Devil Red -- Joe R. Lansdale
Hap and Leonard are back. Need I say more? I didn't think so, but you know me. I can't resist a few more words. If you're wondering if there's the usual mixture of hilarity, vulgarity, and extreme violence, wonder no more. It's all there put together in the way only Joe Lansdale can do it. Others might try, but Lansdale's the original, and there's just nobody else around like him. He transforms the material into something that's much more satisfying than the sum of the parts, and reading him is a unique experience. That's all you need to know.
