Tim Westover, a graduate of Davidson College and the University of Georgia, lives in suburban Atlanta. Westover is an established writer in the International Language Esperanto; his short story collection Marvirinistrato [Mermaid Street] was published in 2009, and his stories appear in translation in the anthology Star in a Night Sky (Francis Boutle Publishers, UK). Born in the north, educated in England, and frequent visitor to Russia, he found his home in the North Georgia mountains, where his first novel, Auraria, is set. In addition to writing, Westover busies himself with programming, playing the clawhammer banjo, and raising his one-year-old daughter to be a modern American eccentric.

This collection of twenty four new stories explores the supernatural side of the American South. Stretching from the Civil War to the present day, these stories visit mysterious bingo parlors and meet devils at the crossroads; they see battles in Florida’s citrus orchards and explore haunted bed & breakfasts.
“Fact and fancy are intertwined cleverly and seamlessly in a top-notch, thoroughly American fantasy.” Publishers Weekly (starred review). Taking its inspiration from a real Georgia ghost town, Auraria is steeped in the folklore of the Southern Appalachians, where the tensions of natural, supernatural and artificial are still alive.
