It gives us great joy to welcome back Hap and Leonard, the crime-solving odd couple who anchor many of Joe Lansdale’s most beloved novels.

William Shaw is the author of the Breen and Tozer series, mysteries set in London in the late 1960s.

Paradise Sky by Joe Lansdale: The Illustrated Edition

Dec 22, 2015 in Books, Mulholland Authors

Joe Lansdale’s epic, rollicking Western was one of our favorite publications of 2015.

Early next year, we’ll get to experience Nat Love’s adventures in a whole new way when Short, Scary Tales Publications releases […]

A Soundtrack for The Night Charter

Dec 09, 2015 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Music

Music has been a part of Camaro Espinoza’s “life” since the very beginning, and different songs have, for me, come to represent her at different stages in her fictional existence. Whether it be Disturbed’s “Indestructible”—not featured here but essential listening—or White Zombie’s “Thunder Kiss ’65,” Camaro has found some of her inner life through musical […]

A Soundtrack for The Killing Kind

In a recent interview for The Life Sentence, I was asked (by an interviewer who knows damn well that I’m a music geek, on account of she’s my wife) what Michael Hendricks’s theme song would be.

The annual mystery reader extravaganza known as Bouchercon will take place in Raleigh in just three weeks, and our calendars are filling up with riveting panels, award ceremonies, and my personal favorite: “meetings” over BBQ and beers. Once again the Bouchercon programmers have outdone themselves with the convention programming. Mulholland authors will appear on panels […]

Joe Lansdale on How He Came to Write Paradise Sky

Jun 15, 2015 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

In the late 1970’s, I became intrigued with nonfiction material I read about black cowboys and soldiers in the Old West. I was surprised to find that their contribution to the West was much larger than I had been led to believe by general history books, Western novels, and films over the years. The reason […]
