Title: Leftover Slaughter
Author: Wilder, Samuel Zeb Shook
Abstract: The stories in Leftover Slaughter take place in the mountains of Northwestern North Carolina, around Banner Elk, Matney and Valle Crucis. The themes weaving the pieces together include regional pride, ownership of land and immovability. My protagonists are exclusively male and their conflicts arise from opposing ideologies and natural phenomenon. While almost all the stories are set in the present or recent past, I worked to achieve a timeless quality to highlight the stubborn, resistant ascetic nature of the region.
