This collection of Joe R. Lansdale stories represents the best of the “Lansdale” genre—a strange mixture of dark crime, even darker humor, and adventure tales. Though varied in setting and theme, all the stories are pure Lansdale—eerie, amusing, and occasionally horrific. In “The Pit,” modern gladiators square off against one another using Roman methods. An alternate-history tale called “Trains Not Taken” shows Buffalo Bill as an ambassador and Wild Bill Hickok as a clerk. Lansdale’s love of large lizards and humor are evident in the stories “Godzilla’s Twelve Step Program” and “Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland.”
Industry Reviews
"A terrifically gifted storyteller." --Washington Post Book World "Lansdale is an immense talent. His ability to generate sidesplitting laughter and gut-wrenching terror on the same page is unique in modern fiction. There's something special going on here, and it ought not be missed." --Booklist "...shows that the popular Texas author, perhaps best known for his mysteries featuring Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, is equally adept at his own peculiar and often amusing brand of dark short fiction...This is a must for Lansdale fans and collectors." --Publisher's Weekly
