Joe Lansdale

Well known and loved for his Texas Mojo storytelling style, Joe R. Lansdale is the author of more than twenty novels and two hundred short works, including Act of Love, The Nightrunners, Cold in July, Savage Season, The Bottoms, and the “Hap and Leonard” and “Drive-In” series of novels, as well as scripts for both comics and film. Two of his stories, the cult classic Bubba Ho-Tep and Incident On and Off a Mountain Road, have been adapted for film. He has had the honor of being chosen to complete an unfinished Tarzan novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, one of the founding authors of the sword and planet genre, published in 1995 as Tarzan: The Lost Adventure. Lansdale has also been a student of the martial arts for more than thirty years—learning how to take a punch being a self-admitted ingredient of good Mojo storytelling—and he is a two-time inductee into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame. He has won the Edgar Award, the British Fantasy Award, the American Mystery Award, the Grinzane Cavour Prize for Literature, the International Horror Guild Award, and nine Bram Stoker Awards, and in 2007 he was named a Grand Master of Horror. Most recently his novel Paradise Sky has won the Spur Award from the Western Writers of America organization. He has also been inducted into the Texas Literary Hall of Fame.

Subterranean Press and Lansdale have been working together since 1997, when SubPress published Texas Night Riders, a novel Lansdale had originally published under the name Ray Slater. Subterranean Press has published over 50 works with Lansdale to date. Most recently released is Driving to Geronimo’s Grave and Other Stories, a collection of six stories.
