Product Details


“The Doctor and the Rough Rider succeeds as a piece of Weird West fiction, filled to the brim with guns, alcohol, and dusty expeditions on horseback….Anyone looking for an uncomplicated read about adventuring in the American West, with just a touch of fancy tech, will be quite satisfied.”-Steampunk Canada

Praise for the Weird West Tales series:

“A mad mixture of steampunk and magic set in an alternate Wild West, this is hugely entertaining and should please fans of SF and westerns.”
-Booklist, starred review

“Resnick has done his research, and fast guns, fast plotting, and a comfortably entertaining writing style make this novel a rollicking western with a steampunk tweak.”
-Publishers Weekly

“A fast, fun, and often-amusing tale where Wild West meets steampunk. . . . Told in a spare style reminiscent of a tale told round the campfire, The Buntline Special has a mythic feel. It’s a modernday tall tale with the requisite larger-than-life characters.”
-Miami Herald

“With great relish Resnick subversively refurbishes this notorious collection of fact and embroidery. . . .Clever and refreshing.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Brilliant. Scary, funny, often very moving. Left me wishing I could have shared a couple of whiskeys with Wyatt and Doc.”
-Jack McDevitt, Nebula Award-winning author of Echo
