In this collection of 14 speculative short stories, author A.A. Garrison takes us to Ford, North Carolina, a sleepy little mountain town named after a Civil War deserter. Though out of the way, the town seems to attract an immoderate share of the fantastic and the macabre.

Amongst Ford�s citizens are:

�Blake (�The Fifty�), who purchases revenge with a fifty-dollar bill
�Candy Patrice (�Cloyed�), a young woman who adopts a most unorthodox diet-plan
�Mara Dees (�Additive Free�), the unlikely star in a grisly scheme to appease visitors from outer space
�Johannes Bitter (�Half Dead�), an undertaker with an exceptional case of lady trouble
�Kay Barry (�The Minutes�), a woman on her way to a fateful real-estate closing
�The Doctor (�See Sick�), a roving voyeur who sees more than he bargains for
�Roy Mitchell (�The Imaginal�), a professional shipper who spends an enlightening night with himself
�Frank Belmont (�Dead End�), who goes hunting for nostalgia and finds trouble
�Patrick Timothy (�Hoodoo�), a Charlotte reporter investigating the mysterious Bailer cult headquartered in Ford
�Brian (�Brian, Destroyer of Worlds�), who becomes the first man to commit murder by coffee
�Zedok Crane (�The Package�), amnesic serial killer extraordinaire
�Don Frangipani (�The Gardener�), Ford�s only retired cookbook author, and the victim of a subterranean horror�s malefic horticulture
�And The Narrator (�The Center�), a man who saw the face of God and forgot his own name

But don�t let them scare you off. The town isn�t all bad. We�ll grab a bite at the Burger Boy and then see the Cado Kid show tonight. It�s really a fine little burg, a place you could settle down. Welcome to Ford.
