The Weird West Bundle - Curated by Tammy Salyer
Who among us didn't grow up with at least one Old West hero? For me, it was Billy the Kid. Not the lawless, gunslinging psycho killer of real life, but rather the Young Guns movie version: the slick talkin', fast shootin', justice seekin' orphan who along with a band of outcasts used the wilds of nature and chaos of frontier fighting to face down the big bad rancher who tried to kill his mentor. A bit of idealistic bunkum? Sure. But also exactly the kind of delicious mix of ingredients that all good Westerns contain.
Okay, you may be saying, but what do you mean by Weird West? Oh boy, here's where things get REALLY good. Weird West is a subgenre of speculative fiction that combines bits of traditional Western stories with supernatural, science fiction, steampunk, or even horror elements. In other words, it turns the good ole standby of cowboys and Indians firmly on its head, and throws in a dash of shamans and sorcerers, a spritz of steampower and magic (and sometimes steampowered magic!), or a sprinkle of zombies and Fae, and nearly every goldurn one of 'em is a gunslinger!
One of the defining features of the Weird West genre is its sense of adventure and exploration, with no frontier too untamed or too strange. This StoryBundle will appeal to fans of Westerns and fantasy and horror, as it offers a unique blend of each of those (and more) genres. It can also be a great entry point for readers who are new to any of those genres, as it offers a fresh take on familiar themes and tropes.
Overall, this Weird West bundle is an exciting and imaginative blend of many different worlds, and it's a great choice for readers who are looking for something that's both familiar and unexpected. So get out your Double Eagles and ante up for a game of supernatural faro at the Weird West Saloon today! – Tammy Salyer
