Read full description of the books:
This book did not disappoint.
I'm not sure exactly where The Nightrunners lies in Lansdale's chronology, but that it is one of his earlier works is a frequently-mentioned fact. Although somewhat uneven in style and tone (especially through the middle section), this book is written with such a hunger and raw passion that I can't imagine any fan of Lansdale's horror not loving this one.
The language drips with creativity, and even though the end wasn't as wildly inventive as I expected it would be coming from Lansdale, it still certainly satisfied. Overall a nice mix of vivid imagery, violence and the supernatural.
A 5-star must-read for any true horror fan.
