“Joe Lansdale is a born storyteller.”
—Robert Bloch, author of Psycho

Blood in the Gears is the second in a four volume set of stories by Joe R. Lansdale. Each, as best is possible, covers a certain branch of his career. While none of the volumes neatly fit into a box, this volume attempts to point to those stories of his that contain the elements of crime, mystery and suspense. Some of them are creepy, some bloody, some strange, all powerful and unique. Well know stories and lesser known tales rub shoulder to shoulder here, and when they do, the friction causes blood to drip into the story gears. These are the results of the raw and contradictory elements of flesh, and blood, and bones that make up the human machinery.
