If you like your horror deep-fried with a side of chitlin’s, Seed is the book for you. Set in the Deep South of the United States, Seed is the perfect slice of Southern gothic themes.
Tormented since his childhood days in Georgia, a man named Jack has to come face to face with a demon that’s been following him throughout his life.
If that doesn’t draw you in, maybe this synopsis will: “When Jack, his wife Aimee, and their two small children survive a violent car crash, it seems like a miracle. But Jack knows what he saw on the road that night, and it wasn’t divine intervention.”

All Heads Turn When The Hunt Goes By is an oldie but a goodie. It chronicles the generational curse of an Arkansas family, starting with a murderous rampage committed by a groom on his wedding day.
Set against a southern US backdrop, it tackles everything from slavery to Marie Laveau style voodoo. Author John Farris has a certain way with prose that really immerses you into the believable world he’s building, despite its more fantastical elements.
