Hillbilly Anthology by Jon Ketzner
Boy girl meet. Boy gets girl. Boy loses girl. Girl elopes with the Minotaur. Just one of the few story plots not to be found in this fun anthology of short stories. Romance, stone cold assassins, skirt chasing noir detectives, guitar heroes, Civil War poltergeists and naked lady holograms. They are all here. And more!
Written in a crisp, wry, comfort- food style by a new, and self-important, author and denizen of the back hollows of Appalachia, these stories are inspired by the works of actual authors who wrote to put food on the table. Unlike, say, Jon Ketzner, the author of this collection.
Get ready for a great read. Each tale is well told and compelling. This anthology is a fine addition to the uniquely American short story literary form. The author promises that the sequel will include a honeymooning Minotaur.
