Welcome to the Weird West Roundup, where Westerns, Horror, and Supernatural fiction are pards. This is a site to discuss and promote Vintage Weird West, Weird Western Tales from the 1950s, 1970s, and stories from contemporary authors.
We’ll also look at other Western fiction mashups, including Sci-Fi westerns, Steampunk westerns, and other genres.
Though we’ll primarily focus on short stories, novels, and anthologies, there will be plenty of chances to ponder comic books, graphic novels, television, film and other media.
If it’s Weird and Western, it’s fair game. So saddle up and mosey on in to the Weird West Roundup!
YOUR HOST: This blog is hosted by Patrick Dorn. I read and write Weird West stories and novels. Personally, I’m particularly interested in the California Mission period (which is a mite early to be truly “western”) and New Mexico during the Republic years, 1821-1851. I’ve pitched my tent in Denver, Colorado, for nigh on 33 years, but originally hail from the City of Angels, California. You can learn more about me and the other irons in my fire at www.patrickdorn.com.
