I've read most everything Lansdale has written and enjoyed most of it a whole lot - he has a very specific style (most of the time, that is) and the combination of outrageous human comedy with punch-in-the-gut tragedy can work wonders. For his hard-boiled work I'd recommend starting with SAVAGE SEASON. Or one of his short-story collections for a very wide variety of styles. BESTSELLERS GUARANTEED has one of the great genre novellas I've read, "Events Concerning a Nude Fold-Out Found in a Harlequin Romance", and I hope he'd continue with them characters.
