But what makes this movie so effective for me isn't the weirdness of it, but the way it plays on the sense of intense and expected isolation of the characters--by distance, by language, by skin color--of that time period, and shapes their reactions to the threat.
Howard various publishers Robert E. Howard's Texas background bears considerable similarities to my own, including intellectual isolation. Literature was for him and me, like a life raft in a wide, deep ocean of cultural indifference. My style and his are considerably different, but the passion is the same. Much of my work has in one way or another sprang from these sources. In tribute to Howard, I wrote a pastiche of sorts, "The Redheaded Dead," an effort to duplicate his breakneck pace and earthy atmosphere.
I hope I've done him justice. He dabbled in weird fiction too, of the Western kind, including drawing an adaptation of Lansdale's Dead in the West in But my absolute favorite is this rarity from , Secret of San Saba , in which early conquistadors from early Texas discover an unearthly Lovecraftian horror beneath the sagebrush that poops gold. Yes, really. It's been out of print forever, like most of Jackson's work, so if you see it in some dusty bookstore shelf--grab it!
Another debut by a literary heavyweight. Many have at least heard of Ragtime and Billy Bathgate. But, even among those folks, very few would think the man got his start with cowboys. Wait , you say. I know this novel! Maybe so. But how many people have actually read this novel? The story is so spectacular, the humor so amazingly coarse, the character development so rich, that anything short of multiple months atop the bestseller list is a crime.
That might change once the movie is released in a couple years. What happens after is the heart of the story: an exploration of mob rule that still echoes harshly for us even today. Especially today. Not to mention Art Croft is one of the most overlooked narrators in all of literature.
