When you are a kid did you long to put on your cowboy boots, belt on your guns, saddle up, and ride off to find adventures? Did you sit glued to the TV watching The Lone ranger, Maverick, Bonanza, The Wild Wild West, The Adventures of Brisco Country Jr.and Firefly, to name just a few of the many series that have been popular over the last sixty years? And were you caught up in movies like Outlands, Time Bandits, Serenity, or Back to the Future Part III?If so, Westward Weirdis the book for you.
The thirteen original stories included here ride a very board range between science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal-and all of them are told from a Wild West perspective. So get ready for some good old-fashioned adventures as:
- The Old Gods cross paths in the Old West
- Two thieves are given a job they can't refuse, but no one told them they'd encounter aliens along the way
- A mining family never expected their claims to be jumped from parallel universes
- A Mars colony may be about to find out exactly how the West was won
- Cowboys will be hard-pressed to ride herd on the living dead
