Overview

Walking Wolf a/k/a Billy Skillet is the orphaned son of white settlers, found as an infant and raised to be a proud Comanche warrior. He also happens to be a werewolf. When he loses control of his darker nature and ends up killing the woman he loves and his best friend, Walking Wolf heads out into the White Man's world to learn more about who--and what--he is. This is his story of self-discovery as he travels the Old West, crossing the paths of a couple of deranged serial killers, a traveling medicine show, a vampire gunslinger, even a fellow werewolf, as well as such historical figures as Quanah Parker and Sitting Bull. But all the dangers he finds himself facing, none is as deadly as the bounty hunter known as Witchfinder Jones, who holds the secret of Walking Wolf's origins. Award-winning novelist Nancy A. Collins, author of Sunglasses After Dark, spins a tale of strange doings on the high plains in the vein of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Collins' latest is both a variation on the western werewolf premise of her last novel, Wild Blood, and an extension of themes she has been developing since her 1989 debut in Sunglasses After Dark, which won a Bram Stoker Award for its imaginings about supernatural beings who masquerade in human guise. Narrator Billy Skillet is the 150-year-old shapeshifter offspring of a human mother and vargr (werewolf) father. The first half of Billy's tale is a picaresque romp in which the competing demands of his human and feral sides drive him from the west-Texas Comanches among whom he's raised in the mid-19th century into the white man's world, where he works as a saloon attendant, a drummer for a traveling medicine show and a sidekick for a vampire gunslinger. Midway through the narrative, Billy's irreverent portrait of the Wild West and his wry reflections on human nature give way to sober sermonizing on the white man's destruction of the Indian nation and to didactic appearances by legendary Indians like Sitting Bull and Red Cloud. Billy, with a nod to Mark Twain, admonishes at the outset of his tale that ``anyone attempting to find a moral will be gut-shot''; would that he had heeded his own warning. (May)
The Agony Column - Rick Kleffel
Collins sets the tone of her tale quickly, having Billy Skillet tell his tale in a terse, conversational first-person voice. This device could wear thin, but doesn't, partially because the book is so short, but more importantly because the prose is entertaining, funny and well-written. Her characters are more than flat images lifted out of her obvious research, brought alive by her writing skill.
Weird West Emporium - Infernal Adams
Walking Wolf (the character) recounts his life for us, the reader. He was found by Comanches and raised as one. Being a skinwalker made things both easier and more difficult for him. His Comanche brethren (and the other tribes), viewed him as a good luck sign, or good medicine but he was not met without some fear at his “true face”. He makes some serious mistakes and exiles himself to learn more about what a skinwalker is and what he should do with his life. Along the way, he meets
