Weird Western horror is increasingly popular and a definite subgenre with devoted fans. Among the various stories. . . In the creepy "Realgar" by Jackson Kuhl, an abandoned mine hides dark secrets which are better left unrevealed. Sam Kepfield contributes "Hell Home on the Range," a gruesome noir story.
Mario Guslandi - SF Site another successful collection (12 stories) that is a must read. One of the stories I enjoyed was The Five Disciples. This brings several genres together besides the western and horror to blend into one action packed bloodfest. I also enjoyed The Temptation of Darcy Morgan. This tells of a young lady who deals cards for a saloon. This is a great story because it is not about action like the last story but a battle of the mind. Blood Moon Rising (issue 50)
A collection of twelve stories, all of which use the Old West as the backdrop to tell their tales. As you can imagine these stories are filled with murder, mayhem, other worldly vengeance, Native American mysticism and even the old horror stalwart-vampires make an appearance... Low Noon
is an enjoyable read. I like mixing the westerns and light horror. All contributions to this collection should be proud. This is the third collection of stories released by Science Fiction Trails
, and I look forward seeing what they come up with next.

From the Author
This is our third western horror anthology. If you liked Showdown at Midnight or Six Guns Straight From Hell, I think you'll like this one too.
