Marking the Signs and Other Tales of Mischief (2005)
Laura J Underwood
"These edgy and sometimes disturbing tales evoke the southern Appalachian folkways and mythology with a deftness that only a native can manage.  Whether it's black magic against white, in "Marking the Signs", or a country boy's passion for his truck, in "Nice Truck", Laura J. Underwood has the right combination of believable characters, authentic mountain settings, a twist of humor, and cold-down-the-backbone touch of horror."
