I was fortunate enough to receive a paperback copy of Scryer's Gulch (Magic in the Wild Wild West) Episodes 1-10: Annabelle Arrives as part of Goodreads' First Reads giveaway program. This book is also available in eForm, as are the next chapters in the serial fantasy western. And it is well worth the read. Ms. Miranda combines the best of the old West with Steampunk magic and the result is wildly entertaining. Think a combination of 'The Wild Wild West,' 'Deadwood' and 'Cat Ballou' with a smidg...more

A playful wildwest meets science fiction story filled with intrigue and drama. A fun read, suitable for older teens and adults, (it contains some adult concepts), and while there is talk of demons, death and magical creatures the story is not scary, but a good distraction from the real world.

I was hooked after reading this and continued reading the remaining currently posted chapters available in weekly installments on the Author's blog at - http://www.meilinmiranda.com/scryers-...

I kinda wrote it, so take that into consideration. :)

This is a compilation of the first ten episodes of my webserial mashup of fantasy, westerns and soap operas; I'm told there's a steampunky vibe, too. If you were to take Dark Shadows, Deadwood and Wild, Wild West and put 'em in a blender, you'd have something of an idea as to what's going on here.

I wrote this; all I wish to add is that there is now a second book in the series: Scryer's Gulch: Magic in the Wild, Wild West - Episodes 11-30. Enjoy!

Either I wait for the next episodes to be made into an ebook, or I read it on the website. What to do, what to do. I've said it before: This is a fun read. I just can't pronounce Herma-whats-it.

Steampunk magic in the wild west...how cool is that?!

Gets 5 stars because I will definitely read it again when the serial is done.

Really enjoyed this, although I ignored the tangents it sometimes wandered off in.

MeiLin Miranda writes literary fantasy and science fiction set in Victorian worlds. Her love of all things 19th century (except for the pesky parts like cholera, child labor, slavery and no rights for women) has consumed her since childhood, when she fell in a stack of Louisa May Alcott and never got up.

MeiLin wrote nonfiction for thirty years, in radio, television, print and the web. She always w...more
