I wrote these tales over a twenty-year period. They represent a wide variety of genres and styles. Horror and fantasy are my favourite types of stories, so the majority falls into, though is not limited to, these categories.
The title refers to the county in which I live, Transylvania County, North Carolina, rather than the better-known defunct European nation associated with a certain vampire. Some of the stories are set in my home area, though many are more generally placed in Appalachia. Most have no explicit setting, which is as it should be since the tales are, in effect, universal. The very best works appeal to people across the borders of time and space, and it is my hope this collection will do the same. I truly hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. On, then, to the stories!
