Drawn into the haunted heart of southern Oklahoma by the promise of a mysterious inheritance, conspiracy theory radio show host turned county sheriff Cecil Kotto finds himself thrust into the depths of a horrifying occult mystery.
Witchcraft, corn sorcery, the KKK, wicked temptations, and inhuman horrors from Hell await Sheriff Kotto as he begins to piece together the frightening truth about his long-lost aunt, and his unholy connection to a source of power far greater than anything he could ever imagine.
Alone and straining under the weight of his own paranoia, Kotto must face the true terrors of Little Dixie, Oklahoma: the darkness of the human heart, and the wrath of The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie.
“Magical Remingtons, Cornstalk-men, wild conspiracy theories and eldritch tomes—Raab takes the best of detective stories and weird horror to create something that celebrates the pulpiest of pulp, while examining the serious repercussions of oppression and racism in American history. The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie is a creepy, imaginative, and darkly humorous adventure.”
-Christopher Slatsky, author of Alectryomancer and Other Weird Tales
“It’s all-too-easy for fun stories to sound brainless, or for smart stories to come off as dry. With The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie, Jonathan Raab walks that tightrope, keeping the humor sharp, the action pulpy, the stakes human, and the weirdness weird, without ever stumbling on one side or the other. A rare gift indeed.”
-Orrin Grey, author of Painted Monster & Other Strange Beasts
