He’s a bestselling author of over 13 (lucky number!) books, all of them written with the express desire to quicken heartbeats and make spines tingle.

Joe Lansdale is a hero of mine and I've been in awe with how seamlessly he's managed to meld them both. I figured it was time I got off my keister and got to work spinning my own yarn of cowboys and terror. (less)

"Really creepy Good Lake Pond Water Horror Stories

I am impressed, the editor picked stories close enough that they could almost be part of one big story, like a “the mythical” bodies of water are all one and the same. All the stories are unique and..." Read more of this review »

“It was one thing to talk about ghosts, quite another to have them messing around with things in the physical world.”
Hunter Shea, Island of the Forbidden

“And just like in his horror movies and books, people did stupid things when faced with overwhelming stress and fear.”
Hunter Shea, We Are Always Watching

“The corner of her mouth curled and she said, "It'd be rude to turn down a chance to drink with a cowboy, now wouldn't it?”
Hunter Shea, Hell Hole

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
