Welcome to the incredibly tedious town of Lufton. Our story begins with Robert and Dyan, a couple of misfits, reading from a book from the restricted section of the library at Vidette U (of course, not too restricted or we could never kick start the plot, right?). Unfortunately for everyone concerned, even the simple act of reading the text allows a tentacled thing to manifest and spread its influence across the entire county. We then meet some other principle characters: Sherriff Morgan, Wyatt, Amanda, Luanne. Suddenly everyone is overwhelmed by some sort of noxious miasma and about this time absolute mayhem grips the community as everyone awakens from unsettling dreams at 6:33 AM the next morning. Some residents of Conover County have transformed into horrible hybrids of humanity and monstrous things, and busy themselves devouring or dismembering anyone they encounter. Of course any semblance of a plot is just that; what follows is a series of very loosely linked vignettes, where horror piles on top of horror. We more or less follow the adventures of our protagonists.Read more ›
Somewhere along Interstate 40 North lies the backwoods Conover County, site of Aaron Williams' stab at Southern Gothic. In its city of Lufton two students meddles with dark forces beyond their ken. They crack open one of them books and invoke a spell on a whim. That's all it takes for hell to bust open. The residents fall into an odd slumber and wake up to find that most of them have turned into monsters and Conover County mystically sealed off from the outside world.
Not everyone's become a nightmarish creature. Not everyone indulges in brutal depravities. Some remain normal and these have no choice but to hunker down and hope to elude becoming the latest victims. A select few gain incredible abilities. Wyatt Hinkle, dirt farmer's son, develops superhero-type powers. Amanda Walker, young half-breed outcast, becomes a witch's apprentice. She slings a rusty scythe.Read more ›
