Nacogdoches is home to one of today’s most talented mystery novelists, Joe Lansdale. Since he lives just up the way, Landsdale gets to Houston often, but it's still always a thrill for his local fans when he comes to town. This time Lansdale is here for a discussion and signing session of his latest release, Edge of Dark Water. The action starts with a young woman's body being dredged up from the Sabine River. In life, she had dreamed of going to Hollywood, so her family and friends plan on taking her ashes there. They don't count on the crooked constable and an enthusiastic serial killer standing in their way.
Lansdale has more than a dozen novels to his credit and a bookshelf groaning under the weight of his many awards, including eight Bram Stoker Awards, an Edgar Award and an American Mystery Award.
