Deadman's Road

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.

Zitat
"A folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace." -- New York Times Book Review "Joe R. Lansdale is one of the more versatile writers in America." -- Los Angeles Times "Lansdale is an American original with a storytelling style distinctively his own." -- Publisher's Weekly "Lansdale's been hailed, at varying points in his career, as the new Flannery O'Connor, William Faulkner-gone-madder, and the last surviving splatterpunk. He's none of those, of course; more than any other contemporary writer I can think of, Lansdale is Lansdale, his ownself, sanctified in the blood of the walking Western dead and righteously readable." -- Austin Chronicle "Definitely not for the fainthearted or the easily offended." -- Bookgasm "Frequently including wonderfully cadenced stories-within-stories, the tales in Deadman's Road provide Lansdale with a perfect canvas for his particular kind of humor/horror." --Michael R. Collings, Hell Notes "Marked by Lansdale's irreverent humor and masterful storytelling, this unique collection of stories is one that's not to be missed." --Kirkus "I love the grizzle, and I dig the misanthropy. (Rating: 9 out of 10)" --Joe Crowe, Revolution SF
