We have an update from the editors. They have narrowed down the selections for the six open-submission slots in the book. They assure me they will be announcing final line-up soon.
In the meantime, to whet your whistle, as it were, here is the back cover copy for the book:
Why the Weird Wild West?
The untamed frontier is a challenge… a test of character… a proving ground for the soul… It’s a place where pioneers rewrite their future, or end their days…for better or worse. In the spirit of Bret Maverick, Cat Ballou, Kwai Chang Caine, and James West, The Weird Wild West blends western grit with the magical and mysterious unknown that waits beyond the next horizon.
With thrilling stories by Jonathan Maberry, Gail Z. Martin, John Hartness, RS Belcher, Diana Pharaoh Francis, Misty Massey, James R. Tuck, Robert E. Waters, David Sherman, Tonia Brown and many more, you’ve hit the Mother Lode!
