I wouldn't normally do this, but the trade paperback collection of Dark Horse's Pigeons From Hell adaptation just hit my doorstep. The work was done by Joe Lansdale, who wrote a sequel to the original story, and it's a fine thing, indeed. I mention it because I wrote an essay in the back of the book discussing Robert E. Howard and Joe Lansdale and how they are peas in a pod. I'm particularly pleased with it. If you like the scary, and like Joe Lansdale's work, give this a look. And then, for grins, check out the essay in the back.
