Hap and Leonard: Savage Season Joe R. Lansdale Signed Limited Edition Hardcover!

We’re very pleased to report we will be receiving copies of the signed Limited Edition hardcover of Hap and Leonard: Savage Season from SST Publications in the UK! Only 270 copies will be produced, so we’re expecting this to be a hot collectible among Joe R. Lansdale fans!

THE FIRST HAP AND LEONARD GRAPHIC NOVEL!

A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem.

Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn’t be more different. Hap is an east Texas white-boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a gay, black Vietnam vet. Together, they steer up more commotion than a fire storm. But that’s just the way they like it. So when an ex-flame of Hap’s returns promising a huge score. Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that’s when things get interesting. Chockfull of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn’t been the same since.

Here are the details of this limited hardcover edition:
– Signed by Joe R. Lansdale & Jussi Piironen on a specially designed signature page
– Limited to only 270 copies worldwide
– Each copy is numbered by hand
– Premium quality archival ink
– Printed on acid-free paper

A: No comment.

Q: Didn’t JJ Abrams have some kind words to share about Gwendy’s Button Box?

A: “Man, I love this story! The whole thing just races and feels so right-sized and so scarily and sadly relevant. Loved the characters… and the sense of one little girl’s connection to the whole world through this weird device. It all just sang.” — JJ Abrams

Q: Are you just messing with us with those last two Q&As?

A: I have no idea what you’re talking about…

Gwendy’s Button Box First Major Review Has Arrived and It’s a Good One!

The first major review of Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar has arrived and we’re thrilled to share what Publishers Weekly thinks of this exciting new novella:

“This absorbing novella by horror giants King (End of Watch) and Chizmar (A Long December) revisits one of King’s most popular locales. It’s 1974 when 12-year-old Gwendy Peterson is offered a magic box by a man named Richard Farris, whom she meets at the top of one of the cliffside Suicide Stairs in Castle Rock, Maine. Farris wears a “small neat black hat” and seems to know just who Gwendy is and what she wants. Eight buttons grace the mahogany box he offers to Gwendy, and a lever dispenses silver dollars and intricate chocolates that Farris claims will help Gwendy lose weight and escape being called ‘Goodyear’ by her classmates. Lose weight she does, but that’s not all. Wonderful things keep happening in Gwendy’s life, and she’s happier than she’s ever been. But when she decides to press one of the buttons, the consequences are horrendous. The novella follows Gwendy through high school and beyond, capturing the golden-hued joy of childhood and the wonder of friendship and first love, all under the shadow of temptation. This bite-size gem of a story packs quite a punch, and the only complaint readers will likely have is that it isn’t longer.”
