire like monster, espionage, suspense, politics and just a touch of noir. A southern themed gem with a bite (wink, wink). Great characters and a plot that

Review originally posted on Ctrl, Alt, Books!

Southern Dust was unlike anything I have read before. It is a couple short stories that intertwine with one another. It was fun to try and piece together and see how the puzzle fits together. Each new part of the story drew me in. My favorites were the last two stories. Those last bits kept me reading. I felt a connection to the characters and really felt their emotions.

There is some mature content in this book. It does get a bit graphic but not overl

This is a weird story. And I don't mean that in a bad way, because I generally think weird is awesome. There's just no denying this story is definitely weird.

We've got a Southern belle getting tangled up with the young, attractive governor of Alabama, who may be crazy? (I thought he was crazy, but the aforementioned Southern belle was apparently crazy about him, so go figure). We've also got a Captain America type of experiment gone wrong (as in hairy vampire wrong), and a freelance law enforcer

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

An incredible genre fusion of a book comes together in author Caspar Vega’s novel Southern Dust. A story filled with monsters, civil war and tales of revenge all set in a post-Trump era, this story delves into the differences between people in our divided world, and how it fuels the actions taken on a large scale. Here’s the synopsis:

A diesel-fueled, black magic powered, vampire-creating Souther

The book was set up as a series of four separate, but intertwined vignettes.  The first vignette told the story of Gretchen and wasn't made up of more than a few pages.  It basically consisted of how she met the Governor.  Part 2 was the Governor's story.  This was a substantial portion of the book and told of his rise and fall. In part 3, Roger Conaway takes center stage with his story of how he went from an enforcer for a mobster to a super-soldier.  The fourth and final part tells the struggl ...more
