RARA-AVIS: Joe R. Lansdale

Following up on the Joe Lansdale talk--I just finished THE TWO-BEAR MAMBO, one of the Hap Collins/Leonard Pine books, where they go to a small town to look for a missing friend and in short order get their asses kicked. It was great, but there was one drawback: I had to restrain myself from quoting some of the great obscenities in it at work.

I'd read IGUANA LOVE, then TWILIGHT AT MAC'S PLACE by Ross Thomas, then this Joe R. Lansdale ... then I was at a party and got to talking about books and someone listed their favourite writers and said, "Oh, but you like *crime* novels." I just shook my head, then let go with a couple quotes from Lansdale.
