Read Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers Online Free - Subterranean Press is thrilled to announce the novel-length prequel to the classic story, "Bubba Ho-Tep."
Before Bubba Ho-Tep, there was Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers. Part of a secret government organization designed to protect civilians, Elvis Presley and a handful of hardcore warriors set out to save the world from an invasion of hive-minded, shape-shifting vampire-like creatures from a dark dimension who have taken up residence in a New Orleans junkyard. Besides Elvis, among these righteous warriors is a hammer-wielding descendent of John Henry of railroad fame, a Blind Man who sees more than those with sight, Jack, a strategic wizard, and Elvis's right hand man and journal writer, Johnny, all thrown in with Raven (real name Jenny) a female recruit who is also a budding pop star, and like Elvis, high on the charisma chart. Their leader is none other than Colonel Parker, Elvis's cutthroat manager, and a warrior himself, directly in contact with President Nixon, or possibly one of his doubles.It's an unnerving peek into a secret world, and a possible delusion. It's what happened before Elvis, aka Sebastian Haff, found himself in an East Texas rest home, mounted on a walker, fighting an Egyptian mummy and worrying about a growth on his pecker. Strange monsters, wild fights, sex with a beautiful ghost, a drug-induced trip into another dimension, and all manner of mayhem ensue, along with a Mississippi riverboat ride on a giant paddle wheel, and of course, there will be 3D glasses, fried peanut butter and 'nanna sandwiches, and a few hard working zombies.Bring the kids, but plug their ears and blindfold them. This is one wild and nasty ride to the dark side, but with laughter.

My expectations were perhaps too elevated in the desire to read and enjoy “Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers” by Joe R. Lansdale. A number of years ago, perhaps almost 20 years now, when Mr. Lansdale published the original novella “Bubba Ho-Tep” and then the wonderful film of the book appeared a...

In the early 1070's, Elvis and his team of monster hunters go up against bloodsuckers from another dimension.
While Hap and Leonard are the Joe Lansdale creations I enjoy the most, the really weird stuff like Zeppelins West are what brought me to the dance. When this came up on Netgalley, I couldn...

I received an advance copy of this from NetGalley for review.
Elvis and horror go together like a peanut butter-n-banana sandwich. Which is to say that it catches your attention, but it might not be something you’d want to make a regular part of your diet.
This is a prequel story to Lansdale’s Bubb...

With a title like BUBBA AND THE COSMIC BLOOD-SUCKERS and an author like Joe Lansdale, how could anyone not want to read this book? Throw in the fact that this is the prequel to the awesome story BUBBA HO-TEP, and how could I refuse?
I've never seen the film of BUBBA HO-TEP, but I loved the tale wi...

In hindsight, as much fun as the Bubba Ho-Tep movie was, I realize I enjoyed it more for Bruce Campbell's performance than the story itself. It was fun, but not enough to drive me to seek out Joe R. Lansdale's original story.
Having said that, Bubba and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers has a lot of things...

"...just to the left of reason, off the highway of common sense and into a rest spot for the weird..."
One of Subterranean‘s most glorious book covers... but I didn’t like it much.
Lansdale is a piss, shit, fart, slime, goop author. Like Pig-Pen all grown up with a word processor and a rabid ne...

Definitely not Lansdale's best work.

Do you ever dream that the life you're dreaming is someone else's life?
Do you wonder if you're a figment of someone else's imagination and that all you do has not been done at all, that you could be a creation brought about by trapped gas, that you could be the result of poorly digested green bea...

"From now on he felt there would always be a hole in his head from which the logic fled."
Bubba and the Cosmic Blood Suckers is a prequel to the somewhat infamous Bubba Ho-Tep, a book I'm yet to read but is in my TBR pile. Focused around Elvis, his manager The Colonel, a person assistant (sort of...

Highly imaginative world in which I couldn't tear myself away from the pages. Love it from the beginning! I went in with an open mind and found it to be a refreshing change from the normalcy. Okay, I know what you're thinking, "Elvis Presley, in a sci-fi novel? Really?" Really! This author is bri...
