Publisher's Summary

From the dusty Great Depression to the far future to the Wild West to the era of big-fin automobiles, soda shops, and double features, as well as dark journey on an icy ocean full of ravenous sharks and a fantastic shipwreck that leads its survivors into a nightmarish Lovecraftian world of monsters and mystery, Joe R. Lansdale returns with a pack of stories for your consumption and enjoyment. 

There's even killer machines, a big ole grizzly bear, and entertaining story notes.

Joe R. Lansdale has been writing novels and stories, as well as screenplays and comics, for over 45 years, and this is his latest concoction, encompassing stories informed by a variety of genres, but not quite comfortably fitting into any of them. The reason is simple.

Joe R. Lansdale is his own genre.

6 stories, 3 stars

As with most short story collections, there is some gold and some tin. In this collection, 3 out of 6 were good, and the 3 that didn't make it to gold were pretty awful IMHO. I generally enjoy Joe R. Lansdale's work ( his book, The Thicket, is one of my all time favorite audio books). I don't think this represents his best work ( except for one story, The Projectionist; absolutely brilliant!)
