The Black Gash

Ash volunteered for the courthouse reorganization to gain a few credits for college. A future attorney, he anticipates a fascinating few months of studying courtroom proceedings and practices. What he’s given is several months of hard work inside a cramped and humid storage room, far from the air conditioned courtroom and the bench.

He stumbles across the records of an old trial where Annabelle Lynch was hanged for a massacre. He can’t believe the girl in the portrait was capable of such brutality. Intrigued, he begins to delve through her records in an effort to see what really happened. They called her a witch. They hated her. He’s certain their animosity was primitive and unfounded.

He soon discovers those old sentiments were based on something very real and very evil.

Appalachian Curiosities

Appalachian Curiosities is a copious compendium of characters, crimes, curios, and chimeras. Appalachian history is filled with ghost stories, tall tales, strange discoveries, and miscellaneous history that usually doesn’t find its way into regular history. From the strange ice mines of Scott County, Virginia, to the first environmentally-friendly car in Tennessee. From the heinous massacre enacted by a beloved North Carolina doctor, to a West Virginia family with five children who disappeared in one night. Curiosities contains victims of bizarre gas attacks, haunted tunnels, plantation legends, witches, and poltergeists that defied everyone who encountered them. From phantom animals to ghost lights, our mountains are filled with mysteries and few have been solved.

Curiosities features a host of stories that have long been forgotten, as well as in-depth exploration of many urban myths. It offers material from five central Appalachian states, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, and West Virginia, with a focus on Southwestern Virginia and Northeastern Tennessee.
