Abstract:

"There are thirteen nightmares here, one for each state of Dixie. Dark visions, these, by such authors as John D. MacDonald, the best-selling mystery writer; Jesse Stuart, one of the nation's best regional writers; Karl Edward Wagner, a psychiatrist whose knowledge of the abysses of the mind gives his tales a terror of solid conviction; and William Gilmore Simms, full-grown when Madison was President, one of whose works Poe himself called the best ghost story he'd ever read. These nightmares concern us all. For this is not merely a regional anthology. These stories are set not only in the South, but in the dark heart of man."--Page 4 of cover.
