Bumper Cropby Joe R. Lansdale
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This collection of 26 stories contains some of Joe R Lansdale's favourite and most violent dark horror tales. 'God of the Razor' introduces the dark god behind serial killers. A martial arts fight to the death between a reluctant champion and a sadistic alpha male, is featured in 'Master of Misery'. Human sacrifice, to ensure prosperity or as a coming-of-age ritual, are themes of 'On a Dark October' and 'Duck Hunt'. In 'The Fat Man', young boys learn the hard way that some mysteries should not be investigated. Many of the tales are truly weird, such as 'Chompers', the story of the false teeth with an appetite. All stories are individually introduced by Lansdale, who explains the humorous, weird, and sometimes sad genesis for each.

Average - nothing incredibly original, but they were all short, quirky little stories to pass the time.
This is a great short story read from the Master story teller JOE R. LANSDALE. This is his second 'crop' of short stories in a couple years with a great cover and given a first class treament for these gems. If you haven't heard of Joe by now these short stories will amaze you for starters. Then find his Edgar winning novel 'THE BOTTOMS' and one of his excellent crime duo Hap and Lenonard mysteries and you will pretty much come to the same conculsion most all of us know, Joe's the biggest next big thing waiting to happen and in the meantime he is just giving us fans one knock out after the other. An American treasure trove of some of the best writings in the past 50 or more years! Give this guy a read.
I love Joe Lansdale's sense of horror and humor.
Joe and family never disappoint.excellent
