This story was intended to be an homage to the old western and martial arts films of the 20th century. I wanted to take the two genres and merge them into one story. Understandably this has been done before in television and film, but I wanted to add my own personal take on it while maintaining some of the tropes of the films and television shows of those genres from this time period. This is a period piece, but with elements of fantasy. The historical references may not be fully accurate as the story is meant to take place in an alternate Earth. I can only hope the reader enjoys reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
