This is the 2nd strangest book I've ever read -- "Space War Blues" by Richard Lupoff wins that Gold Medal. But once I got into the rhythm of it, I loved it. I'm not sure it all holds together logically, but emotionally it does.

Weirdest western ever. I'm glad I read it.

It was an odd book, but I liked the characters. Big fan of Galina. Still not quite sure what the Harrows is...but I guess that is the intention.

A dystopian weird western that never lets the bizarre premise get in the way of the storytelling and characterisation. An array of wonderful and strange characters inhabit this one that surprises at each turn. My fear that it might be too weird were quickly dampened as Merrigan concentrates on each and slowly outlines motivations and backstories throughout.

Certainly the longest titled book I've read and well worth the read. Looking forward to more work from an online reading fave.
