Elvis (who faked his death) and John F. Kennedy (who had a post-assassination race transplant) wind up in the same old folks home and have to fight an ancient mummy.
There is no hating this story.
Lansdale's tales cover every possible strata of horror and have brought so much pleasure to my life - and this is one up at the top of the list.
I chose it because I'm always surprised by how many people who should know better are unaware of this gem of a tale - or of the can't-miss Don Coscarelli (Phantasm) movie version staring Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis.
If you somehow don't know Lansdale, lighter fare like this might be the place to start, then work you way through darker stuff like "God of the Razor" and on to the deadly serious material like "The Night They Missed the Horror Show."
Then start treating yourself to his novels.
