To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It would seem the Old West never ceases to fascinate the imagination. This anthology has a range of stories that capture the sense of adventure and unruliness the setting typically evokes. It features dark encounters in saloons (Jonathon Mast, “A Drink with The Devil”), sly characters met on stage coaches (Gregg Chamberlain, “The Hexman Who Came for Dinner”) and down-right eerie stories (Alistair Rey, “What Hath God Wrought?”). The book plays with many of the standard motifs of the Old West, embodying the tradition of the tall tale in many cases. It was interesting to see how the various authors adapted these traditional tropes. While I am not usually a fan of the Old West genre, this book had enough to entertain me.
