High Cotton

Joe R. Lansdale: High Cotton (USA 2005)

From the Publisher:
This collection of Joe R. Lansdale stories represents the best of the "Lansdale" genre. There are tales about a modern gladiator arena, run by fanatics, using Roman methods ("The Pit"), about dark crimes where the "good guys" are bad, and the "bad guys" define evil ("Night They Missed the Horror Show", "Drive-In Date", "Incident On and Off a Mountain Road"), about alternate history, with Buffalo Bill and Wild Bill Hickok as an ambassador and a clerk ("Trains Not Taken"), about a not-so-good Samaritan ("Mister Weed-Eater"), about large lizards ("Godzilla's Twelve Step Program", "Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland"), about a disastrous night out for a trio of lads (Steppin' Out, Summer, '68") and other errie, horrific, and/or amusing themes. With a dash of Twain, a sprinkle of Poe and an innate East Texas ability for story telling, Lansdale's creations are riveting, difficult to put down or to forget. And, as a bonus, all the stories have introductions by Lansdale himself. Cover art by J.K. Potter.

Joe R. Lansdale: High Cotton. Selected Stories of Joe R. Lansdale. Golden Gryphon, ISBN: 1930846177 (July, 2003), 267 p., $15.95.

High Cotton

Joe R. Lansdale: High Cotton (USA 2000)

From the Publisher:
This collection of Joe R. Lansdale stories represents the best of the "Lansdale" genre -- a strange mixture of dark crime, even darker humor, and adventure tales. Though varied in setting and theme, all the stories are pure Lansdale-eerie, amusing, and occasionally horrific. In "The Pit," modern gladiators square off against one another using Roman methods. An alternate-history tale called "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 "Godzilla's Twelve Step Program" and "Bob the Dinosaur Goes to Disneyland."
