5/3/2001 Lansdale gets an Edgar
May 3, 2001. Joe R. Lansdale is laving a pretty good year, what
with his Hap and Leonard novels being made into an excellent TV series
on Sundance TV. But one can assume he has fond memories of this date as
well, when the Mystery Writers of America named a non-series book, The Bottoms, as the best novel of the year. It also won the Herodotus Award for Best US Historical Mystery Novel.
