The World Horror Convention recently made him the recipient of the 2007 Grand Master Award for contributions to the field of Horror fiction.

Kevin The creator of this list should have the non-Lansdale books removed. I hate when people are disrespectful!


message 2: by Reader453 (new)

Reader453 I believe those are all anthologies or graphic novels he's worked on.
