This isn’t the same old Wild West. The usual suspects are all present: cowboys, outlaws, and sheriffs. There’s plenty of dust, tumbleweeds, horses, and cattle on the range, but there are also magical gems, automatons, elementals, airships… even dinosaurs and genetically modified insects. Roaming among the buffalo and coyotes, you’ll encounter skinwalkers, mad engineers, mythical beings cloaked in darkness, and lovers who stay true to their oaths… even beyond the grave. On this frontier are those at the mercy of their own elaborate devices, as well as men whose control of time and space provides a present-day vision of the West. There might even be a dragon hidden amongst the ghost towns and wagon trains.
If you like your Westerns with a splash of magic, a touch of steampunk, and plenty of passionate romance between men, these genre-bending tales will exceed expectations.
Hold on to your hats, cowboys and cowgirls. The West is about to get weird, and you’re in for a hell of a ride.

I have found some of my favorite authors through their collections. But this is the second one I have read recently where they mixed in horror stories with m/m elements with the romances. I do not read horror. Last time I finished and still gave them a good review for the other stories, many of which were lovely, with a warning for other non horror fans in my comments. This time I'm doing myself a favor and stopping at about 40% when I hit the first horror story. I do not want those images in my head. I do not require a HEA every time, just an ending that doesn't make me want to poke a fork in my eye. If I wanted that I would buy a horror anthology on purpose or ya know, open the political news. Please, Dreamspinner, go back to giving your romance readers romance without nightmares.
