Godzilla’s in a twelve-step program. A soul-sucking Mummy stalks Elvis and John F. Kennedy. Joe Bob Briggs has a moral dilemma: If your girlfriend turns zombie on you, what do you do?

And that’s the tame stuff.

In this red-hot collection from world-champion Mojo storyteller Joe R. Lansdale, you’ll find his best, most outrageous stories. The high priest of Texan weirdness does it all: horror, mystery, satire, suspense, and even Westerns. Prepare to be offended, shocked, and cackling like a crazed redneck.

Featuring five Bram Stoker Award winning stories, this career retrospective contains some of Lansdale’s rarer work, his nonfiction forays into drive-in theaters and B-movies, and the novella Bubba Ho-Tep, later made into a cult-classic major motion picture.

Come on in the weirdness is fine.

About the Author:

Joe R. Lansdale is the author of more than thirty novels, including the Edgar Award–winning Hap and Leonard mystery series (Mucho Mojo, Two Bear Mambo) and the New York Times Notable Book The Bottoms. More than two hundred of his stories have appeared in such outlets as Tales From the Crypt and Pulphouse, and his work has been adapted for The Twilight Zone and Masters of Horror. Lansdale has written several graphic novels, including Batman and Fantastic Four. He is a tenth-degree black belt and the founder of the Shen Chuan martial art.

From Booklist:

Indisputably one of horror’s most revered craftsmen, with more than 30 novels and hundreds of stories to his credit, Lansdale sports an idiosyncratic, endearingly profane style. Where else but in a Lansdale story would one find Godzilla in a 12-step program tailored to oversized monsters, or an octogenarian Elvis, confined to a bed in the Shady Grove Convalescent Home, facing down a soul-eating Egyptian mummy? Both tales are in this handpicked best-of collection, about which his fans could only object that its total of 16 stories is far too small. Lansdale’s favored themes run from zombies to vampire hunters to drive-in theaters, and his storytelling encompasses everything from gross-out horror to satire. For the record, “Mad Dog Summer,” about a brother and sister’s tense encounter with a backwoods creature during the Depression, is worth the price of the volume all by itself; and as a bonus attraction, Lansdale includes a rambling, autobiographical essay describing his East Texas boyhood and the many influences on his fiction, from comics to fantasy. --Carl Hays
