Forthcoming Lansdale: Deadman's Road

Subterranean Press has announced a new Joe Lansdale collection: Deadman's Road.

The announcement:
Seeing as Joe R. Lansdale’s God of the Razor gathering of novel and stories did so well for us, we’ve decided to offer up a similar book, this time featuring Reverend Jedediah Mercer, from Dead in the West.

Deadman’s Road will contain not only the seminal weird western novel, but four other tales of the ruthless preacher in a west that was certainly not covered in the history books. Included will be “Deadman’s Road,” “Gentleman’s Hotel,” the never collected “The Crawling Sky”, and a never-before-published novelette, “The Dark Down There.”

Look for more details and ordering information soon!
Oh. Hell, yes.

Look, I'm a fan of Lansdale's work. I've written about a few of his books, but specifically about Dead in the West and "Deadman's Road". I haven't had a chance to read the other stories, but a collection that pulls together all of these preacher stories AND brings us a new one?

I am so there.
