      Great Weird Western It s not going to revolutionize the genre in many ways it s a throwback to the classic Louis L Amour style disposable pulp Manly Men western but with a demon Or monster Or whatever the Charred Man is view spoiler The ambiguity of its origins were a nice touch Indian skin walker Natural force Mother Nature s revenge on the miners Punishment from a Christian God Well, it s pretty clear by the end that it s not the last one, though it isn t evidence for the Priest against his fa [...]

      Disclosure I know the author.With that out the way, I really liked this book, particularly how it blends the stark, morality tale type western with horror elements At first it was a bit slow for me, and the characters felt took stock But when things turned weird, the story really got some legs Just the right doses of description are meted our when needed, without bogging us down Bonus points for the use of the word char The pacing was excellent, a hard thing to pull off correctly I feel the paci [...]

      And the Hills Opened up is a horror novel set in the small mining town of Red Earth, Wyoming in 1890 From the first scene, David Oppegaard propels the reader into a quiet tension The story opens on a hot July day with Hank Chambers a foreman sweating through a summer fever giving a headcount of his men before they set fire to the dynamite that would blast open the hills, unearthing much than copper ore There is something very unsettling about this opening scene the sweat in Chambers s eyes a cr [...]

      He wanted to shout them into the sky and have them taken by the wind He wanted to be rid of their names and faces, the memory of their touch and he understood that his love for them was like a curse, a great eternal curse as strong and wicked as anything a demon could devise It s the middle of the summer in Red Earth, Wyoming when miners blasted deeper into their copper mine Little do they know, they unearthed a demon from within the mines and proceeded to kill everything in it s path At the sam [...]

      Red Earth, Wyoming has a copper mine, an eager young sheriff, and four outlaws, led by Elwood Hayes, planning to rob the mining company s payroll from weasely mine accountant, Revis Cooke Red Earth also has a monster lurking in its mine, an indestructible Charred Man, who kills with impunity and regrows his flesh, inch by inch, with each murder Everyone s best laid plans go awry when the Charred Man is unearthed and goes on a rampage That was basically it, a monster in a Western, like Cowboys an [...]

      Spoilers lie ahead.EVERYONE IN THIS BOOK DIES.I take that back There is one survivor, who actually has nothing to do with the mayhem that bathes the book in rivers of blood, but he s almost a footnote to the story.The story reminded me of something, but I don t exactly recall The setting is the small mining town of Red Earth, Wyoming The miners blast open a new section of the mountain, and something evil is unearthed That something becomes known as The Charred Man, but his origins are never expl [...]

      Western Horror TaleOn one hand, a story about a rough and tumble mining camp with bad guys riding into town looking to pull a job Things go bad, like they do in saloons where the whiskey and beer literally are the root of trouble Throw in a sheriff and the town shores, we got ourselves a good old oaterBut then it s a horror story too The miners unleash a demon Lots and lots of dead bodies, whores, bad guys, miners, this one has it all.

      This is how you do horror I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book It reads like a B horror movie, but a good one where people make smart decisions for the most part anyway I m not sure how I feel about what the creature was and view spoiler its ultimate destruction It seemed too quick hide spoiler

    9. Evan Kingston on said:

      Lots of pulpy goodness in this one A little horror, a few cowboys, I thought I has it figured out early on, but once the blood started flying, I was surprised at every turn Both fresh and comforting in its mixing of genres.

    10. Ned on said:

      This is my favorite book in the dark old western genre The language is amazing I have been following this author s progress for the last 17 years This is by far his best work I think he really found his voice in this novel Excellent book.

    11. Matthew Spindler on said:

      Great combination of horror and western It reads like a delightfully campy B movie in the vein of Tremors or From Duck Till Dawn.

    12. Eric on said:

    13. Luanne on said:

      A little bit Lansdale, a little bit Bradbury, a little bit western, a little bit weird Spoiler Nobody gets out of here alive.
