The Southern Tale Spinner bursts from the North Carolina pines with his third straight victory, Psycho Circus! This collection has the tall task of living up to Woolard’s last two books, and it does not disappoint as it punches out vicious themes of love and death.
Woolard performs his hallmark feats, showing off high-risk maneuvers with bold grisly delight as he catapults the terror to new heights in ten standout stories. Six beautifully brutal poems slice between the tales. Hardcore highlights capture the essence of the cult phenomenon that is the Southern Tale Spinner. The collection too quickly climaxes with the cruelest, the show stealer, the novelette, Heaven’s Healer from Hell.
All the drama, gore, and blood that a transgressive horror fan desires. Emotionally charged, innovative, revolting. Will cut fresh wounds and salt lingering injuries from Woolard’s earlier works. Lives up to every ounce of hype. Another spectacular collection hardwired to make you feel alive.

Our Reviews –
Psycho Circus is not a book that I would normally choose however I recently joined a book club and this was our first read. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found between the pages of this book. The short stories and poems truly blew me away. Almost each of the stories in this book made me think of either the lesson that was hidden in the words or how I would have reacted to the events that played out. I think I thought more about the words written in this book than I do for some books I’ve read that contains one single story. An amazing read by an author that I can’t wait to read more from.
This is not my normal genre however I’m pleased to have read this. I was surprised first off at the short stories by how much I enjoyed them. I’m usually the one getting lost into the story but here the way the words seemed to fall effortlessly onto the page makes you wonder how much harder it is for the author. I saw him being referred to as the Southern Tale Spinner and I have to agree that he didn’t disappoint at anytime. I can’t wait to read more from him.
