It’s become an annual tradition here in October Country to share my Essential October Reads, those works that best capture the essence of the Halloween season for me. This year I’ve asked some of my favorite authors to share their own Essential October Reads with us.
Today we’ll hear from Joe R. Lansdale, author of a multitude of books and short stories in the horror and crime genres, chiming in with an October read that is near and dear to my heart.
Joe R. Lansdale has written for just about every medium imaginable, including comics, films, newspapers and television. Among his best-known works are the “Hap and Leonard” series of books and his recent novel Edge of Dark Water.
