Jason Stuart grew up eating squirrel meat and moon pies. He once jumped over a rattlesnake while winning a foot-race against a giant. He picked peas, potatoes and corn by the bushel every morning most of the summers of his young life and spent the rest of the afternoon shucking and shelling. He loaded chemical fertilizer for a while until his foot turned yellow and he quit. He’s driven a truck, washed dishes, tended bar, cleaned up bars, poured concrete, built houses, run a movie house, served process, worked cattle, and, at times, lived in his truck. He once had to arbitrate a gunfight regarding ownership of a chainsaw during the aftermath of a hurricane. He now rides a motorcycle and roots for the Gators.

A stolen UFO in a guns-hot chase across the American desert. A bootlegging mama on a motorcycle at a movie-house in the woods. A country music labor riot. A race across the county, robbery in progress, complete with armed lesbians. A sword-carrying WWII veteran arguing with an atomic toddler. A showdown against a giant tiger. And the unbelievable origin of the most haunted road in all of Culloden County, Mississippi. This collection of short stories, including the title novelette "Screaming Woman Road" -- a Southern Gothic retelling of the Norse Saga of the Volsungs -- gives a deeper glimpse into the strange and nefarious characters that make up the gritty, grimy mythology of South Mississippi's most infamous county.
