The Strange Air Saga
A Book Series By Erick Mertz
Way out in Canyon County, Oregon, shadows seem to cast just a little longer.
Maybe it’s the way the sun rises over Tallow Creek. Maybe it’s how shafts of summer dusk light spill out from behind the jagged peaks of the Cascade Mountains.
Or maybe it’s something deeper still, something long ago buried out in the sage grass that is only now simmering to the surface.
What took place around the burned out mill town of Josephine in the early-1980’s is one of countless untold chapters in the story of the American west. It is but a tiny, haunted sliver of a larger saga that began long before any one living there now can remember.
Taking place in a world teeming with glassy eyed drifters, stoic rancher, heavy-pouring bartenders, and a few honest cops, The Strange Air Series of supernatural mysteries explores the unfurling of a long held cosmic secrets that threaten the rusted out husk of the American dream.
