Night of the Cooters by Howard Waldrop
Hardcover – Ursus/Ziesing – 1990 – 231 pages
The rest of the world may have been a pushover, but when they invade Texas, H.G. Wells’ Martians find they’ve bit off more than they can chew….
Our favorite character actors land roles they were born to play, thanks to the skill of a renegade computer filmmaker….
There’s a bicycle duel to the death atop the newly completed Eiffel Tower while Sherlock Holmes battles Jack the Ripper. Or does he?
These are the visions brought to life by the magical imagination of Howard Waldrop, a writer who has been characterized both as “a national treasure” (Locus) and “the resident Weird Mind of his generation” (The Washington Post Book World). With Night of the Cooters — his third short-story collection — Waldrop once again proves them both right.
Signed, limited edition comes in a custom slipcase and is signed by Waldrop and the eight artists who have art in the book, plus Chad Oliver who wrote the introduction.
