Synopsis … Amongst this assemblage are stories that have never been seen before, many of which have appeared in literary journals, magazines, or anthologies, and others that found their way into some of Hess’s novels. Crime stories, all, and most on the Noir side of the spectrum.

The characters and their environs change, but the trouble never ends. They all bring it on themselves, but that doesn’t stop any of them in moments like that. If you know, you know. Even if you don’t, you’ll be riveted by this stellar lineup of heroes and heroines and the damage they inflict.

Critical Acclaim for Pascagoula Run:

“Miscreants and ne’er-do-wells abide front-and-center—Pascagoula Run and Other Stories is an intriguing collection of suspenseful short story gems, many of them weaved with Hess’s deliciously dark sense of character-based humor. I thoroughly enjoyed this potent craft cocktail of nineteen Florida-centric stories blended to savory and spicy perfection.” —John Shepphird, author of Bottom Feeders, The Shill Trilogy, and Deception Specialist

“In this gritty, somewhat crazed collection of short stories Jeff Hess has fashioned a world both boisterous and despairing. These bold novelistic tales are constantly engaging and memorable. Better yet, they are cinematic and pure fun to read.” —Fred Leebron, author of Six Figures, Out West, Welcome to Christiania, and The News Said It Was
