Rick Klaw

Richard “Rick” Klaw will be appearing at ArmadilloCon 2022! Besides his current tenure as the Publicity Manager and occasional editor for Tachyon Publications, the so-called optimistic curmudgeon Klaw has edited numerous publications, most notably the anthologies The Apes of Wrath, Rayguns Over Texas, and the groundbreaking Weird Business (with Joe Lansdale).

For Tachyon, he’s responsible for the Lansdale Hap and Leonard books and the forthcoming titles Things Get Ugly: The Best Crime Stories of Joe R. Lansdale and Josh Rountree’s first novel The Legend of Charlie Fish.

In the 90s the Klaw-fronted Mojo Press predicated several of the 21st century publishing models.

As a writer, he has provided countless reviews, essays, and fiction for a variety of publications including The Austin Chronicle, Blastr, Moving Pictures Magazine, San Antonio Current, Kirkus Reviews, SF Signal, Geek Dad, SF Site, RevolutionSF, Electric Velocipede, and The San Antonio Business Journal. Many of his writings were collected in Geek Confidential: Echoes from the 21st Century (MonkeyBrain).

In Born for Trouble, edited by Klaw, Edgar Award winner Joe R. Lansdale’s newest Hap and Leonard story collection, Hap and Leonard “are back, with more righteous ass-kickings, highly improbable adventures, and disastrous fishing trips. These never before collected tales showcase the dynamic duo as a little bit older, but not a whole lot wiser.”
