A long time ago, in this very galaxy, Joe R. Lansdale created a character named The God of the Razor. The God lives in another dimension, most of the time. Certain symbols, certain acts of bloodletting and violence, certain blades - one razor in particular - can open those doors. In this volume you will find a screenplay based on Joe R. Lansdale's novel NIGHTRUNNERS. The screenplay is written with Neal Barrett Jr., and though it was bought for Master of Terror - the series was canceled, and the movie was never filmed. Still - there is the screenplay - written in a style intended to play like a movie in your head.

Along with that screenplay, you'll find three short stories with intros by the author, explaining bits and pieces of the evolution of The God of the'll never look at a razor blade the same way again...

This is one of a series of original screenplays, released as eBooks, from Crossroad Press. Also available is PIGGS - the novel and screenplay, also by Neal Barrett Jr. Coming soon, Killer Green, the novel and Screenplay by David Niall Wilson.
