Featuring the C. Derick Miller story “Hellfire & Blood”!
The year is 1882, and Jacobia Childress is the best damned narrow-gauge fireman the cotton industry has ever known! A smoky blur between the Greenville gins and the Red River ports, his 2-6-0 Baldwin never fails to meet a deadline. Whispers around Black Cat Thicket say he made a deal in the shadows for his inhuman skills, and mounting disappearances of towns folk along the rails add to the mystery of his success. Money can fill any valley in a coward’s backbone, but legends are paid with hellfire & blood.
