To Bud and OReta Lansdale. They survived the Great Depression, and their memories of that time inspired many of the stories Ive written, including this one. Thanks to Stephanie Elliott, my editor Krista Vitola, her assistant and Danny Baror, my agent, for their time and help. 1 The wind could blow down a full-grown man, but it was the dust that was the worst.

Dead in the West 1986 by Joe R. Lansdale DEDICATION The original version of this book appeared in ELDRITCH TALES 10-13. It was a tribute to the pulps. Especially WEIRD TALES. This considerably revised version is a tribute not only to the pulps, but to comics like those in the infamous EC line and JONAH HEX the early ones, and perhaps most of all, B-brand horror movies like: CURSE OF THE UNDEAD, BILLY THE KID VERSUS DRACULA, JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEINS DAUGHTER, and the like.

Bullets and Fire A Short Story by Joe R. Lansdale I was asked if I would like to write a really hardboiled story for a magazine, and I thought, why yeah. The story idea popped into my head in a flash. I was trying to write a story that dealt with revenge, and how far anger and the desire for revenge could take you, but mostly what I wanted was to be entertaining. BULLETS AND FIRE is, I hope, just that. Fast paced, dark, redemptive, and full of action. I dont remember a lot about the writing of ...

Deadmans Road A novella by Joe R. Lansdale Copyright 2007 The evening sun had rolled down and blown out in a bloody wad, and the white, full moon had rolled up like an enormous ball of tightly wrapped twine. As he rode, the Reverend Jebidiah Rains watched it glow above the tall pines. All about it stars were sprinkled white-hot in the dead-black heavens. The trail he rode on was a thin one, and the trees on either side of it crept toward the path as if they might block the way, and close up ...

Although movies, music, and certain events listed here did take place in 1958, I have condensed the release dates of some of these to fit my story. Forgive me this transgression. The town of Dewmont and the Dew Drop Drive-in are my creations, and to the best of my knowledge do not exist, and if they do exist, they bear no relationship to my fictional creation. Some parts of this novel are inspired by autobiographical ...
