The Bottoms may well be Joe R. Lansdale's best novel yet, at home on that small shelf with coming-of-age horrific classics like Stephen King's "Stand By Me" and It, Robert R. McCammon's Boy's Life, or Dan Simmons's Summer of Night. Inspired by the novella "Mad Dog Summer" -- but taken in a very different direction -- this promises to be book which will be read again and again. The Subterranean Press edition will precede the trade edition by six full months, and will be set from the author's original manuscript (over 400 pages) before any editorial changes, offering a version exactly as the author intended!
The Bottoms will be the most lavish Lansdale limited edition by far:
This is one book where the materials will match the quality of the story within.
Don't miss out on a volume that will be the cornerstone of any Lansdale collection, and a treasure for any reader who loves the dark and fantastic.
