Much of Joe's original writing, dialogue etc has been used to tell the stories, so one can expect to see imaginative, offbeat situations, vivid characters, and sometimes vulgar, but amusing language.
The stories contained within (with a brief synopsis) are:
The Grease Trap ~ something lurks down the drain.
Trains Not Taken ~ strangers on a train.
By Bizarre Hands ~ Halloween, two sheets to the wind.
Night They Missed The Horror Show ~ redneck road trip.
Dead In The West: parts I+II ~ a medicine man's vengeance engulfs a town in the old west.
Tight Little Stitches In A Dead Man's Back ~ Bloom follows boom!
Pilots ~ hunting rubber ducks.
Steel Valentine ~ revenge is a dish best served in a dog bowl
The Job ~ impersonator blues.
Hopefully I haven't spoilt anything with my brief story outlines, but rest assured all of the stories are entertaining.
The artwork is distinctive from story to story, and the book has a few other snippets and galleries (mostly pictures from God Of The Razor).
Personally, I think I prefer just reading JRL's short stories in their original format, without the pictures, but to be honest this was a well put together piece and although I'd read some of the stories before I still enjoyed this..
The book is approximately A4 sized and 300 pages deep.
