After decades of writing across genres and gathering a dedicated fan base, Joe R. Lansdale finally getting the success he’s deserved for the past three decades, including an upcoming TV adaptation of his Hap and Leonard novels. Eric Benson,writing for Texas Monthly, profiled Lansdale in this fantastic article, “Darkness on the Edge of Town.” Click the link below to read all about Lansdale, his oevre, and his town (Nacodoches). My favorite bit of information: Lansdale is most popular in Italy, where according to the article, his humor translates well. Thank you, Eric Benson and Texas Monthly, for a great article on a truly great Texas writer!
