Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews says Born for Trouble is “like slipping into a pair of comfortable old shoes, which … may also happen to be a little bloodstained.”
Library Journal says, “This is the 20th ‘Hap and Leonard’ book and it’s just as good and fresh as the first, offering high voltage action mixed with down-home humor.” 

Ginger Nuts of Horror says, “This is binge-worthy stuff!”

Ace Atkins says, “Lansdale isn’t just a brilliant storyteller with heart, he’s also funny as hell, with tales of mummified dachshunds, homicidal bookmobiles, and a psychopathic hunt club. [Born for Trouble] is an absolute blast and a gift to all of us devoted fans.” 

Ed Brubaker says, “Joe Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard stories are right up there with Richard Stark’s Parker books to me … Born for Trouble is yet another masterclass in how it’s done.” 

S.A. Cosby says it’s “a road map through 20th-century crime fiction, and your guides are two of the greatest, most intriguing characters ever created, Hap and Leonard. Rambunctious, complex, and endlessly fascinating, these two best friends offer a clear yet sometimes painful view of America in general, and East Texas in particular.”

If you haven’t seen Bubba Ho-Tep, watch it and find out what all the fuss is about!
The documentary All Hail the Popcorn King is highly recommended!
