Read Straight Outta Tombstone Online Free - Tales of the Weird Wild West.Top authors take on the classic western, with a weird twist. Includes new stories by Larry Correia and Jim Butcher!
Come visit the Old West, the land where gang initiations, ride-by shootings and territory disputes got their start. But these tales aren't the ones your grandpappy spun around a campfire, unless he spoke of soul-sucking ghosts, steam-powered demons, and wayward aliens.
Here then are seventeen stories that breathe new life in the Old West. Among them: Larry Correia explores the roots of his best-selling Monster Hunter International series in "Bubba Shackleford's Professional Monster Killers." Jim Butcher reveals the origin of one of the Dresden Files' most popular characters in "A Fistful of Warlocks." And Kevin J. Anderson's Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I., finds himself in a showdown in "High Midnight." Plus stories from Alan Dean Foster, Sarah A. Hoyt, Jody Lynn Nye, Michael A. Stackpole, and many more.
This is a new Old West and you ll be lucky to get outta town alive!

Papa Pat Rambles has additional commentary, particularly about the cover art: http://habakkuk21.blogspot.com/2017/0...
BUBBA SHACKLEFORD’S PROFESSIONAL MONSTER KILLERS by Larry Correia. Ever since Owen got to throw his boss out of the window, his fans have been clamoring for more. And, by going in...

Between the title and the cover, it didn't take much for me to be salivating over buying this. I'm a big fan of the Weird West, as many folk know, going back to my work on Doomtown Reloaded for the Deadlands RPG universe. Add in some of my literary heroes like Jim Butcher, Kevin J. Anderson and L...

When I heard one of my favorite authors (Jim Butcher) was contributing to a weird west anthology, I knew I had to get it. I was also excited to read some other authors I hadn't read before.
As with any anthology, there were some stars, some that were just eh, and some that I kinda wish I'd skippe...

I've liked westerns for many many years, though recently I've taken to reading more scifi than western, the action is better, and the stories are more interesting.
Who would have thought that combining western settings with scifi stories could be so much fun.
If you like either westerns, or scifi,...

I was really excited about this collection. It has a story in the Monster Hunter universe and a story in the Dresden Files universe - IN THE SAME BOOK! How could that not be amazing?
Well, it could not be amazing because it's westerns. Don't get me wrong, I like them, they're just not the top of m...

NOTE: Review only for "A Fistful of Warlocks" by Jim Butcher.
This short story takes place WAY back before any of the other stories in the series. A young Warden (not yet leader of) Anastasia Luccio is on the trail of a rogue Warlock. Entering Dodge City on a creature disguised as a horse, she end...

Another one I found in one of those best of Colorado writers lists. There are times when a short story collection is just what I need. 15-20 pages and I can put it down and pick it up later without having to remember anything. As usual, some very good ones and some just OK ones. None of them were...

Revisit the old west
If you like tales of the old west, especially if you like tales of the old west spiced with a bit of the bizarre or supernatural, you will enjoy these stories. The authors depict their setting well enough that you can practically taste the dust at the back of your throat. You...

Better than yer average antholigy
I usually approach anthologies cautiously. They hold, in my opinion, more potential for stinkers than they do good stuff.
I am pleased to report that I only found one that I was bored with but can't even call a stinker. That's phenomenal for Me.
Usually I might only...

This was an awesome read. I liked all the stories in it, and loved most of them. David Boop did an amazing job gathering these disparate stories and putting them together in a cohesive whole that really works. You can read my full review over on MySF Reviews.
