More filters. Sort order. Jan 05, Dan Schwent rated it really liked it Shelves: lansdale , hick-lit , i-hate-short-stories. Sanctified and Chicken-Fried is a collection of Joe R. Lansdale short stories.
The cover says The Portable Lansdale. I guess that's true since this is a best-of collection. The stories are a combination of old favorites, like Bubba Hotep and Mr. The short stories are great. Rather than review them all, I'll tell you about Mr. Weedeater has been my favorite Lansdale short story for about a decade now. Job Harold, redneck and all round loser, sees a blind man trimming the yard of the church next door with a weedeater. He tries to help the blind man but the blind man is on the obnoxious side.
Eventually, Job's conscience gets the better of him and he helps the blind man, then lets him relax in his living room. Job's family likes the blind man entirely too much for Job's liking. However, when Job drives the blind man home, his house has burned down and his wife suggests the blind man stay with them. Hilarity ensues. While I enjoyed the hell out of this collection, I couldn't give it five stars for two reasons. First, only one of the stories was brand spankin' new. Second, I would have much rather had two more stories instead of the novel excerpts.
If the collection had included Bestsellers, Guaranteed and the one about the people fighting over the locket containing the Virgin mary's Pubic hair, I would have given it five stars automatically. If you don't have any Lansdale short story collections, this one is the perfect place to start.

Otherwise, read the contents before you buy, although the stories within are good no matter how many times you've read them. View all 13 comments. Nov 01, Laura Jean rated it liked it Shelves: , fantasy , horror , library , short-stories-essays , texas , spv-evaluation. Overall, I enjoyed these short stories. Lansdale is very realistic in his descriptions of historical eras, especially in regard to the racism.
It made me uncomfortable at times, but honestly, that only speaks to his skill as a writer.

His descriptions and similes are beyond compare. He's also got a wonderful sense of humor, dark horrible humor. I was ashamed at myself for laughing during the fight in 'The Pit'. But it was hilarious. I did not enjoy Bubba Ho-Tep as much as the movie, but they were really similar. Nov 09, Kirk Smith rated it really liked it Shelves: southern-literature , short-stories. He does have a sense of humor and he keeps a lot of focus on racial inequality. That is the positive viewpoint, to harsher critics it may seem sexist and racist.
It's about producing the most gritty and shocking short stories, ever. View 1 comment. The story was amusing.
But as I read the other stories, the tone and style grew tiresome. Jun 24, Christopher Coons rated it really liked it. Hilarious, raunchy, profane and some of them downright serious.

This guy is the master of the modern short story. Like all anthologies, some stories are better than others but I highly recommend reading him if you are a Lansdale virgin. The first story should immerse you enough so that you will want read the entire collection. Mar 16, Steven Werber rated it it was amazing Shelves: n-a-buy. This was simply brilliant. Dark, terrible and gothic but brilliant. If you have any triggers this will trigger you, violence, bestiality, torture, racism, racism and racism.
Still, this man can write and tells one hell of a story. This collection includes Bubba-Ho-Tep that the movie was based on. Jan 12, Gretchen rated it it was amazing.
