Synopsis: These short pieces, are, like The King and Other Stories, a collection of easy to read stories and articles that are designed to be treats for my readers. Nothing to hurt the head, but perhaps something to make you smile, or even think a little--but not too much.
The stories in The King were all pretty much pulp and absurdist pieces. This collection contains a few stories of weight, even though they are short.
The bottom line is they are designed for immediate consumption, the perfect kind of story for the busy day. Because, if you're like me, even on my busiest day, I like to find a few moments to read, even if it's only a chapter from a novel, a scene I've enjoyed reading before, a short story, or, what we used to call short-shorts. The articles though a little less flash like, are still quick reads and are probably best appreciated by those who like to read about writing and writers.
Again, I thank all of you who have bought my short story collections and novels and comic books. Stay with me. I keep having new stories come to visit all the time. They're friendly, and they like to meet other readers other than me. Here are a few of the friendlier ones. They aren't complex friends, but you couldn't find any more well meaning than these.
From Publishers Weekly:
Horror Grand Master Lansdale (Sanctified and Chicken-Fried) serves up a mishmash of essays and short fiction in his usual unapologetically cheerful style. Just Do It and Typewriter Mystique, the Bull of It offer advice to new writers, while four other essays explore the work of classic fantasy and science fiction authors. The short fiction ranges far and wide, from bleakly obsessive Coat, wherein a fashion faux pas leads to murder, to the silly Jack's Pecker, about a prodigal penis gamboling across Europe. From the arch and nasty epicurean fantasy of Dragon Chili: From the Grand Church Cookbook to the unrelenting darkness of Surveillance and Rainy Weather, Lansdale's stories are deliberate and ironic, invested with inevitability. A must for Lansdale completists, this short collection is also a nice introduction to this unique author's work. (Nov.)
