This short novel, a signed, limited-edition Lansdale, is a beautiful and dark story of a boar that has more in common with Moby-Dick than with Babe. The Boar takes place during the Great Depression in the Sabine River Bottoms of East Texas, and Lansdale evokes the stark beauty of the time and place, as well as the hunger within the bellies of the folks involved. Old Satan, as the boar is less-than-affectionately nicknamed, proves to be a metaphoric lightning rod for Richard Harold Dale, who becomes a man at 15 in 1933 and embarks on the journey of his life. This gorgeous edition, limited to 500 copies, is signed by Lansdale and should not be missed by mystery fans who collect classic Lansdale.
