Twenty years and it appears that Joe R. Lansdale’s novel The Nightrunners still carries some kick to it.
Here’s what Publishers Weekly just said in its starred review: “Lansdale’s The Nightrunners (1987), the centerpiece of this chilling collection, set new standards for the depiction of graphic violence and is probably the best novel of its type between Psycho and The Silence of the Lambs … This upsetting look at the human capacity for evil breaks with crime novel conventions when a supernatural element enters the story in the form of the grotesque deity known as the God of All Things Sharp. Twenty years later, The Nightrunners retains its ability to awe and to horrify. Six short stories that grew out of the novel, one previously unpublished, round out the volume.”
Subterranean Press is publishing The God of The Razor as a companion volume to the Lansdale tribute anthology, Lords of the Razor, featuring a full color cover by Tim Truman, and twenty full page black-and-white illustrations for the short stories and novel by Glenn Chadborne. Stories include The Nightrunners, “The God of the Razor,” “Not From Detroit,” “King of Shadows,” “The Shaggy House,” “Incident On And Off A Mountain Road,” and “Janet Finds the Razor.”
The God of the Razor will be available in two unique editions. Find out more: God of The Razor
