About this product
- DescriptionWhile working for a rowdy weekly newspaper with ambitions larger than its budget, Todd Morehead captured stories that run the gamut from outlandish to truly bizarre. Featuring a cast of unconventional-and very real-characters, Morehead covers everything from natech and the nuclear industry to elderly mall walkers and Christian secessionists. He recounts a boat trip gone awry while searching for a monkey-inhabited island off the Beaufort, South Carolina coast, takes a morbid stroll with a psychedelic drug enthusiast who adopted a local graveyard, and meets a man who cashed in his lotto millions to start a bikini wrestling show. From urban bass fishing to hanging with Al-Jazeera in a bar to the Machiavellian underbelly of a nudist colony's annual chili cook off, The Order of the Loko is a compelling dispatch from one of the most off-kilter voices to emerge from the Southeast in years. *Also features a section of previously unpublished quasi-fiction and a new introduction from the author.
- Author BiographyTodd Morehead began his career in journalism as a freelance magazine contributor.

He has covered virtually every beat from investigative features to sports writing for a number of newspapers and websites. His reporting was nominated for an Art Schumann Award in 2009. He currently lives in Columbia, South Carolina.
