Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Thursday, January 18, 2024
I got this hardcover from the ongoing book sale at the Nashua Public Library. It's a collection of short stories, set in a fictional North Carolina town, and featuring a mix of personal issues and supernatural notes. Among my favorites:

"Mamiwata," in which a young girl meets a handsome man - or water spirit? - who at first gives her a gift of a giant catfish, and then offers her a haven when slave-catchers come close.

"Resurrection Hardware or Lard & Promises": a man and his lover might be seeing ghosts at a haunted inn; this one, too, features a character offering escape by water, but here the protagonist opts to remain behind. Atmospheric and strange.

Chosen from dabercro's "Books I've Read and Journaled Bookbox #3"

A book of stories written about the author's fictional territory of Tims Creek, North Carolina and some of the people who live there, apparently from reading the book flap's synopsis. Looking forward to reading it some time in the future.
