Blade Runner meets Sling Blade in the weirdest Southern Gothic ever. Far into the future, in the nuclear bowels of post-apocalyptic Dixie, there is a town. A town of derelict mobile homes, ancient junk, and mutant wildlife. A town of slack jawed rednecks who bask in the splendors of moonshine and mud boggin'. A town dedicated to the bloody and demented legacy of the Old South. 
A TOWN CALLED SUCKHOLE But all is not well for the last remnant of hillbilly society. Suckhole's annual "Hell-Yeah Heritage Jamboree" is suddenly threatened by a string of gruesome murders. The town's sheriff, an illiterate yokel with a cleft pallet, is at his extremely limited wit's end, and he knows there is only one man smart enough to solve the mystery: Dexter Spikes, a monstrous missing link between swamp and man brought to life by natural evolution. He lives in the swamps alone, shunned by the simple townsfolk of Suckhole who don't believe in the wicked sciencery of his existence. If Dexter takes the sheriff's case, he'll have to face the undead culprits behind the murders, who are determined to bring about the next apocalypse. If he refuses the job, the town will be doomed to a vicious slaughter.

From the Back Cover:

EPIC PRAISE FOR A TOWN CALLED SUCKHOLE! "The town itself is a character, beautifully realized through unconventional means.  Barbee's Suckhole is like one big birth defect, yet somehow he makes it all appealing... smothered and covered like an order of Aussie fries, and the gooier it gets, the more delicious it is to digest.  Highly recommended." -AIN'T IT COOL NEWS "A Town Called Suckhole is the finest post-apocalyptic southern gothicmudpunk buddy-cop blow-out ever put to print.Which is to say this mutant motherfucker of a debut novel lands withserious world-inventing swagger and marks David W Barbee as a go-to Bizarrowriter for outrageously over-the-top action, big laughs and surprisingheart."  -JEREMY ROBERT JOHNSON, authorof Skullcrack City and Angel Dust Apocalypse
 
"With the manic intensity of a tent revival on fire and the stupefyingmendacity of a snake oil peddler on peyote, Barbee builds a rich, grimy worldso steeped in rampaging Confederate id that for long stretches, I could not seeit clearly through my red, blinding rage at not having written it, myself."-CODY GOODFELLOW, author of Repo Shark and Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars
 
"Joe R. Lansdale has some company when it comes to crazy southerngothic weirdness-a man by the name of David W. Barbee.  Basically, every little thing that was, is,and will be wrong with redneck culture is absolutely right in A Town CalledSuckhole." -THE AUSTIN POST  "Imagine every Southern stereotype and caricature distilleddown to the mule-kickest moonshine ever there was, quadruple that, set it onfire, and splash it directly onto the raw wound of your brain. That's whatreading this book is like."  -HORROR FICTION REVIEW
