TITLE ALERT: REACH FOR THE SKY TOC


RBE's first Western of any sort (meaning there will be others to come) is a Weird Western with a twist. Instead of horror we went with sci-fi, combining age-old foes from differing genres: space-faring aliens and the solitary figure of the American West.


We read lots of unique submissions, definitely accepting a few of them, and it was obvious this theme struck a chord amongst our submitters. You'll find independent-minded denizens of the Wild West -- male, female, cowpoke, Indian, outlaw, school marm, necromancer -- facing off against intergalactic beings -- bounty hunters, lawmen, outlaws, slavers, hunters, chefs. You'll also find a fistful of mysteries and adventures!


The esteemed author of Westerns, wyrd or otherwise, Charles Gramlich, kicks off this title with a foreword from out of this world. His introduction leads to about 77,000 words in 13 tales from the following authors:


Simon Young & Jasmine Brown - "Riders on the Storm"

J.B. Toner - "Old Silas' Armory"

David W. Amendola - "The Devil's Angels"
