The Senior Girls Bayonet Drill Team by Joe R. Lansdale

Joe R. Lansdale's new collection, The Senior Girls Bayonet Drill Team and Other Stories, is all over the place, including tales of crime, fantasy, horror, and the weird west as only hisownself can depict them.

That variety is reflected in Publishers Weekly's recent review:

“Among the highlights is the taut and chilling ‘The Hungry Snow,’ told from the perspective of an ostensible man of God who winds up trapped in a cave in the Rocky Mountains with a group of starving people who are under threat from a mythological creature. In ‘Hats,’ another standout, a chance decision to enter a hat store changes a man’s life.”
