Hap and Leonard
By Joe R. Lansdale
Signed Trade Paperback
A SundanceTV series starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), James Purefoy (Rome), and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men).
Hap and Leonard have never fit the profile. Hap Collins looks like a good ’ol boy, but his liberal politics don’t match. After a number of failed careers, Hap has found his calling: kicking ass.
Vietnam veteran Leonard Pine is even more complicated: black, conservative, gay…and an occasional arsonist. With Leonard on the job, small-time crooks all on the way on up to the Dixie Mafia had best be extremely nervous.
Joe R. Lansdale’s popular Texan crime-fighting duo are immortalized in this complete collection of Hap and Leonard short stories and tall tales. Additionally, you’ll find one brand-new story and an original introduction by New York Times bestselling author Michael Koryta (So Cold the River).
“Seven laid-back adventures, one of them brand new, for “freelance troubleshooter” and good old boy Hap Collins and his gay black Republican partner Leonard Pine. . . . No one currently working the field demonstrates more convincingly and joyously the deep affinity between pulp fiction and the American tall tale.”
“. . . it’s great to have all of these wonderful stories together in one nifty volume”
“East Texas charm, profane wit, and strong characterization, with enough snappy dialogue to keep a smile on your face . . . excellent entertainment, edge-of-your-seat action one minute, gut-busting humor”
