Trapped in the Saturday Matinee [jhc] by Joe R. Lansdale
TITLE: Trapped in the Saturday Matinee
A COLLECTION by Joe R. Lansdale
PUBLICATION DATE: October 2012
EDITION: Jacketed Hardcover
COVER ART: Alex McVey
PRINT RUN: unsigned
This collection gathers together some early work, which I like, and it also contains stories that I think, for one reason or another, missed their audience. There is also newer material that I treasure, some that has never before been gathered under one roof, and there are others written specifically for this volume.
I love this collection. It’s a mixture of nostalgia and maturity, the reworking of others’ work and the discovery of my own voice.
I like to write introductions as a way of inviting you into my house of stories. But now I’ll leave you to it. Just wander from room to room, and take your time. While you’re here, make yourself at home. But please . . . try not to break the furniture on your way out.
—Joe R. Lansdale
