About the Book

"Fears and ambitions tangled together in his mind until he no longer knew what to desire, what there was in the world — good or ill, or that born of whatever twisted conspiracy is struck between the two — worth the price of his heart." Life follows a mysterious path for Poncey S. Muldoon, as he finds a treasure buried since the Civil War ... as his dog Judas helps teach town bully Bobby Roach a lesson ... as his best friend Marlin MacLenoly adopts a stray peacock that barely escaped becoming an entree at a failing restaurant. For residents of the small Southern town of Skullbone, the days unfold in always fascinating and always pointless ways through these entertaining and insightful stories.

About the Author

Craig Davis was born and bred in Memphis, Tenn., during the dying days of Jim Crow, what Flannery O'Connor called the Christ-Haunted South. After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism at University of Missouri, he toiled for 20 years in various newsrooms as a columnist, designer, artist and cartoonist. Writing fiction since 2004, he has produced four novels and a number of short stories, essays and Bible studies. Davis is currently working on a new collection of Christian Gothic short stories, to be titled "Red Hair Rising," one story from which is represented by the video above. He has two grown daughters and a dog who refuses to grow up, and was once wrestled to the ground by a set of bagpipes.
