Alondra Miller | 1895 comments Gehenna (West of Hell #1) by Jason Brant series by Jason Brant. Gory, zombie western and a dastardly bastard who is a great anti-hero. Fun series and mostly free on Amazon. The 3rd book has not been a freebie that I know of; but the first 2 are always going for free intermittently.

Justin (justinbienvenue) | 2788 comments One of the last books I read was Skin Medicine and I've never enjoyed a book more and been disturbed at the same time! It was excellent and I definitely need to read more Tim Curran books.

Christopher Conlon (goodreadscomchristopherconlon) | 266 comments I'm not big on Westerns generally but Richard Matheson wrote a very good one that had supernatural elements called Shadow on the Sun.
