Notes: Trade edition. A dark horror novel. Introduction by Dean R. Koontz; illustrated by Gregory Manchess. This is the first book to feature Lansdale's character, the God of the Razor.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a good-only jacket, missing several chips from the edges.
This copy is inscribed, "This is for Neal [Barrett Jr.] who 'may be a major talent' and is highly regarded in the Lansdale household. Best, Joe. Joe Lansdale 6/28/88." Barret marked up the book in pencil while writing his screenplay based on this novel. The script was never filmed, but it was published in 2012 in the anthology, Written with a Razor. A nice association copy between two Texas writers, with Barrett's notes for the screenplay.
Publication: Arlington Heights, IL: Dark Harvest, 1987.
