APPALACHIAN GALAPAGOS follows the smash success of Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors with authors Weston Ochse and David Whitman returning us to the world of rednecks, human-skin beer cozies, urban legends come to life, southern mythology, drunkards flying in lawn chairs, contemplations on the nature of god, and the monsters within us all. Galapagos cements its ownership of the genre opening with a grand opus of a novella co-written by both authors, featuring backwoods churches, boat rides, and bigfoots. Fourteen additional stories provide us glorious glances into a world of bug zappers, cheetos, and beer-fueled madness. Grand Master of Horror Edward Lee points out in his introduction that ‘this very successful collection is unlike anything that is being done today’ and ‘is perhaps the most successful collection of the year.’

In the first story alone, I laughed out loud and came very close to tears. Superb work by outstanding authors. Very highly recommended.

I thought Scary Rednecks was good, but this one out Scaries the original. The opening story is one of the best stories I've read in years. I laughed, cried and nodded my head at the truth of it. Others scared me, made me worried and made me think. This one kicks!

When David Whitman and Weston Ochse decided to write another collection together, fans of 'Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors' were excited to say the least. This collection, though, cannot be labeled as a mere sequel. The novella that is at the heart of this book is masterful. Bigfoot, Darwin, cultists, and a wild river ride. Need I say more. The characters are well-rounded and with every passing page, these writers redefine what good southern fiction should be. If you're looking to laugh so hard you can't see, buy this book. If you're looking to squirm in your seat, buy this book. If you're looking for the new face of horror, buy this book and hang onto it, it's a sure investment.

David and Weston read some of this book at the Horrorfind Convention in 2002 and had the audience on the floor in hysterics. It is drool, witty, over-the-top black stories from two of the brightest new minds in genre fiction. 'Scary Rednecks and Other Inbred Horrors' was black-humored and amusing, but this collection manages to outshine it. Not to be missed, and Medium Rare Books has done a beautiful job with the packaging.
