High Midnight is a modern day supernatural Western set against a preternatural backdrop. It is a surreal trip into a world of fanciful cryptid-creatures - a menagerie of monstrosities that literally crawl from a crater perched at the mouth of Hell. The 'Devil's Outhouse' emits both a stink and an allure for vagrants, vagabonds and those wishing to be lost or forgotten - or simply left alone. It is the perfect place to build a nowhere town.
Welcome to Unity, Texas. Population: Bizarre. The only thing protecting the residents of Unity from a stream of nightmares is Laredo Beaumont, the town's hard-drinking, ass-kicking sheriff, and Cicero, his knife-wielding chimpanzee deputy. It's a thankless job that leaves Laredo drained and nearly broken. The only solace he can find is in the arms of his beloved Sally Mae, a ghostly soiled dove from a phantom bordello where only the most daring of men would think to step foot.
But midnight is fast approaching Unity, leaving Laredo to face not only creatures from Hell and the walking dead, but a band of homicidal clowns who have their own score to settle. A gonzo pulp Western for the 21st Century, High Midnight is a timeless tale of blood and redemption.

Strange and awesome!
High Midnight IS as awesome as it looks!
Aside from the action packed plot and the amazing mash-up of genres (zombie-western-horror) Mosca is descriptive to the point of immersion and Bernard Setaro Clark really gives this story the voice it deserves.
Bernard's fluent narration brings the story to life! He makes this a rip-roarin' good listen!
