Ed Lynskey said: Just finished reading Joe R. Lansdale's Rumble Tumble w/Hap Collins and Leonard Pines as the protags. Lively if not farfetched yarn. Lansdale's action/ fight sequences are well-done. Certainly fits the "country/rural noir" label discussed here. A great rousing read.


thats the only lansdale i've read. as another rare bird remarked to me, "you've got to read more lans- dale." i thought the bantering back and forth between hap and leonard was fun. i don't think lansdale is writing a comedy, but i do think he's writing with a sense of humor.

and, of course, no discussion of _rumble tumble_ is complete without a word for the midget. that poor guy took a hell of a lot of abuse. i'm thinking that lansdale could probably be dragged into politically correct court for all the comic abuse heaped upon this height-challenged individual.
