    I have a fondness for weird westerns and Wild is a decent genre

    I have a fondness for weird westerns and Wild is a decent genre read. I also have a growing dislike for zombie fiction but Crisler does well with the trope, integrating the walking dead into the story (rather than, oh yeah, I need some zombie). The characters are interesting and there is a gritty, spaghetti western feel to it. There is more to Matthias Jacoby and I hope we see more of him in the future -- perhaps, hopefully, in a longer venture.

    increasingly intense supernatural horror

    In 1886 El Paso, Matthias Jacoby--a mystery man with a reputation for solving impossible cases--is called upon to find a missing colonel and his son. The trail leads into the New Mexico desert, and Jacoby is accompanied on it by the deputy sheriff who recruited him, a doctor, and an outlaw with essential knowledge and ideas of his own. What they find is much more than they bargained for--black magic and the risen dead.

    Lincoln Crisler's novella is a smooth hybrid of western detective and zombie horror fiction, moving at a fast clip without sacrificing detail or atmosphere. Matthias Jacoby is an engaging character, though we learn very little of his backstory, and the supporting characters hold their own. Short enough to complete in a single sitting, with an accelerating plot that all but demanded I do so, I found Wild to be a lot of fun.
