|Lansdale delivers a collection of three novels of anarchy, aliens, and the popcorn king, each set during a Friday night at the Orbit Drive-In. Part dark comedy, part horror show, Lansdale''s cult Drive-In books are as shocking and entertaining today as they were 20 years ago.|
Dividing his fictional output between westerns, mysteries, and exceptionally graphic horror (and often a combination of some or all of them), Joe R. Lansdale is devotee of what he calls Mojo storytelling--which seems to mean the ability to translate the subversion of expectations and being born in Texas into a fictional format. His first novel, ACT OF LOVE (1981), was a thriller, but its graphic intensity immediately set it apart from conventional thrillers. His next novels--THE NIGHTRUNNERS (1983), another thriller, TEXAS NIGHT RIDERS (1983), a western, and DEAD IN THE WEST (1986), a horror/western hybrid--were interspersed with numerous short stories. THE DRIVE-IN (1988) was a gruesome homage to horror, science fiction, and the bygone American pastime of the drive-in theater. In 1990, Lansdale wrote a mystery, SAVAGE SEASON, which was the first of a series. He has written a Tarzan tale "with" the late Edgar Rice Burroughs, novels in the Batman series, and even helped develop a graphic novel character, Jonah Hex. Lansdale's work has won numerous awards and he has been twice inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame (so don't mess with him!).
