Straight Out of Tombstone

I am in this anthology of “weird west” stories, and it is a Monster Hunter story. Not only is it an MHI story, but it is chronologically the first MHI story. I finally got to write about Bubba Shackleford and the original Professional Monster Killers.



It is available for pre order now, and has got a great line up.

  1. What, no link to the pre order? Making me take an extra step to give you money? Where is the real Larry the C and what have you done with him?

    1. Clicketh yon imagery in the aboveness, and marvel at the Zon of Ama’s offer to let you order such a tome of wonder fully eight mo.. EIGHT MONTHS? OK, someone track down MHI’s pet Internet Troll, he’s gotta fix this. (Or it’s one of his gags, and thus he’s gotta FIX this.)

    1. It’s published by Baen, so it’s unsurprising that they gave top billing to one of their top authors. But then again, being unsurprising doesn’t mean it’s undeserved…

    1. Well, it would have to be a generic weird west, rather than Deadlands, since Deadlands is an actual IP owned by Pinnacle and licensed to a different publishing house. 🙂

  2. The origin story of MHI? Count me in on that. Not to mention some of the other big names out there. Thanks for the heads-up. Looking forward to it!

  3. Nice.

    Silly question – one of the other series I collect publishes some short stories as novellas and e-books, and later prints them as a collection.

    Any chance we’ll see the Monster Hunter short stories like this one as separate novellas? Not saying I won’t buy this book, but I’d like the stories to add into the series on my bookshelf.

    1. I’d like to see all the MHI shorter works collected in a single volume (including the “news interview” transcript from a few years back). I assume at some point that will happen, its just a matter of when theres enough material to justify such a release (though if you throw in the Grimnoir novellas to date, its probably there already).

  4. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant.

    Also, if Fistful of Warlocks is a Dresden Files story, I expect that Harry and his duster and .45 will cop so much teasing given that everyone’s made the snark that he looks like he walked off the set of El Dorado…
