One for the Road by Wesley Southard
WINNER OF THE 2020 SPLATTERPUNK AWARD FOR BEST NOVELLA! "A road trip through Hell in the spirit of Skipp & Spector's The Scream and Grady Hendrix's We Sold Our Souls. I loved it!" -Brian Keene, author of The Rising
Only one more show and heavy metal guitarist Spencer Hesston can finally quit Rot in Hell. No more touring, no more fighting, and no more unwanted advances from the lead singer's girlfriend. But instead of waking up the next day in their Midwestern hometown, the band finds themselves dazed and confused in an abandoned settlement in the middle of the desert, with no idea of how they got there.
Things are done a little differently out here: the trees have perverse urges, the spiders have human fingers, and every time they step outside the town transforms into a new hellish nightmare.
In this town anything is possible, except making it out in one piece...
