Captains Outrageous

Joe R. Lansdale: Captains Outrageous (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
Hap Collins and Leonard Pine find mucho trouble, this time in Mexico, when they come face to face with a nudist mobster, his seven-foot strong-arm, a octogenarian knife-touting fisherman, and, somehow, an armadillo.

When Hap Collins saves the life of his employer's daughter, he is rewarded with a Caribbean Cruise, and he convinces his best friend Leonard Pine to come along. However, when the cruise sails on without them, stranding them in Playa del Carmen with nothing but their misfortune and Leonard's new ridiculous hat, the two quickly find themselves drawn into a vicious web of sordid violence. When they return to East Texas, they find that trouble has beaten them back, and when trouble's around it doesn't take long for Hap and Leonard to find it.

Joe R. Lansdale: Captains Outrageous. A Hap and Leonard Novel. Vintage Books, ISBN: 9780307455529 (November, 2009), 336 p., $15.00.

Captains Outrageous

Joe R. Lansdale: Captains Outrageous (USA 2003)

From the Publisher:
A guard at the local poultry plant and on the outs with his lady Brett, Hap is stuck in a midlife rut. Suddenly, a dumb-luck act of rescue earns him and best pal Leonard a cruise down the Gulf to the Caribbean. But soon stranded in Mexico, Hap watches with growing alarm as hot-tempered Leonard buys an ugly hat, gets stabbed by a thug cop, and is saved from armed desperadoes by an old fisherman and his gorgeous daughter. Then things start to get perilous...

Combining a thirst for old-fangled adventure with Lansdale's signature thrill-romping spirit, this novel presents a side of one of fiction's most enduring partnerships that's mellower than before - and more buckwild than ever.

Captains Outrageous

Joe R. Lansdale: Captains Outrageous (USA 2001)

From the Publisher:
Fresh from his most recent fictional triumph, The Bottoms, winner of the Edgar Award for Best Novel and a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year, Joe R. Lansdale brings back Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, the bad ol' boys of his classic novels Rumble Tumble, Bad Chili, and Mucho Mojo. Now feeling the fresh gust of mortality and the biting edge of fighting-mad, the East Texas duo head down Mexico way straight into a pungent guacamole of danger definitely not on the tourist's menu. Hap Collins is stuck in a bit of a mid-life rut.

Spending his days guarding the local poultry plant, he doesn't look forward to going home to his lady Brett, with whom making love has become like twice-ground hamburger without the fixings.

Suddenly, a spontaneous, off-duty act of rescue earns Hap and his best friend Leonard Pine a cruise down the Gulf of Mexico to the Caribbean. But their holiday is short-lived, thanks to a shipboard eruption of Leonard's proud, hot temper. Stranded with Hap in Mexico, Leonard buys an ugly hat, gets stabbed by a thug cop, and is saved from armed desperadoes by a geriatric fisherman and his gorgeous daughter.

Then things get dangerous.

On frighteningly foreign turf, Hap and Leonard wade through a cast bigger than the U.S. army, including a nudist mobster, his seven-foot enforcer, and a hog-raising private eye. Getting way too close to high-echelon corruption and murder, they will find a parcel of trouble following them everywhere. And along the way Leonard may even buy a new hat.

Combining a thirst for old-fangled adventure with the thrill-romping, New West spirit that is the Lansdale brand, Captains Outrageous presents a side of one of today's most compelling fictional partnerships that is mellower than before-and more buckwild than ever.

Joe R. Lansdale: Captains Outrageous. A Hap Collins and Leonard Pine Novel. Mysterious Press, ISBN: 0892967285 (September, 2001), 319 p., $24.95.
