Lansdale's Revenge
For umpty-some years now Joe Lansdale has been terrorizing the book world with radically weird, unsettlingly violent, and often indefinable short stories, novellas, and novels. What happens when he veers toward the mainstream?
Books Story  September 29, 2000, by Mike Shea
"...You know Joe Lansdale, don't you? For umpty-some years now, the East Texas native (and longtime Nacogdoches resident) has been terrorizing the book world with radically weird, unsettlingly violent, and often indefinable short stories, novellas, and novels. And alternately entertaining the hell out of readers with his relatively straightforward Hap and Leonard crime/mystery series and scaring the living daylights out of them with the likes of 1999's Freezer Burn, which features a traveling sideshow whose main attraction is a body encased in a block of ice that might, or might not, be Jesus Christ..."

Screens Story  October 24, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Of all the hundreds of stories that Nacogdoches-based writer Joe R. Lansdale has written in his life -- outrageous horror yarns, gritty suspense novels, crime fiction, oddball Westerns, the popular Hap Collins/Leonard Pine books -- it's a 40-plus-page novella featuring an aging Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) who teams up with a delusional John F..."

Taking the Temperature of 'Cold in July'
The film based on Joe Lansdale's novel, 'Cold in July,' is a gnarled tale of modern horror
Screens Story  May 29, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...When writer/director Jim Mickle started reading Joe Lansdale's novel Cold in July, he expected a by-the-numbers thriller. What he got, instead, pulled not just the rug, but the entire floor out from under him..."

Cold in July
A dream lineup is one of many treats in this East Texas neo-noir based on a Joe Lansdale book.
Film Review  June 6, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Set in East Texas in 1989 (that near-past era before cell phones and DNA testing made mystery plotting a much trickier business), Cold in July is based on a novel by Joe Lansdale, and the screenplay is adapted by director Jim Mickle and his writing partner Nick Damici (who also has an onscreen role in the film). The time period also fits the story’s underlying depiction of various modalities of masculinity...."

After ArmadilloCon
Science fiction convention short on cosplay, big on literary advice
DAILY Books  August 19, 2008, by Richard Whittaker
"...Joe Lansdale, who has seen more options come to nothing than ever pan out, also recommended all aspiring authors taking a big dose of patience juice before they talk to any producer (a point he illustrated with a series of anecdotes abut various time he'd basically been dragged, cussing and swinging, from a pitch meeting by his agent.) On a positive note, Lansdale's working with 2007 Texas Film Hall of Fame inductee Bill Paxton to bring his book The Bottoms to the big screen, and seems up-beat about it...."

A Double Shot of Wry
Author Neal Barrett, Jr.

Joe Lansdale, the boss of East Texas Gothic and an ArmadilloCon regular throughout its now 30-year history, puts it bluntly: "It's not for people in chicken costumes from space," he says, "but people who really read the literature and are interested in the writers and how they create."..."

The Grease Trap
Books Story  September 29, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Twenty years have passed since Nacogdoches native Joe Lansdale published his first novel (Act of Love), and for all the critical kudos and fanatical devotion of a tirelessly loyal readership, the former East Texas tater baron and martial arts master has yet to secure a spot atop (or within) the Times bestseller list. Damn shame, really, since he's as deserving of popular success as any storyteller I can think of, but not all that surprising..."
