Publisher's Summary

"There's things out there that you ain't dreamed of. Like back-from-the-dead mountain men, green ghost mountain spirits, carrion stallion, time-traveling mad scientists and zombified buffalo... just for starters." This weird western novella starts at a gallop and gathers momentum faster than a stampeding avalanche. You will never look at a severed head the same way again.


What the Critics Say

"This is, simply put, the wildest western horror romp of recent years. In his new novella, Long Horn, Big Shaggy, Steve Vernon has taken icons of the Wild West, combined them with elements of H. P. Lovecraft, H. G. Wells, and George Romero, and created something unique in both voice and scope that will stick with readers long after the tumbleweeds have rolled off down the path." (David Niall Wilson, Cemetery Dance Publications)

AS SURE AS SHIT GREW MAGGOTS, this is typical of Steve Vernon. SV shows he has imagination, that he tells a story in a different way then others, but he still does not know how to bring these stories to a final conclusion. He is better in the very short story category, where a plot may not be as important.

Zombies and aliens inhabit this book along with some old time western characters. LEDBETTER MIGHT HAVE BEEN DEAD, BE HE WASN'T SUICIDAL. He was not quite DEADER THEN A BEAVER HAT. Most of the characters are THE KIND OF NIGHTMARES, NIGHTMARES DREAM ABOUT. If all you want are some strange characters and some strange situations then this is the book for you. The lack of a plot and the lack of an ending will kill the fun for most readers. His writing style is similar to Purity Anderson.
