A ravenous cowboy hat-wearing mummy invades a rest home where possibly Elvis and John Kennedy reside, and it’s up to them to protect their home and stop its stealing of souls. A top hat wearing, razor-carrying demon from another dimension is found in an old house. An iconic bear with a taste for sex and mayhem meets an unsuspecting traveler on an airplane. A sentient set of false teeth with an insatiable appetite goes on a rampage. A Halloween monster that folds and fits in the trunk of a very strange car driven by nuns, pursues a carload of smart-ass teenagers. A gunslinger meets a peculiar set of ghosts and werewolves in an abandoned town. A black detective hunts for a lost recording tied to a deal with the devil, blues music, and a Lovecraftian creature with soul-claiming designs. A survivor of a zombie apocalypse hangs Christmas decorations. The ghost of an alien space traveler resides deep underground and can only be stopped by Dana Roberts, an expert at dealing with the supernormal.

These are just a few of the stories in Wet Juju. Horror and weird tales, oddities that cling to the brain, lurk within the pages of this enormous volume of Lansdale goodness. Everything you need for happy nightmares.
