Beluthahatchie and Other Stories
This collection of fiction includes two never-before-published pieces in addition to a Hugo- and Nebula-nominated story. The title story spins the tale of a guitarist who refuses to disembark the train at Hell and his adventures at the next stop, Beluthahatchie. Other stories include plot lines about the career concerns of a member of "The Executioner's Guild" and graveyard romances in "The Premature Burials". These science fiction and speculative stories are told with a flair for Southern patois and are followed by comprehensive author's notes.
