Be warned, this book would be rated 'R' do to the content.
Instead, it's a collection of poorly written short-stories, if you call them that. Several don't have a resolution or a whole plot to qualify as a "story". And that's just one of a variety of failures compiled in this volume. I can't catalog them all.
The editing is spotty and the characters cliched. I'll offer an example, from the middle of "The Not So O.K. Corral" by Rob Rosen. In a climatic moment, an important bit of narration should say, "After all, me and Bill, we was cattlemen. And cattlemen rode." But thanks to a misplaced homophone, it's entirely cryptic and jars the reader out of the action.
If you choose to read this, be aware that most of the main characters suffer senseless deaths from cookie-cutter bad guys.
