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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I really liked this book. That particular scene did disturb me, though, but I am vegan. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Twin Peaks.
Any additional comments?
You just never know just quite what is going to happen next. Very well written and very engaging. Very artistic. Clever and comical till the very end. The narration was very good.
