THE HILLS ARE ALIVE—WITH MUTANTS AND MAGIC.!
Evil men and evil magic are poised to prey on the people of the hamlets and hollows of Appalachia: witches, demons, and criminals of more than one century. But the mountain folk have defenders, too, as strange and varied as the dangers that threaten them:
David Drake's unforgettable OLD NATHAN the Wizard, a backwoodsman who talks to animals and who'll fight the Devil himself if he must.
Henry Kuttner's grimly hilarious HOGBEN FAMILY, some of whom aren't entirely human—and others who're entirely inhuman.
Eric Flint and Ryk E. Spoor's SLADES, whose uneasy coexistence with underground spirits is about to end in an earthquake that'll wipe humanity off the surface of four states.
Magic, mutants, and mountaineers mixing in adventures that range from eerie to side-splittingly funny:
"[David Drake] has developed a following . . . just short of cult proportions." —Rave Reviews
"[Eric Flint is] an SF author of particular note, one who can entertain and edify in equal, and major, measure." —Publishers Weekly
"I consider the work of Henry Kuttner to be the finest science fantasy ever written." —Marion Zimmer Bradley
Unfortunately the Kuttner estate does not allow publication of electronic versions of his works. So we had to remove all of the Kuttner stories from the WebScriptions version. In their place we've added Manly Wade Wellman's John the Balladeer stories. Certainly they fit the books theme of Mountain Magic.
