Dead in the West

Joe R. Lansdale

Death! A commonplace in the frontier town of Mud Creek, and usually final. After an Indian medicine man's lynching, though, bodies show up the likes of which Doc and Undertaker Mertiz have never seen. Nor has the Reverend Jebidiah Mercer, an itinerant, gunslinging evangelist who, after an alcoholic vision, believes it his destiny to confront the demon behind the madness.

" is difficult to set this western thriller down unfinished." -- Books of the Southwest

"   you can't help but just have a plain old good time..." --Al Sarrantonio, Night Cry

"...a great deal of grotesque charm...a B-movie, tongue-in-cheek exercise in gross-out graphic horror. Naturally I enjoyed it." --Ed Bryant,
