Though he occasionally wrote for periodicals, after 1904, Fox dedicated much of his attention to fiction. The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come (published in 1903) and The Trail of the Lonesome Pine (published in 1908) are arguably his most well known and successful works, entering the New York Times top ten list of bestselling novels for 1903, 1904, 1908, and 1909 respectively.

Fox visited Letcher County, Kentucky in 1898 and was the inspired setting of these two works. In The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, the character Devil Judd Tolliver, was based on the real life of Devil John Wesley Wright, the sheriff of Wise County, Virginia. [ Many of his works reflected the naturalist style, his childhood in Kentuckys Bluegrass region, and his life among the coal miners of Big Stone Gap, Virginia. Many of his novels were historical romances or period dramas set in that region. John Fox, Jr.

died in 1919 of pneumonia in Big Stone Gap, Virginia and was buried in the family plot in Paris, Kentucky. His marriage to Austrian opera singer Fritzi Scheff in 1908 lasted just over four years.
