Publisher Comments:

Welcome to a West like you've never seen before, where electric lights shine down on the streets of Tombstone, while horseless stagecoaches carry passengers to and fro, and where death is no obstacle to The Thing That Was Once Johnny Ringo. Think you know the story of the O.K. Corral? Think again, as five-time Hugo winner Mike Resnick takes on his first steampunk western tale, and the West will never be the same.

Review:

"In this lusterless steampunk western, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday are outfitted with superhard brass body armor and Gatling-style handguns; Thomas Edison is a cyborg working with Ned Buntline on motorized stagecoaches and other wonders; lawman Bat Masterson has vampiric tendencies; gunslinger Johnny Ringo is a zombie bent on besting Holliday in a gunfight; and Geronimo is a successful shaman and general making sure the United States stops at the Mississippi. Five-time Hugo winner Resnick brings a sparse, dialogue-centric writing style to the classic story of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, twisting it ever so slightly to blend magic and mechanism into its narrative weave. The larger story of the feud is untouched, making Resnick's rendition feel like a copycat of Tombstone with gears glued on. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Gregory, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Gregory)
Mike Resnick recasts the shootout at the OK Corral in a setteing alive with magics of multiple kinds but most of all the magic of his furtile immagination. His versions of Doc Holiday, Johnny Ringo, Bat Masterson and on and on live in my mind right alongside the brillant movie versions from Tombstone. His west is a forign yet familiar frontier and I hope for more adventures in this land with potent medicine man magic right alongside whitman technology.
