MysteryPeople Presents: JOE R. LANSDALE - Edge of Dark Water

 MysteryPeople Presents
Edgar Award-Winning Author

speaking & signing
Edge of Dark Water.

Joe will be joined at this event by his daughter, Kasey Lansdale,
who will perform music, including a song based on Edge of Dark Water.

With more than twenty books to his credit-and 200 short stories-Joe R. Lansdale is the champion Mojo storyteller. He's been called "the Stephen King of Texas" by Texas Monthly; "an immense talent" by Booklist; "a born storyteller" by Robert Bloch; and The New York Times Book Review declares he has "a folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace."

And here at MysteryPeople? We call Lansdale one thing, plain and simple: Good.

May Lynn was once a pretty girl who dreamed of becoming a Hollywood star. Now she's dead, her body dredged up from the Sabine River. Sue Ellen, May Lynn's strong-willed teenage friend, sets out to dig up May Lynn's body, burn it to ash, and take those ashes to Hollywood to spread around.

Only problem is, Sue Ellen has some stolen money that her enemies will do anything to get back. And what looks like a prime opportunity to escape from a worthless life will instead lead to disastrous consequences. In the end, Sue Ellen will learn a harsh lesson on just how hard growing up can really be.
