Description

BAEN'S WEIRD WESTERN FANTASY AND HORROR ANTHOLOGY SERIES BECOMES A TRILOGY!

THE WEIRD WILD WEST IN ALL ITS GLORY. . . AND GORY!

It’s the final showdown between heroes and darkness in the Old West. Humans versus monsters. Supernatural beings versus greater evils—with a dinosaur or two thrown in for fun. Come explore the untold myths of the west—but no dying on the trail!

Joe R. Lansdale takes us on a train ride of the damned in hopes of rescuing one innocent soul. Mercedes Lackey’s duty-bound man races to claim sacred land. Jonathan Maberry introduces us to a half-Comanche hired gun running out of time against some murderous ghosts. And James A. Moore pits skinwalker against kachina in a Western anthology any historian would love!

GHOST RIDERS IN THE SKY—AND ON THE PRAIRIES AND PLAINS, TOO!

These and a whole passel of other great tales of western weirdness by Joe R. Lansdale, Mercedes Lackey, Jonathan Maberry, James A. Moore, Harry Turtledove, James Van Pelt, Ava Morgan, Sam Stone, Eytan Kollin, Julie Frost, Kim May, Irene Radford, David Boop, and Tex Thompson!

About Straight Outta Dodge City:
“A dark, diverting anthology of 14 original tales, the third in a series. . . . By tossing weird fiction concepts into western settings, these tales give rise to unusual what-ifs. . . . the ever-enjoyable Joe R. Lansdale is on hand with 'The Hoodoo Man and the Midnight Train,' an energetic tale of a mystical gunfighter, and Harry Turtledove presents the delightful 'Junior & Me,' set in an alternate world in which evolution favored reptiles rather than mammals, and the ornery galoot narrating the yarn is actually a highly evolved dinosaur. The result is an amusing . . . bunch of stories.”—Publishers Weekly

About Straight Outta Tombstone:
“The authors were having fun. Even when they are not playing the stories for laughs, they are taking an opportunity to . . . tell a story with a fresh twist, and expand out of their expected boundaries.”—The Galveston County Daily News
