Have you seen the dark, strange corners of this big ol' stretch'a land called the West? Sure, you've heard the stories of gunfights and gold rushes, but that ain't the half of it. Not by far. Have you met Dr. Mirablis and his miraculous elixir re-vitae? Or heard the real story of the Ghost Dance and the man they call Walking Wolf? How about Sam Hell, the Dark Ranger with a taste for blood? Looks like you need yourself an education, and there ain't no teacher better than Nancy A. Collins. Dead Man's Hand collects her acclaimed novellas "Walking Wolf" and "Lynch," the short stories "Calaverada" and "The Tortuga Hill Gang's Last Ride," and completes the five-card draw with the all-new vampire Western novella "Hell Come Sundown." The West has never been wilder ... or weirder. Book jacket.… (mer)

Dead Man's Hand: Fives Tales of the Weird West by Nancy A. Collins

The sheer variety of emotion and tone of this volume lies at the heart of its strength. The first story was one of the best vampire stories I've read in a long time, weird west or otherwise. I loved the humour of The Tortuga Hill Gang's Last Ride, featuring the devil's son as Little Red. And in between there was the heartwarming pathos of Walking Wolf.

The inclusion of indigenous American voices in this anthology was very welcome indeed. Walking Wolf is a first-person account of the life of William Skillet, a white child raised by the Comanche who then discovers that he has the gift of being a vargr, of werewolf. It was a profoundly sympathetic tale of a young lad who doubly belongs feels himself to be an outsider in a world increasingly dominated by the white settler community. Other stories also featured characters from Native American tribes, including Pretty Woman in Hell Come Sundown and Katie Small Dove in Lynch.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book for its inclusivity, its variety and for its gritty detail which made the weird west features of the stories incredibly vivid indeed. ( )

This was an awesome collection from an author I've only read one story from before. I enjoyed every story and love the weird west setting.

Below are note on each story that may contain SPOILERS. These are more for my notes.

Hell Come Sundown - 7.0 - Cool, vampire hero story set in weird west.
Lynch - 8.0 - Very cool, gets raised by frankenstien's partner, gets revenge on this killers. Not sure what happened to the really cool pistols he had. They seemed like they could have been really cool but got forgotten about.
Walking Wolf - 6.5 - Pretty cool, vampires and werewolves in the wild west but then it turned into the history of the American Indians, which is cool but kind of jolting and it made the story really long. Not super happy with the ending either.
The Tortuga Hill Gang's Last Ride - 7.5 - This was fun, loved the characters.
Calaverada - 6.5 - Short but good lite/bloody fun. ( )
