The Gospel of Rot (2022)  

A Novel 

The Gospel of Rot is a creative intervention into the Appalachian imaginary, steeped in the southern gothic. It explores lesser-known, idiosyncratic, and historically taboo subjects: Biblical apocrypha, heterodoxy, mysticism, queerness, Cherokee lore, and the weird and the fantastic. It strives to upend and complicate any static conception of the Appalachian experience.
