Joe R Lansdale recommends
thumb
Moonbane (1989)
Al Sarrantonio
"Al Sarrantonio's Moonbane is a stylish B-movie of a novel. Fast paced and poetic, and scary in the old-fashioned sense of such fine B-chillers as The Cat People and I Walked With a Zombie."
thumb
Yellow Moon (1994)
David Searls
"Creepy and atmospheric, Yellow Moon is full of small-town authenticity. It’s like an alternate universe horror version of The Andy Griffith Show."
thumb
Recycled (2003)
(Queen of Denial, book 2)
Selina Rosen
"RECYCLED is one hot SOB. It rocks with writerly rhythm and a beautiful and funny vulgarity."
thumb
Twisted City (2004)
Jason Starr
"Streamlined as a model's hips, dark as the inside of a dog's gut, Twisted City is a hip, white collar update on the James Cain, Jim Thompson style novel with a seasoning of its own."
thumb
Through Violet Eyes (2004)
(Violet Eyes , book 1)
Stephen Woodworth
"One cool idea and Stephen Woodworth makes it work like fine oiled machinery. Full of energy and suspense."
thumb
Eat the Dark (2007)
Joe Schreiber
"Eat the Dark is a tight novel of terror. Well written, fast paced, with a grip like a claw. I loved it."
thumb
The Successful Novelist (2008)
David Morrell
"The Successful Novelist is the vehicle you want if you plan to drive your way to successful fiction."
thumb
Voiceless (2014)
Trent Zelazny
"One of the best new breed of writers."
thumb
Bomb! (2016)
Les Edgerton
"Les Edgerton has swiftly become my favorite crime writer."
thumb
Tropic of Kansas (2017)
Christopher Brown
"A unique blend of Philip K. Dick, Kafka (just a smidgen), and a whole lot of Christopher Brown. Adventure novel meets political satire and the finest elements of realistic sci-fi, and it’s so well written it goes down like a greased eel. It’s hopeful dystopia. What a book."
thumb
A World of Hurt (2017)
(Wilkie John Western, book 1)
Tim Bryant
"If you appreciate a good story and good writing, grab anything Tim Bryant writes and prepare to be hooked and fully entertained."
thumb
The Book of Hidden Things (2018)
Francesco Dimitri
"What a joy to have this in English. Francesco Dimitri's fantastic fantasy novel has everything I like. A sensation of damp shadows moving just out of sight, and a slow, joyful, and mysterious unravelling of events. I can't recommend it too highly."
