This combination worked brilliantly here. It's a fascinating world, and I enjoyed seeing the various parts of it these stories showed.
The stories were good, too. They didn't explain the setting- a good thing, in my opinion! I like being dumped in media res and having to figure it out- and well-paced. Even though I'm not especially into horror, "Railroad Spikes" is really sticking with me. Horror, yes, but nothing supernatural about it.
This is not to slight the other stories; all ranged from very good to excellent.
And thus I am a convert to a possibly new genre that has very little overlap with the ones I currently enjoy!
The stories it contain become small epics and feature bigger than life heroes and heroines working to bring justice and prosperity to the wild frontier. The world imagined by editor Gareth-Michael Skarka is populated by masked Marshals and beautify courtesan/assassins, flying gambling parlors as well as the expected railroad barons and gunslingers for hire and brave pioneers just trying to stake a claim for themselves.
We are presented with wonderful stories such as He Built the Wall To knock It Down by Scott Lynch. Here we meet a tired kung fu gunslinger who takes on a new apprentice just in time to face his greatest rival. In Crippled Avengers by Dave Gross. We get a hint of what steampunk super heroes might learn their trade. And in Jason Blair's Local legend we get to hear the tale of one of the far west's greatest bandits met his end at the hands of a wandering gunslinger.
My only complaint is I am getting impatient for more.
