Overview

Deadwood meets Cthulhu in this wild and profane Western romp featuring zombies, werewolves, evil spirits, and one pissed-off gun-slinging preacher. The Wild West has never seen the likes of Reverend Jebediah Mercer, a hard man wielding a burning Bible in the battle between God and the Devil, in an endless struggle he's not sure he cares who wins. Laced with fast-paced action, nonstop humor, and spine-tingling horror, Deadman's Road is your ride to hell, in which a vengeful shaman curses the town by conjuring a seemingly unstoppable army of the undead; an ill-advised shortcut leads to a bees' nest of terror; a man stands condemned, not for murdering his wife but for raising the Lovecraftian horror that killed her; a woman is attacked by werewolves and left for dead in a ghost town; and a mining camp faces off with a horde of cannibalistic fiends.

Definitely not for the fainthearted or the easily offended. -- Bookgasm


Frequently including wonderfully cadenced stories-within-stories, the tales in Deadman's Road provide Lansdale with a perfect canvas for his particular kind of humor/horror. --Hell Notes I love the grizzle, and I dig the misanthropy. --Revolution SF This is one weird western series you can take to heart --Zombos' Closet If you're easily offended this may not be the book for you. Deadman's Road is by no means for the faint of heart. --My Shelf Confessions Deadman's Road is an absolute joy to read and read again--and a must-have addition to every right-minded reader's bookshelf. --Bookgasm ... if you want something amusing, scary, and in-your-face? For that you need Joe R. Lansdale. --SFFWorld The master of such tales is undoubtedly Joe Lansdale. For over thirty years Lansdale has been writing western horror stories, setting the tone for all such stories that followed. --Lit Reactor It's the mixture of horror, humor, and action elements that makes this collection a must-read for fans of dark literature. --Buzzy
