Act of Love LIMITED
[1881475042]
$69.95 $58.90

ACT OF LOVE.

By Joe Lansdale.

SIGNED LIMITED - ONLY 750 COPIES.

In 1981, Act of Love was published by a then small publishing house called Zebra Books. It was published without fanfare. It was Joe R. Lansdales first novel and it was received with much controversy and a spate of good, if somewhat apologetic reviews.

Since that first appearance, the novel has become something of a milestone for crime and horror fiction of the eighties. It was among the first novels to combine crime, police procedural, horror, mystery, social commentary, and an eye to graphic detail unsurpassed to this day. And if it was not the first, it was certainly the one with the most impact and influence. It was a kind of warning shot that proceeded the rash of graphic fiction to follow, books like Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, "literary" movements like "Splatterpunk," and novels bearing warning labels to potential buyers.

Act of Love, though stylistically surpassed by Lansdales later fiction, is still a book of tremendous power and energy. A pioneer novel paving the way for a generation of writers to come; a tour-de-force and minor classic of crime and horror fiction.

This deluxe limited edition features an Introduction from Andrew Vachss, a new Afterword from Joe R. Lansdale, and wrap-around dustjacket art and interior signature page art from Mark Nelson. Signed by both Joe R. Lansdale and Mark Nelson!
