A great collection. Every story was well written
and entertaining. The entries from Barry Reese
and Derrick Ferguson alone make this a must
read in my opinion. Absolutely recommend it
for fans of weird fiction.

Review by: Voice Spider on March 28, 2012 :
A wonderful collection of weird western fiction spanning not only the standard fare of cowboys and zombies/creatures/werewolves but also a nice helping of modern day and futuristic stories as well, something a lot of people forget is ALSO part of the weird west genre.

After setting this book down I thought back to all the stories within it and have to say that none really struck me as sub-par. Even the final story set in modern times, though less interesting and lacking in a lot of the weird west theme, is still a wonderful story to read. I had found myself coming back to this book again and again as I read it, unable to put it down as I promised myself one more story.

This is a superb collection of weird west stories and if anyone has any interest in this genre you can't do wrong by adding this to your collection of fiction. Well done stories, edited with skill, and overall left me with a satisfied feeling. I recommend this collection.
