Reviews

Lansdale's tall tales are reminiscent of other western fiction from Thomas Berger's Little Big Man onwards but his original, blackly comic prose gives them new vigour. The Sunday Times A rip-roaring tale completely in keeping with dime novel traditions and the cinematic hyperbole of Blazing Saddles or Django Unchained Los Angeles Times A full-blooded western, served up unapologetically and masterfully...Lansdale is one of those very rare authors who can have his readers howling with laughter during one sentence while bringing tear to their eyes with the next. BookReporter A sweeping Western epic...Lansdale at his funniest and most energetic, with some of the most engaging writing you'll read this year Houston Chronicle Enough guns, glory and goofiness to keep you entertained LitReactor Throughout Paradise Sky, Lansdale the master storyteller gives lessons in corralling point-of-view, tone, plot, irony, character development and just plain old good writing...may well prove to be Lansdale's best Dallas News
