There’s things out there that you ain’t dreamed of.
Like back-from-the-dead mountain men, green ghost mountain spirits, carrion stallion, time traveling mad scientists and zombified buffalo…just for starters.
This weird western novella starts at a gallop and gathers momentum faster than a stampeding avalanche.
You will never look at a severed head the same way again.
I knew that Steve Vernon was a good writer when I found myself cheering for a decapitated head. – Adrienne Jones – author of Gypsies Stole My Tequila
This is, simply put, the wildest western horror romp of recent years. In his new novella, "Long Horn, Big Shaggy," Steve Vernon has taken icons of the Wild West, combined them with elements of H. P. Lovecraft, H. G. Wells, and George Romero, and created something unique in both voice and scope that will stick with readers long after the tumbleweeds have rolled off down the path. – Cemetery Dance (David Niall Wilson)
One of the most gleefully scatological and outrageously clever novellas I've ever read - found myself wondering "Well how in tarnation is he going to top THAT?" as I moved from chapter to chapter, and Vernon somehow managed to do it. He's got the gift. - If you've got a taste for over-the-top gross-out stories in the campy mode of the Evil Dead movies, this is definitely a book you should look into. – The Goreletter
Long Horn, Big Shaggy is absolutely brilliant. A wonderful, twisted tale that is perfect for campfires and stormy nights. Steve Vernon has excelled as a writer and is one of the finest new talents of horror and dark fiction. – Owl Goingback, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Crota.
The Wild West just got a whole lot wilder. Long Horn, Big Shaggy takes gun-toting cowboys, their horse and even buffalo – and gives them an unabashed zombie makeover. – Rue Morgue Magazine
Laced with sardonic wit, visceral imagery, and dialogue that will have you laughing out loud, this is the Old West as seen through Hell’s left eye. – Tim Curran, author of Skin Medicine.
