Standout stories worthy of singling out include "The Claw Spurs" by John Shirley, "The Flute Players" by Bruce Priddy, "Uncle Gunnysack" by C.L. Werner and "The Buzzard" by Eric Red. These four best combined the Wild West landscape with true elements of horror; isolation, despair, fear and death. If you enjoy your horror on the gore drenched side, "Uncle Gunnysack" provides more than a few blood soaked moments.
Of course, no collection under the Chaosium brand would be complete without a Mythos inspired story. "Drake Takes a Hand" by Pete Rawlik summons a few Great Old Ones into the mix, and the results are bone chilling! The highest praise I can offer Mr. Rawlik is saying his story seamlessly blends Brett Maverick with H.P. Lovecraft and it works perfectly. Rawlik keeps the reader on edge, slowly dropping hints that things are going wrong for our protagonist without his knowledge. The ending line is unexpected, clever and makes a LOT of sense!
Even the dark fantasy style stories are worth reading, ranging from evil puppets to dinosaur hunts. And who knows? Certain readers may actually prefer this type of scare as opposed to the brutality and blood I favor. True clunkers are rare in this book; only two selections warranted yawns and apathy from me.
As of this review, books mixing the Wild West with horror are few. Quality ones even less so. "Edge of Sundown" therefore is an unique treat worthy of both your money and time.
