Nominated for the prestigious Appalachian Writers Association 2012 Appalachian Book of the Year Awards. The rugged mountains of Appalachia have always been a place where a man, if he was tough enough, could carve out a place for himself. The land is bountiful and composed of vast forests, racing rivers, and dizzying peaks. The region is also known for its courageous victors, monstrous villains, and tales of incredible adventure.

When a dozen of today’s hottest authors get together for an Appalachian tribute to the great pulp writers of the past, they deliver up a volatile mix of unpredictable action and adventure. Square-jawed heroes, desperate outlaws, dangerous women, hellfire roadsters, and aliens from another world are ready to set the hills on fire!

Story contributors include: Thomas Pluck, Jesse Knifley, Jessie Grayson, Steve Rasnic Tem, Josh Reynolds, Amber Keller, Jason Stuart, Steve Vernon, Paula Stiles, Patrick MacAdoo, Michael Knost, and Jamie Lackey.

Edited by Frank Larnerd.
