Foggy Mountain Breakdown is the first-ever collection of Sharyn McCrumb's short fiction. It is a unique blend of chilling tales of suspense with compelling and humorous narratives that embrace the southern Appalachian locales and themes of McCrumb's acclaimed ballad novels.

This collection of seven wild tales, in addition to the title story - an edge-of-your- seat, coming-of-age suspense tale - includes two ghost stories, Remains to Be Seen and An Autumn Migration, and the wryly murderous correspondence of Gentle Reader. The readers, as diverse as the stories themselves, include CSI: Miami's Rex Linn, Emily Janice Card, Margy Moore, and Moira Quirk, and award-winning narrators Gabrielle de Cuir, Carrington MacDuffie, and Stefan Rudnicki.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laird Baldwin | 2/2/2013

    " Two women I work with insisted I read this to better understand Appalachian culture. A lot of between the lines stuff, set often in the Smokeys just South of Gatlinburg, TN. The area near Cades Cove. Charmingly written and it does allow much insight, in case you thought you knew it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Weidinger | 7/28/2012

    " The elegiac southern memoir, the astringently ironic anecdote, the updated folktale...exploring the quicksilver border between mystery and magic. Chilling tales of suspense with compelling and humorous narratives that embrace the southern Appalachian locales... "
