Not only has the acclaimed film version been included on numerous best of 2014 lists, but the re-issue of Joe R. Lansdale’s classic Texas noir Cold in July garnered many mentions as well.
Content-wise, I didn’t write very many reviews this year. That is definitely something I need to fix in 2015. That being said, my stand-out, Top Distraction of 2015 [sic] is easy to pick this year:
This book has everything I love by one of my favorite authors.
One of my favorite writers saw one of his novels re-released to coincide with the premier of its film adaptation. If you like revenge tales, you need to read this novel. One fateful home invasion forever alters the lives of two fathers. Seriously, read it.
For its unpredictable nature and its perfect blend of genres. An inimitable novel from an inimitable author.
