Dead in the West by Joe R. Lansdale

Mud Creek, Texas is doing alright—a real, thriving little community with a hotel, a café and a church, in addition to the livery and saloon. Seems like just the right sort of place for Reverend Jebidiah Mercer to pitch a tent and hold a revival. They shouldn’t have gotten together and lynched that Indian medicine man, though. They really shouldn’t have done that. It’s a good thing the Reverend can shoot straight, because in the dark of night, the dead of Mud Creek are rising… and they’re hungry.

For some reason I thought this was going to be multiple stories that covered the Reverand's adventures but it was just one. Pretty short read, only 111 pages but it had a good story: nice blend of western and the undead. Would definitely recommend.
