Get a little bit of science-fiction in your western in this new anthology, "Westward Weird" edited by Martin H. Greenberg and Kerrie Hughes.
There's aliens, paranormal critters, parallel universes, steampunk and zombies in stories from Jay Lake, Larry D. Sweazy, Anton Strout, Seanan McGuire, Brenda Cooper, Christopher McKitterick, Steven Saus, Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Jennifer Brozek, J. Steven York, Jeff Mariotte and Jody Lynn Nye.
There are some really great stories in here. To name a few of my favorites, a story that sounds like the perfect Western legend, a man matches wits with the Devil in "The Temptation of Eustace Prudence McAllen." A steampunk gunslinger comes to town to try to save a town from death by the hands of zombies in "Lowstone." A monster hunter must track down a beast in a sideshow carnival in "The Flower of Arizona." A Bonnie and Clyde-type couple are hired to steal something that leads them to aliens in "Showndown at High Moon." And there's lots more!
For a variety of weird and wild west tales, check this book out.
"Westward Weird" is published by Daw. It is $7.99 and 302 pages long.
