About Author


  1. Cowboys and Aliens wasn’t a great commercial success, so let’s trying Sixguns and Spaceships??? I seem to remember back in the early 80s Indy boom there was one about a semi-western/over the road trucker saga where the main character was a nun/assassin/trucker, but the title of it escapes me. It was actually pretty good once you got past the cliche of the good nun gone bad, and it proved that mixing genres can work. Also, there was Dalgoda/Flesh and Bones, which was awfully good also if you can find it.
