Deep within the South, read about the magickal folk who haunt the woods, the cemeteries, and the cities. Within this grim anthology, eighteen authors will spellbind you with tales of hoodoo, voodoo, and witchcraft. From this cauldron mix, readers will explore the many dangers lurking upon the Natchez Trace and in the Mississippi Delta. They will encounter a bewitched doll named Robert from the Florida Keys, and a cursed trunk that is better left closed. In the backstreets of New Orleans, they will become acquainted with scorned persons who will stop at nothing to exact their revenge. These hair raising tales and more await you in Southern Haunts 3: Magick Beneath the Moonlight. Read if you dare.

The "tone" of southern life comes through very well in these stories. I'm from Mississippi, and it always bothers me when the south is portrayed in books and movies by someone who doesn't know the culture and uses stereo-types, often negative. This is NOT the case in this book. I could easily tell that the authors were familiar with the culture of the south, and this came through quite well. Overall, I highly recommend this book, and plan to pick up the first two in this series. Spooky stories, set in my native culture? What's not to like!! I actually bought and paid for this book, which is something I don't do very often these days.
