Happy Birthday Joe R. Lansdale!

This coming Wednesday is Joe R. Lansdale's birthday. To celebrate, I'll be posting a weeks worth of creatures   from Lansdale's Dead In the West series. Lansdale is probably most famous for having penned the story behind Bubba Hotep but his range is wide and his is staggering. A master of the southern horror, comedy, crime and basically anything else he tries his hand at, Lansdale's love of Americana and characters drives his stories. His genre bending novel Cold In July was recently made into a movie of the same name by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici (the same team behind Stake Land, We Are What We Are, Mulberry Street and the upcoming series Hap and Leonard, which is also based on Lansdale's writing!)
