Did you sit glued to the TV watching "The Lone Ranger," "Maverick," "Bonanza," "The Wild Wild West," "The Adventures of Brsico County Jr.," and "Firefly"? And were you caught up in movies like "Outlands," "Time Bandits," "Serenity," or "Back to the Future Part III"?
If so, "Westward Weird "is the book for you. Thirteen original stories included here ride a very broad range between science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal--and all of them are told from a Wild West perspective.
Get ready for some good old-fashioned adventure, like:
The Old Gods cross paths in the Old West.
Two theives are given a job they can't refuse, but no one told them there'd be aliens.
A mining family never expected their claim to be jumped from parallel universes.
A Mars colony may be about to find out extactly how the West was won.
Cowboys will be hard-pressed to ride the herd on the living dead.
