Racism and poverty in early 20th century Florida, the wildness of a jungle-like forest, movie monsters and myths. Lots of dialect and idiom ("That boy's mean as a sack a'snakes."), executed perfectly to my ear. Beautifully written story about people's most powerful feelings. Looks like the whole thing is up for free on Tor. It's about character and mood more than plot, so read it when that it is what you are looking for.

i really liked that. Barely genre at all, but very well done.

I am glad you liked it. I think I enjoyed it especially because I started reading with absolutely no expectations whatsoever; I had heard nothing about it, and I have never heard of the authors. It will be interesting to read it again in a year, and see how I react then.
