The iconic Texan crime-fighting, bigot-bashing duo meet in this companion to the breakout Hap and Leonard TV series

As a liberal young man in East Texas, Hap Collins is discovering his passion for two-fisted justice in a redneck world. Leonard Pine—black, gay, and the ultimate outsider—is already fighting his own battles against racists and bullies. So when Hap sees Leonard demolishing an angry mob with his fists (and taunts), it’s immediately clear that these two young men have a lot in common.

Discover Joe R. Lansdale's compelling coming-of-age manifesto alongside the second season of the Sundance TV Hap and Leonard series starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), and James Purefoy (The Following).

Soon to be a television miniseries starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), James Purefoy (Rome), and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men).

Hap and Leonard don’t fit the profile. Any profile.

Hap Collins is complicated. He looks like a good ’ol boy, but his politics don’t match. After a number of careers, Hap has discovered that what he’s best at is kicking ass.

Vietnam veteran Leonard Pines is even more complicated: black, conservative, gay, and an occasional arsonist. Well, just the one time.

As childhood friends and business associates, Hap and Leonard have a gift for the worst kind of trouble: East Texan trouble. And the Dixie Mafia and small-time crooks alike had best be extremely nervous.

Prepare to meet the wicked progeny of the master of modern horror. In Lovecraft's Monsters, H. P. Lovecraft's most famous creations appear in all their terrifying glory. Each tale is a gripping new take on a classic Lovecraftian creature, and each is accompanied by an original illustration that captures the monsters' unique visage.

In the century since H. P. Lovecraft published his first story, the monstrosities that crawled out of his brain have become legend: the massive, tentacled Cthulhu, who lurks beneath the sea waiting for his moment to rise; the demon Sultan Azathoth, who lies babbling at the center of the universe, mad beyond imagining; the Deep Ones, who come to shore to breed with mortal men; and the unspeakably-evil Hastur, whose very name brings death. These creatures have been the nightmarish fuel for generations of horror writers and the inspiration for some of their greatest works.

Legions of Lovecraft fans continue to visit his bizarre landscapes and encounter his unrelenting monsters. Now join them in their journey...if you dare.
