High Cotton

Item Details

This collection of Joe R. Lansdale stories represents the best of the #147;Lansdale" genre#151;a strange mixture of dark crime, even darker humor, and adventure tales. Though varied in setting and theme, all the stories are pure Lansdale#151;eerie, amusing, and occasionally horrific. In #147;The Pit," modern gladiators square off against one another using Roman methods. An alternate-history tale called #147;Trains Not Taken" shows Buffalo Bill as an ambassador and Wild Bill Hickok as a clerk. Lansdale's love of large lizards and humor are evident in the stories #147;Godzilla's Twelve Step Program" and #147;Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland."
