‘I made this place and filled it with all these monsters…’
Hoo-Doo County is a fictional high mountain county horror author Jonathan Moon uses often as a setting for his dark and beautiful stories. Containing both new stories and rewritten classics from Mr. Moon this is the first collection of shorts in the series. This set includes the stories The Full Moon Express, Roadside Crosses, Witch Hunt Sunrise, and Parched. Also, includes a small chapter about the stories from Mr. Moon himself.
I’ve gotten used to visiting fictional towns like Walker’s Woods, and Castle Rock, but I wasn’t prepared to enter Hoo-Doo County. In the synopsis, the author says “I made this place and filled it with all these monsters…”, and I knew it was a place I had to visit.
The four tales in this anthology are The Full Moon Express, Witch Hunt Sunrise, Roadside Crosses, and Parched. Werewolves, witches, ghosts, vampires all lurk in Hoo-Doo County – and they’re waiting for you to come and visit.
As soon as I finished, I immediately dove into Hoo-Doo County Horrors Volume 2, (review to come). I just found out that there is a Volume 3 ready and waiting for me, and I’ve been due for another vacation…
American Horror Story has introduced me to voices and music that I might have never found on my own. Florence and the Machine is the band that does the AHS theme, and they’ve done a lot of the songs you hear in the background of both seasons one & two.
Hannah Peel is the owner of that haunting voice you heard in some select AHS promos and trailers. That version of Tainted Love that got under your skin, (in a good way), that was Hannah Peel and only a music box! You’ve heard that, right? Here…
See! Didn’t I tell you? Now, add that voice behind a montage of ‘Tate & Violet’ moments… you’ll be queuing up Netflix just to see “I’ll wait forever if I have to…” Awww… tear…
This season, wow.
It hasn’t even begun, but I heard a short clip and started searching!! House Of The Rising Sun is an awesome song to begin with, but I thought I’d heard my all time favorite cover (of any song) when I listened to Walking Dead’s version. (Long before the AMC zombie series, there was a band named Walking Dead. Never made it big, but I loved them ((nothing to do with my crush on the bass player, I swear)). If I ever talk to ‘said bass player’ again, I’ll try to get you a copy.)
Enough of my ramblings… I’d love it if you listened to this cover. Lauren O’Connell has a voice that you’ll never forget. I’ve subscribed to her YouTube channel, she has a lot of quality material. Check her out!
