Book Recommendation: Marquand Tales

Marquand Tales: A Non-Politically Correct Novel of Horror by Jay Whales is the no holds barred, non “woke” novel of horror about growing up in a small town infected with more than its fair share of things that go bump in the night. The residents of Marquand battle witches, in-bred rednecks, fake police officers, and aliens from other planets. They then have their morning coffee and continue the day battling monsters from below the earth’s surface, illegal aliens (YES, they do exist), bank robbers, a zombie that showed up once, wrestlers from the woods, moonshiners, revenuers, serial killers of all sorts and sizes, and this all before lunchtime.
