This release includes a brilliant introduction by the author HIS OWNSELF in which he reveals insight into his time writing the book, a rare Lansdale short story “Man With Two Lives” (a great companion piece from the same era as the book), all-new cover art and sketches by fine artist Charlie Bullock, and an afterword by Keith Lansdale on how Joe is like a superhero.

Each hardcover copy will also include:
First published in 1986, THE MAGIC WAGON tells the tall tales of narrator Buster Fogg and the group of traveling merchant marauders he takes up with after his family is killed by a tornado. Their adventures take them through dank caves, across the countryside, and into Mud Creek - an East Texas town that would have made Deadwood look like the Land of Oz.
