“In a style that blends Southern Gothic elements with realist storytelling, Ben E. Campbell’s stories examine all facets of modern Appalachia -- the marriage of old-world values to a region caught in change, the fight to balance land use, the will to labor on. Here, in these twelve tales, is the age-old struggle of choice: between the path that’s bathed in light and the one eclipsed by darkness -- both seeking weary travelers, but one with stronger pull. In A Welcome Walk into the Dark, Ben E. Campbell has woven a collection of brutal yet beautifully written tales populated with a cast of characters every bit as gritty and complex as the Appalachian landscape that shapes the courses of their lives.”
- Amy Greene Weatherford-Award-winning author of Bloodroot
