    1 thought on “Razored Saddles

    1. Razored Saddles is an anthology of 17 startlingly original stories of horror and the macabre, gruesome tales of madness, vengeance, and supernal horror in a universe of Indians and aliens, gunmen, ghouls, and Elvis impersonators. From a modern-day dinosaur roundup and the appalling curse that killed Doc Holiday to a ride on a 40-foot rattlesnake in a bizarre post-nuclear rodeo and the real story about the Battle of the Alamo, these stories will open doors into evil like none you've ever encounte [...]

    2. The genre designation underneath the Avon logo on the spine of this one says it all: COWPUNK HORROR. It's a collection of Western horror stories by some of the best writers in the fantasy field. The Chet Willliamson story is particularly memorable, as are stories by Robert McCammon, Joe Lansdale, and Howard Waldrop. Without question the best cowpunk horror anthology ever!

    3. Weird Westerns put a twist on my guilty reading secret, the Western. Add some Sci-Fi, black magic,maybe some crossdressing to a gunfight and you've got one good time.This has several successful authors, for some it was prior to the success they would later see.

    4. I'm a big fan of the "Weird Western" genre, and an equally big fan of Joe Lansdale, one of the editors of this short-story collection (which includes a Lansdale tale). Sadly, the anthology, which was designed to feature various authors' twisted takes on the Western theme, are mostly not very weird; in fact, some of them aren't really Western. There's a mob story, a couple sci-fi yarns, and one in which the "weird" comes from a male artist's painting himself as the heroine in a series of illustra [...]

    5. Enjoyable genre stories designated "Cowpunk Horror" on the spine, but are really more Cyberpunk Westerns with a horror quality to them. I picked this up for very cheap when I worked at Forbidden Planet, a very, very long time ago. These stories are a fun way to balance out Flannery O'Connor's "Collected Stories" Tour De Force and Lawrence Durrell's "Justine" (Vol. 1 of his "Alexandria Quartet") which is some unholy alchemically wicked, intoxicatingly,impossible stuff, that probably should have a [...]

    6. Nice collection of horror/fantasy stories with a western theme. Some take place in 'the old west' and some in the future. Milage may vary, but I found all of them at least interesting and some excellent.

    7. Kogumik, mille žanrinimetuseks käib läbi päris mitu terminit. "Weird West" oleks ehk kõige tuntum, aga kaane peal leidub veel "Cowpunk horror" ja "Western Macabre", et pilt päris selge oleks. Samas on sees päris mitu juttu (ja need jutud kuuluvad veel kogumiku mõnusaimate hulka, näiteks Neal Barrett Jr'i "Tony Red Dog", või Joe R. Landsdale'i "The Job", ) milles pole ulmet mitte ühe molekuli võrragi vaid tegu on kõige puhtakujulisema crime/thrilleri, ehk krimiga. Nagu kogumike puhul [...]

    8. When I see a book cover with a skeleton in western garb on a horse, I expect more Old West macabre tales than one and done. Don't get me wrong, there are a few good stories in this collection, but just not enough.Even the Lansdale story was a let down. I wanted more from the guy who wrote some pretty gruesome Jonah Hex stories for Vertigo.

    9. With the exception of Robert McCammon's story, "Black Boots" and Chet Williamson's "Yore Skin's Jes's Soft 'N Purdy," the rest of these stories are forgettable, with most barely fitting into the genre the book promises. It's always a pleasure when I discover short stories by some of my favorite authors hidden away and nearly forgotten on a library shelf, but this collection was disappointing.

    10. Uneven, but admirable in its goal. The stories that fall short are fine, and none are awful. The real reward of the book are the handful of nuggets of gold amid the at times desolate landscape. Light, quick and worthwhile for a horror/weird fiction fan, but not the casual horror reader.

    11. The impossible to find Lansdale/LoBurto "cow-punk" anthology is almost worth the hunt. There’s a good story from a young Robert McHammond, and another good one from Lansdale that has nothing to do with the theme of the book. A few other novel stories, and a lot of things I can’t believe I read.
