The Magic Wagon

by Joe R. Lansdale

New Introduction by Joe Lansdale, HIS OWNSELF.

Includes a rare short story from the 1980s, THE MAN WITH TWO LIVES.

Afterword by Keith Lansdale.

Signed by Joe Lansdale.

ARCHIVED and SEALED in an acid-free protective book cover upon receipt here and then sealed in plastic for complete archival protection.

THE MAGIC WAGON has endured since 1986 as a celebrated classic Western and this beginning of a legend is now available as a signed and numbered edition, limited to a single printing of 500 hardcover copies.

This release includes a brilliant introduction by the author HIS OWNSELF in which he reveals insight into his time writing the book, a rare Lansdale short story “Man With Two Lives” (a great companion piece from the same era as the book), all-new cover art and sketches by fine artist Charlie Bullock, and an afterword by Keith Lansdale on how Joe is like a superhero.

Each hardcover copy will also include:

  • a special author’s signature page bound inside the book.
  • all-new front cover artwork and inside sketches by artist Charlie Bullock.
  • a new introduction by Lansdale in which he describes his time writing the novel and how he “gradually develop[ed] a method of writing that worked” for him.
  • the rare Western short story “Man With Two Lives” by Lansdale.
  • full-color glossy dust jacket.
  • printed on thick 60# acid-free paper.
  • bound in Pearl Linen® cloth and Smyth sewn for a sturdy binding.
  • limited one-time printing of this Literary Treasure.

First published in 1986, THE MAGIC WAGON tells the tall tales of narrator Buster Fogg and the group of traveling merchant marauders he takes up with after his family is killed by a tornado. Their adventures take them through dank caves, across the countryside, and into Mud Creek - an East Texas town that would have made Deadwood look like the Land of Oz.
