Last Entry (exp 11/16)

An outlaw gang could be thwarted by a troublesome young woman and her father’s time machine. Buffalo hunters encounter something much more dangerous in the wild. Alien gunslingers wreak havoc on Earth history. A mysterious stranger and his hungry nag offer to help a homesteader save his home. Tesla and Rasputin tangle over a girl’s special powers. Warlocks have a showdown in the Old West.

The Weird Western story has always been a curious subculture of speculative fiction, and the stories featured in Straight Outta Tombstone are weirder than most. Witches and werecreatures, ghosts and magic and evil, steampunk and time travel…all of these tropes and more can be found within the pages of this collection.

But, for the most part, these stories are great fun. Even when stakes are high, you’re not dragged down into the muck. Instead, you root for these dime novel-style heroes and ne’er-do-wells to set things right. Straight Outta Tombstone offers both humorous yarns and thrilling stories to get the blood pumping. It’s an excellent primer for Weird West in particular and Weird Fantasy in general.
