SANCTIFIED AND CHICKEN FRIED: THE PORTABLE JOE LANSDALE.
Southwestern Writers Collection Series.
By Joe Lansdale.
Introduction by Bill Crider.
OVERVIEW: Master of mojo storytelling, spinner of over-the-top yarns of horror, suspense, humor, mystery, science fiction, and even the Old West, Joe R. Lansdale has attracted a wide and enthusiastic following. His genre-defying work has brought him numerous awards, including the Grand Master of Horror from the World Horror Convention, the Edgar Award, the American Horror Award, seven Bram Stoker awards, the British Fantasy Award, Italys Grinzane Prize for Literature, as well as Notable Book of the Year recognition twice from the New York Times. Sanctified and Chicken-Fried is the first "true best of Lansdale" anthology. It brings together a unique mix of well-known short stories and excerpts from his acclaimed novels, along with new and previously unpublished material. In this collection of gothic tales that explore the dark and sometimes darkly humorous side of life and death, youll meet traveling preachers with sinister agendas, towns lost to time, teenagers out for a good time who get more than they planned on, and gangsters and strange goings-on at the end of the world. Out of the blender of Lansdales imagination spew tall tales about men and mules, hogs and races, that are, in his words, "the equivalent of Aesop meets Flannery OConnor on a date with William Faulkner, the events recorded by James M. Cain." Whether youre a long-time fan of Joe R. Lansdale or just discovering his work, this anthology brings you the best of a writer whom the New York Times Book Review has praised for having "a folklorists eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteurs sense of pace."
