Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer takes a deep-dive into videogame-based horror with our anthology Terror in 16-bits!
A frontier town in peril!
The savagery of the hungry damned!
An unholy trio their only salvation!
Southeastern Oklahoma of the 1880s:
Little Dixie to some. Hell to others…
In the chaotic years following the end of the Civil War, Little Dixie is a brutal no-man’s land where life and death are dictated not just by gangs of lawless thugs, but by far more sinister things as well. Shadowy beings that walk the line in the dirt separating Jesus from the Devil, writing their names in blood, terror, and human suffering.
Such is the woeful condition of Coffin Mills, a town cursed by a history of dark arts and shameful secrets. Something wicked has been stealing the town’s children, something not of this world, or even the next.
Salvation arrives in the form of a trio of mysterious gunslingers known throughout the South as the Haints, a legendary band of bounty hunters specializing in tracking prey of a supernatural variety. They kill monsters, plain and simple.
Haunted by a violent past that will either deliver or destroy them, will they emancipate Coffin Mills from its otherworldly predator, or will all be lost to something far worse than even eternal damnation?
They want you to relax and sit back
Rest those weary bones
Flip on the tube and let the propaganda take hold.
Because freedom won’t fall to the sound of enemy bombs
But the tune of snake oil speeches and thunderous applause.

“Trade Yer Coffin for a Gun is Louis L’Amour meets Lucio Fulci in a dust-caked cavalcade of gore and grit. The book barrels forth like a blood-sotted tumbleweed in a high wind. Blood as in the red stuff —buckets of it, in fact—and blood as in family. Reader, you won’t soon forget the Coffin Mills Haints.” – Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Creeping Waves and The Stay-Awake Men

It was a challenging year for me in a lot of ways, so I didn’t get to spend as much time writing as I would have liked. However I did get a few stories published thanks to some generous folks who saw them as something more than just the paranoid rantings of a burned-out conspiracy theorist who’d had too much of the local Colorado crop. (I mean, sure, they ARE that, but maybe also something more.) Continue reading “Auld Lang Slime: Let’s get this portajohn fire behind us”
