Man With Two Lives

A Novella by

The BookVoice Publishing Pocket Stories series continues with this rare short story from Joe R. Lansdale.

From the story: "It was July the Fourth and Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas, was hung with banners declaring the holiday. The old man read them and continued walking. He was not in a festive mood at all. It was too hot and he was too old. He continued around the square toward the general store.
Yes, too hot and too old, but he kept going full steam ahead, for this was how he had always lived, and he knew no other way.
Sometimes, especially when it was hot he had noticed, he thought perhaps it would have been better had he really died in that saloon facedown on the card table; really been buried in a good hard box in that dark, rocky ground."

"Man With Two Lives" can currently be found in the signed/numbered limited edition hardcover of Joe's THE MAGIC WAGON released in 2018 by BookVoice Publishing. Each copy includes an all-new introduction by Joe, describing his time writing the novel; the "Man With Two Lives" short story; newly-commissioned artwork and sketches by Texas artist Charlie Bullock and more! THE MAGIC WAGON can be purchased here on Amazon or directly from the publisher.
