Overview

When you were 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 Brsico County Jr., and Firefly? And were you caught up in movies like Outlands, Time Bandits, Serenity, or  Back to the Future Part III?

If so, Westward Weird is the book for you. Thirteen original stories included here ride a very broad range between science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal—and all of them are told from a Wild West perspective.
  

Get ready for some good old-fashioned adventure, as:
–The Old Gods cross paths in the Old West.
–Two theives are given a job they can't refuse, but no one told them there'd be aliens.
–A mining family never expected their claim to be jumped from parallel universes.
–A Mars colony may be about to find out extactly how the West was won.
–Cowboys will be hard-pressed to ride the herd on the living dead.

Featuring stories from:
Jay Lake — Larry D. Sweazy — Anton Strout — Brenda Cooper — Seanan McGuire — Christopher McKitterick — Steven Saus
Dean Wesley Smith — Jennifer Brozek — Kristine Kathryn Rusch — J. Steven York — Jeff Mariotte — Jody Lynn Nye

I very much enjoyed this collection of stories that took place in a mythical old west. Starting with a story that is very much like a typical western tall tale, to faerie tales, science fiction, demons and steampunk. This collection has something for everyone and will join a spot in my permanent collection. Definitely not a waste of time and something I am very glad I had a chance to read. I am very sorry that Martin is no longer with us so that we can continue enjoying his sense of timing and expertise in the realm of anthologies. © Night Owl Reviews
