The Noby Robert C. Morgan
Yet, a monster hunt is in order, and so is a clash of cultures, religions, and
Present-day, Deep South and rural Blasingame County, Alabama, isn't the place one would normally associate with an ancient Chinese wizard's curse, creatures from the underworld of ancient religious mythology, and a snappish Japanese national with State Department credentials.
Yet, a monster hunt is in order, and so is a clash of cultures, religions, and personalities.
It will take the efforts of the unlucky county sheriff and the bitter, driven monster-hunter from Japan to rid Blasingame County of a monster whose only limitation is a commonplace vine that grows all over the South.

Wow! A good read.
It seems of late that no good horror authors could exist in the South, but Robert Morgan undoubtedly believes otherwise. He writes with such description and mystery that his words will frighten even the bravest at heart. To introduce something that is created in the mind and make it seem as if it lurks around the reader is a difficult job that Morgan has done with ease. A+
People in the south are well acquainted with kudzu and I'm sure many of them have imagined the vines taking over everything. The vines of 'The No' take on qualities of mystery and a long-standing curse. Mr. Morgan was able to weave the tale of terror while educating the reader on numerous cultural and territorial truths. I will never look at kudzu again without my imagination slipping under the vines for another look at the possibilities.
Well written, fast-paced story with interesting characters and really wild connection to religion and monsters. Worth the read!
