Bad Intentions

by Joe R. Lansdale and Norman Partridge

Availability: Out of Print

$40.00

Tales of supernatural horror, dark suspense, gruesome irony, and the just-plain fantastic... twisted characters with decidedly different yet all-too-believable viewpoints... places you may have visited but have never seen clearly until now... tough yet strangely poetic prose... in-your-face shocks and nitro-laced plot twists you won't soon forget... two brand new stories, an unpublished original comic script, story notes, and an introduction by multi-talented author Joe R. Lansdale: it's all here in Bad Intentions, the long-awaited first full-length short story collection by Bram Stoker Award-winner Norman Partridge, a writer Stephen King calls "a major new talent."

 

Dust jacket by Ryan Dreimiller.

  • In a small California town, a carnival roustabout takes a one-way road to vengeance behind the wheel of a car once owned by a notorious serial killer.
  • In Hollywood, a struggling actor makes a desperate play for the biggest of scores at a "dead celebrities" costume party.
  • In the Mojave Desert, a musician stalks his own ghost and the devil woman who stole it.
  • In Hawaii, a disillusioned businessman discovers the true power of a myth at a forgotten shrine.
  • In the Deep South, a crazed Elvis impersonator encounters a man who dares to dishonor the King's name.
  • In the Old west, a gunslinging demon battles a witch and a cursed outlaw gang.
