COMPLETE 4-Chapter Weird Western!
Stanley "Buck" Weiss
About the author
Owee, have Ah got a humdinger fer
yew! Short but shriek,
as they say...or is thet jus' me? Well, yer ol' pal Caleb C. Crud
has dug up this four epeesode gem curtisee o' Buck Weiss, whose bizarre
little yarn caught our fancy and jus' won't let go! It's in the
nature of a "weird western", y'understan'. And feechures Maria
Faust, a sweet but tough as nails fillie who travels the wild west (or
in this case the "weird west")
procurin' arteefacts fer her employer, Reginald M. Wormfall's "Cabinet
of Curiosity". 'Course, being who she is, Maria freequently finds
her sweet self distracted doing good deeds, uptrodding the downtrodden,
and generally making a nuisance of herself where bad guys are concerned.
But yew're enterin' Pulp and Dagger territory now and we do things a
li'l bit different here abouts. So, don't be put off by Maria's
tasseeturn companion, Mr. Tall. He don't have a lot to say, not
some while at any rate... on account o' he's a zombie! And you know what Ah
say about zombies, doncha? There's nothing like a main corpse of
peasant under grass, heh, heh, heh...
An' now, on with The Cold Rock Gamble.
