The Best of Joe R. Lansdale

(2010)
A collection of stories by

 
 
By turns absurd, hilarious, and terrifying, this outrageous collection features the best writings of the high priest of Texan weirdness. Horny steam-shovels, odd-ball detectives, malicious rocks, spectral prehistoric fish, and vampire hunters permeate these vividly detailed stories. Featuring cult-classic award-winning tales such as 'The Night They Missed the Horror Show,' 'Mad Dog Summer,' and 'Dog,' along with non-fiction forays into drive-in theaters and low budget films, this dynamic retrospective represents the broad spectrum of Lansdale's career. 'Bubba Hotep' - the tale of Elvis, John F. Kennedy, and a soul-sucking mummy, which was made into an award-winning film - is included along with the acclaimed novella, 'On the Far Side of the Cadillac Desert with Dead Folks,' and never before collected works. Original, compelling, and downright odd, this unforgettable compilation is essential reading for fans of horror, mystery, and southern gothic.
