Welcome to Redgunk
A Complete Compendium of Tales From One Weird Mississippi Town
A Fall/Winter 2021 release!
by William R. Eakin
Forget Arkham and Dogpatch, Yoknapatawpha County and Hooterville, forget what guidebooks might allege, because the weirdest town to be found in the Western Hemisphere is Redgunk, Mississippi. For over twenty years, author William Eakin has been spinning tales of this backwater place, where strange encounters are more than local gossip and the kudzu hides all manner of creatures and adventures. These stories were first published in such magazines as Realms of Fantasy, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Epiphany: A Journal of Literature, Amazing Stories, Science Fiction Age, New Writings in the Fantastic, Holy Horrors, Albedo One, Black October Magazine, SciFiction, the Year’s Best Fantasy, Age of Wonder, and others.

"Sort of like Thomas Wolfe on acid, or James Joyce on moonshine, Bill Eakin takes the words, the rhythms, the heat, the mud, the cicadas and the kudzu of the south and turns them into stories that touch your heart while messing with your brain stem and possibly tampering with your DNA. A truly original and unique voice." - Shawna McCarthy, Realms of Fantasy
