Silver John wandered the backwoods of America confronting a variety of witches, monsters, and ancient evils in a series of short stories and novels by Manly Wade Wellman.
Wellman wrote stories for various pulp magazines including Wierd Tales and Astounding Stories, comic books and novels. When I was a boy I started digging through my fathers pulp magazines and Silver John was one of the first pulp characters that drew me in.
