The Devil's Outhouse

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
After a bank robbery goes terribly wrong, ex-Confederate soldier turned gunfighter Jacob Burden flees into the desert where he might hope to escape the posse but certainly not his conscience. Somehow, Jacob winds up in a place far stranger than any tall tale and more dangerous than a hanging judge. If he keeps his wits sharp and his pistol loaded he might not only survive but find redemption.

About James Pratt

James Pratt likes to create realistically flawed but basically decent characters and have them cross paths with serial killer angels, redneck vampires, slithering horrors from other dimensions, and the end of the world. He also likes to write stories that demonstrate how the ever-present darkness threatening to wash over the world like a wave of endless night can be held back with a little courage and a big shotgun (assuming one hasn't already used both barrels, of course). Some take place in the distant past, others in the far future, and still others somewhere between eight minutes ago and twelve minutes from now. Whether sci-fi, adventure, or straight-out horror, the running theme is that the universe is very, very big and we are very, very small.

This is the 1st story I have read by Mr. Pratt and it certainly won't be the last. I was drawn into the story and at the end I wanted the story to continue on. As another reviewer said his style is easy to read and I like the pace. I would definitely recommend it.

Review by: James G. Davis on Oct. 02, 2011 :
Although I haven't read 'Restless on Boot Hill', I must agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer. The only thing I would add is that Mr. Pratt's writing style is very easy to read and his stories move along at a good pace. I definitely enjoyed this one and certainly recommend it.

Review by: Todd Henderson on July 28, 2011 :
As with 'Restless on Boot Hill', the author has once again managed to blend an old west tale with the supernatural to produce an interesting storyline that will appeal to fans of both genres. Jacob Burden's character flaws and emotional 'burden' make him a very believable and relatable protagonist.
