Stephen Graham Jones & S. A. Crosby
The Mark Twain House & Museum is delighted to reunite bestselling and award-winning authors Stephen Graham Jones and S.A. Cosby in conversation discussing their new novels!
2021 Mark Twain American Voice in Literature Award-winner and horror master Stephen Graham Jones (The Only Good Indian) is unleashing the page-turning second installment of his Lake Witch Trilogy, Don’t Fear the Reaper. Jade Daniels is released from prison when her conviction is overturned. But life beyond bars takes a dangerous turn as soon as she returns to the rural lake town of Proofrock. At the same time, convicted Indigenous serial killer Dark Mill South escapes into town to complete his revenge killings. Dark Mill South’s Reunion Tour will end thirty-six hours and twenty bodies later.
S.A. Cosby, the award-winning novelist of such bestsellers as Blacktop Wasteland and Razorblade Tears, is getting plaudits for his latest edge-of-your seat novel, All the Sinners Bleed. Titus Crown is the first Black sheriff in the history of Charon County, Virginia. A year to the day after Titus’s election, a school teacher is killed by a former student and the student is fatally shot by Titus’s deputies. As Titus investigates the shootings, he unearths terrible crimes and a serial killer who has been hiding in plain sight, haunting the dirt lanes and woodland clearings of Charon. Charon is Titus’s home and his heart. But where faith and violence meet, there will be a reckoning.
