As always, Lansdale shows he is the master of every genre he takes on. Jebediah Mercer is a main character that people will love to hate and we shake our head as we still root for him. He’s just enough of a flawed preacher and bastard to make him the perfect anti-hero.
There are zombies here, but the mix of pulp action and the Lovecraft by way of Howard influence sets these apart from your regular fare. This is a read-in-one-sitting novella and well worth your time.
When your done, move on to his more classic westerns like Deadwood Dick and the new Paradise Sky.
