Publisher's Summary

This is a story that sounds like a cross between Lonesome Dove and Twin Peaks.
Meet Bass Clayton, a bounty killer turned professional drunkard. Silver Grimes is the man who inadvertently turned Bass Clayton into a drunk; after Bass accidentally shot Silver's arm off with an eight gauge shotgun. Sally Jezebel has a secret that she is keeping from both of them.
Their lives are going to turn when Newt Gallagher comes riding into Willy Jake's bar on top of Pritcher Targate's prize sow.
What you have got to ask yourself is just how far one man will go for revenge?

The Good, the Bad, and the Regretful

I want to make one thing clear right off the bat, the cover, as awesome as it is is a little misleading. This is a weird west (re: awesome) type tale, but there are no zombie gunslingers, cowboys, or madames.

No, this story is about a bounty hunter, who makes a bad decision and has to learn to live with the consequences of his actions. This is a pig ridin' good time fill of shooting. Indian magic, amputation, relations with some animals being mentioned, and a Mad Max style burial. Rueful Regret is the bounty hunters state of mind, and the name of the town he holes up in to drink himself into oblivion.

Vernon's writing is colorful, and full of coments that could have come right from that era. You certainly can feel and smeel the old west when he writes, and you might get thirsty just listening to them talk about dry mouth. Craig does a great narration, and he definately adds to the western ambiance. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If you enjoy westerns, the weird west, or a good ole story about pig ridin' give this here novella taste. It'll suit you right down to the ground.
