Veil's Visit: A Taste of Hap and Leonard

by Joe R. Lansdale, Andrew Vachss
Released: 1999

Type: other fiction
Genres: thriller

Booklist called them "two of the unlikeliest but most likable amateur detectives in crime fiction." The Chicago Tribune describes them as "colorful... lunatic... like a twister." They're Hap Collins and Leonard Pine, and if you've been reading Joe R. Lansdale's Hap & Leonard novels – like Mucho Mojo, The Two-Bear Mambo, and Rumble Tumble – then this is the treat you've been waiting for. If you're one of the fools who hasn't yet come around, then what you have here is just the antidote to wise you up.

  • "Veil's Visit," an original Hap & Leonard short story co-authored by Joe R. Lansdale and Andrew Vachss, in which Leonard (finally!) gets dragged into court to answer for burning down that crack house.
  • "Captains Outrageous," a novella-length standalone excerpt from Lansdale's next Hap & Leonard novel, not due out until at least mid-2000.
  • "Death by Chili," a brand-new Hap & Leonard short story by Lansdale
  • And Lansdale "interviews" Hap & Leonard – a must if there's ever been one.


  • Introductions by both Lansdale and Vachss!
  • Original story notes by Lansdale!
  • Excerpts from the Hap & Leonard novels, hand-picked by Lansdale himself!

All told, it's over 150 pages of great reading!
