OUT THERE IN THE DESERT
Out there in the desert,
I had a sock puppet,
LATE AT NIGHT
I heard them late at night,
Who has my hat?
Tombstones are not pillows,
BLOOD WILL WASH
Blood will wash down the drain,

EDGE OF DARK WATER: May Lynn was once a pretty girl who dreamed of becoming a Hollywood star. Now she's dead, her body dredged up from the Sabine River.
Sue Ellen, a strong-willed sixteen-year-old yearning for something greater than what she's been given, decides to take May Lynn's ashes to Tinsel Town and place them on her favorite actor's grave. It's the least Sue and her friends can do for May Lynn. But first, they have to figure out how to get there.
ALL THE EARTH, THROWN TO THE SKY: Jack Catcher's parents are dead—his mom died of sickness and his dad of a broken heart—and he has to get out of Oklahoma, where dust storms have killed everything green, hopeful, or alive. When former classmate Jane and her little brother Tony show up in his yard with plans to steal a dead neighbor's car and make a break for Texas, Jack doesn't need much convincing. But a run-in with one of the era's most notorious gangsters puts a crimp in Jane's plan, and soon the three kids are hitching the rails among hoboes, gangsters, and con men, racing to warn a carnival wrestler turned bank robber of the danger he faces and, in the process, find a new home for themselves. This road trip adventure from the legendary Joe R. Lansdale is a thrilling and colorful ride through Depression-era America.
DEVIL RED: In Lansdale's rollicking eighth Hap and Leonard novel (after Vanilla Ride), the East Texas crime-fighting duo, Hap Collins (white and straight) and his partner, Leonard Pine (black and gay), look into a two-year-old unsolved murder.
