Deadwood meets Cthulhu in this wild and profane Western romp featuring zombies, werewolves, evil spirits, and one pissed off gun-slinging preacher. The Wild West has never seen the likes of Reverend Jebediah Mercer, a hard man wielding a burning Bible in the battle between God and the Devil -- an endless struggle hes not sure he cares who wins. All five of Mercers adventures are collected in this blasphemous volume laced with fast-paced action, non-stop humour, and delectable creepiness. In Dead in the West, a vengeful shaman curses the town by conjuring a seemingly unstoppable army of the undead, while in the short story the "Deadman's Road", an ill-advised shortcut leads to a bees nest of terror. In "The Crawling Sky" a man stands condemned not for the murder of his wife, but for raising the Lovecraftian horror that killed her. A visit to "The Gentlemans Hotel" reveals why a woman is attacked by werewolves and left for dead in a ghost town, and lurking in "The Dark Down There" a mining camp faces off with a horde of cannibalistic fiends.
These supernatural tales of the old West that never was will have readers cheering for the good guys -- if they can figure out who the good guys are.
