Tyson Hanksabout this anthology: Greetings from Barker Marsh is a story about a train town with evil roots.
But that's not entirely true.
It's more like a collection of four stories, told by a local homeless man to another railroad hobo in the shelter of a dilapidated factory. Each tale is more frightening than the last, and eventually the drifter realizes that he hopped off the train in the wrong town. Nothing and no one is what they seem.
There's something for most horror fans in this book—from serial killers to werewolves, and plenty of other ghastly subjects in between. Greetings from Barker Marsh will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, at which point it will completely knock you out of your chair.
Author Tyson Hanks takes the town he grew up in and turns it upside down, putting onto paper all of his childhood fears. Some are fictional, some are based on local folklore, but all are sure to cost the reader some sleep.

• "Some places are just evil. Tyson Hanks slowly removes the veil of a small mid-western town to expose an evil that has corrupted the town for hundreds of years. Frightening scares that make your skin crawl!" — John Catapano, author of Clarence, The Unusual suspects, and The Baby Boomer Horror and Sci-Fi Movie Trivia Book
