On July 13, Champion Mojo Storyteller Joe R. Lansdale will be at the Galaxy with his daughter Kasey for their co-authored book Terror Is Our Business: Dana Robert’s Casebook of Horrors, “a short story collection showcasing the new dynamic duo of supernatural sleuthing, Dana Roberts and her sidekick Jana!” Joe is a prolific writer, having authored several dozen novels and many short stories, in addition to work in comics, TV, and film. Three seasons have aired so far of the unorthodox Hap and Leonard crime television series, set in 1980s East Texas setting, and acclaimed for "the friendship between its leads. Hap Collins is white, a hippie, and a hopeless romantic, while Leonard Pine is a conservative, black, gay Vietnam veteran. They bridge that ideological divide through trust and respect, a lesson that — again — feels timely in a very modern sense.” -- Allison Keene
It’s not every day that a small-town Texas girl gets to record with Grammy Award-winning producer John Carter Cash, who has produced legends such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, and Willie Nelson, but country-blues artist Kasey Lansdale is the exception. With multiple songs appearing in television and film, Lansdale now lives in Los Angeles and spends her time writing music and fiction, including appearing at the San Diego County Fair in June.
This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy. Event purchases through Mysterious Galaxy not only keeps our bookstore doors open, but also makes author signings possible.
