The third adventure in "The Colton Chronicles" from groundbreaking new Western author Jon Dobbin!
Jim Colton has returned to the West. Seeking to connect with his roots, he endeavours to find his old family home in the mountains of northern Colorado. When a freak blizzard delays his travel, Colton is forced to take refuge with a strange group called the Order of Chthar. The Order is made up of the rich and influential, but they welcome Colton as a guest to wait out the storm.
The longer he stays at the castle, the stranger it gets. He is plagued by terrifying dreams that seem all too real, and then there's the matter of the sounds that only come at night.
Colton must solve the riddle of the castle or risk losing his sanity and maybe his life.
Hired as a guide and guard, Colton leads them to a local wonder— a large sinkhole made of red rock. There the archaeologists begin their exploration, and people start dying.
Problem is, the dead don’t stay dead.
With a handful of survivors, and the town of Crimson Hollow in danger, Colton is faced with the choice to either be a leader and take a stand or leave them all to die.
Either way, Colton is going to be haunted by the ghosts of Crimson Hollow.
The second adventure in "The Colton Chronicles" from groundbreaking new Western author Jon Dobbin!

When his old friend, Alexander Price, offers him a ticket on a train bound for California, he takes it. How can he refuse?
Train life isn't what Colton expects, especially when there's an attempted train robbery by infamous bandit Scratch Maynard. But that's just the start of his strange ride through the United States. When people start dying in ritualistic murders, Colton doesn't know who he can trust except himself and his gun.

"This is a highly entertaining anthology. The editors asked for stories faithful to pulp fiction but with modern twists that subvert, or perhaps I should say “transcend” its limitations. The writers delivered. For them as likes old-fashioned SF it is a wonderful bunch of stories. And for them as wants to avoid the same-old, same-old, there is an abundance of original touches. Best of both worlds if you ask me. I had gleeful good fun reading this. Maybe my tastes are bizarre to the point of being uniquely unique, but I doubt it. Strongly suspect many people are going to love this anthology as much as I do, which is my subtle way of saying I recommend this book!" -- Amazing Stories
