Kyler Alvord at COLLEGE MAGAZINE includes Joe R. Lansdale among 10 Authors That’ll Scare The Most Fearless Readers.

While Joe R. Lansdale’s stories cover every scenario from vampire cults to prostitution rings, elements from his personal life always creep onto the pages of his books. Lansdale is a Texas native with a passion for martial arts; his most famous characters, Hap and Leonard, are notorious for using martial arts while solving mysterious crimes in Texas. Coincidence? I think not. These characters, featured in nine novels and two novellas, are also the inspiration for SundanceTV’s television series Hap and Leonard.
