Impossible Monsters

Edited by Kasey Lansdale

Signed Hardcover

The Lansdale name is legendary in the horror field. Now acclaimed musician and actress Kasey Lansdale follows in her father’s footsteps, making her editing debut with this anthology of monstrously innovative stories. The twelve creatures that stalk the pages of Impossible Monsters spring from the twisted imaginations of a dozen of today’s most noted authors. International superstar Neil Gaiman is a storyteller’s storyteller, and with ‘Click-Clack the Rattlebag’ he weaves an atmospheric tale that ensures readers will never hear a simple bedtime story the same way again.

In ‘The Glitter of the Crowns,’ New York Times-bestselling author Charlaine Harris, the creator of the Sookie Stackhouse series, turns her attention from vampires to werewolves–but appearances may be deceiving where monsters are concerned.

Mystery legend Anne Perry offers ‘Monster,’ a story that takes the reader from an antiquarian bookstore in Cambridge to the blue seas of the Mediterranean and leaves the reader guessing until the very last page in true whodunit style.

And, of course, this anthology wouldn’t be complete without a contribution from beloved, award-winning author Joe R. Lansdale, who offers the latest adventure of supernatural sleuth Dana Roberts in ‘The Case of the Angry Traveler.’

Including stories by the likes of Al Sarrantonio and David J. Schow, among others, this collection of tales delivers on its promise. Because these monsters are never what the reader expects…

    The days are rushing by faster and faster, it seems.  We’re already into October and I haven’t yet mentioned all the highlights of our travels to London, Dublin, and Belfast in August. One of those highlights, beyond a doubt, was when I was presented with the An Post Irish Book Award in Dublin. The presentation

    I am tickled to report that GAME OF THRONES has taken another award. This time it’s the MTV Golden Popcorn Award. Here’s the list of this year’s winners. http://www.mtv.com/news/3128177/2019-mtv-movie-tv-awards-winners-list/ The trophy just arrived, and it is certainly eye-catching.  (And heavy!)
