Thank you for the post, I had just read the article a couple of hours ago. But, I needs to be shared as I look forward to the show.

"Filmed in Baton Rouge, "Hap and Leonard" has ample atmosphere, even if East Texans will probably bristle at the idea that Louisiana is interchangeable."

Boohoo say those of us who live in "New York is not Toronto"..... LOL

I will check it out - I'm not familiar with Mr. Lansdale's writings but you always seem to speak highly of him and that's a pretty good recommendation!

Now somebody has to get your books adapted!

That'll be the day.

I am familiar with Lansdale's work, and to many he is a true, major storyteller.

He had a couple of characters in two or so continuing series; Hap & Leonard tales are to date probably the continuation that's most long-standing.

Someone described: Clive Barker crossed with work like Douglas Adams. If the two writers got together and had offspring [or some similar comparison] that would be Joe R. Lansdale...

He is really good.

True, when will Crider books get an offer for adaptating? Many series have an easygoing humor and style a bit like Lansdale's storytelling...

read: _for adapting_

Joe tells me that when he's a rich and powerful mogul, he's going to get my books adapted. I'm waiting patiently.

I guess we should not hold our breath.

Truth is, your series and the Dan Rhodes books, and Joe's books are known to many - I think the popularity can only grow.

Breath-holding would definitely be a mistake.
