Strange magics run amok in the wild west of days gone past, times unknown, and into the far reaches of the future. Ms. Kurtz offers us twelve stories that run the gamut of classic western tales but each with an unexpected twist. You’ll find yourself in a world both comfortingly familiar and tantalizingly unorthodox as you saddle up to ride with The Sisters of the Wild Sage.

This book reads more like an early draft. Stilted writing, tense changes, misspellings/wrong word endings, and a ton of repetition. The concept is interesting, but the execution needs an editor.

If you enjoy vampire fiction, don't let this one slip under the radar.
I've been enjoying vampire fiction for many years, everything from Bram Stoker to Charlaine Harris to Octavia E. Butler, and yet this anthology was chock full of things new to me. New stories, new authors, new ideas, new perspectives.
As with all anthologies, some stories are stronger than others, but overall it is a beautifully varied and nicely structured book, with some exciting digressions from the usual vampire tropes.… (mais)
