Snake oil salesman Dr. Darius Darke and other "legends" of the Old West are called upon to fight a band of brain-eating bandits in a three-dimensionally-challenged box canyon. This story is a prequel to David Bain's full-length weird Western novel Riders Where There Are No Roads. David Bain is the author of Death Sight, the first novel in the Will Castleton psychic detective series, Gray Lake: A Novel Of Crime And Supernatural Horror and several short story collections. He teaches writing at a community college in Indiana.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
I SLEEP WHILE READING
I think Bain tried to cram too much in a short format. This is funny in places, but mostly just silly. He went to a lot of trouble to set up some colorful characters and than killed them off five minutes later.
THE MONSTER WAS A TERRIBLE SHOT
I already have the full length novel (four hours?) in my library. I hope the longer length helps to flesh out a better story with better character development.
An enjoyable piece; always enjoy a but of Lovecraftian horror. Need something a little longer.
