Now complete in one volume, two of Joe Lansdale's works: The Magic Wagon and Written With a Razor.

The Magic Wagon:

When the Magic Wagon comes to town, folks get a genuine medicine show that includes a wrestling ape, fancy shooting, and a peek at the petrified body of Wild Bill Hickok himself. They also get bottles of a whiskey-laced elixir to drown their aches and pains. Old Albert drives the wagon, a rawboned youngster named Buster Fogg does the odd jobs, and "champion" trick shooter and fast talker Billy Bob Daniels owns the show.

Billy Bob claims to be the illegitimate son of Wild Bill himself. As storms hover in their wake, our intrepid trio (and one ape) make their way to a Godforsaken hole named Mud Creek, an East Texas town where the dark cloud of fate hovers and violence looms in the shadows...

Written With a Razor:

A long time ago, in this very galaxy, Joe R. Lansdale created a character named The God of the Razor. The God lives in another dimension, most of the time. Certain symbols, certain acts of bloodletting and violence, certain blades - one razor in particular - can open those doors. In this volume you will find a screenplay based on Joe R. Lansdale's novel NIGHTRUNNERS. The screenplay is written with Neal Barrett Jr. The screenplay is written in a style intended to play like a movie in your head.

Along with that screenplay, you'll find three short stories with intros by the author, explaining bits and pieces of the evolution of The God of the Razor...you'll never look at a razor blade the same way again...
