really liked it
bookshelves: horror
Read from June 13 to 16, 2012

There are lots of Lansdale collections out there and they all have the same problem. They tend to have many of the same stories. I'm beginning to think that the rarest Lansdale collection would be the one that doesn't have "The Night They Miss The Horror Show". However, Electic Gumbo may be one of the better ones for the simple fact it includes a full novel; The Drive-in. Asides from an expected assortment of short fiction there are two essays and two novelettes; which I thought was an obsolete term. Overall, it is a nice sampler for the reader new to Lansdale.
