Imagine: A fantasy world, but not one based on Medieval/Dark Ages European culture and myth, but rather on the tropes of the Spaghetti Western and Chinese Wuxia. Add steampunk elements. Mix well. A fantasy world that mixes the inspirations of Django and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon... The Good, The Bad & The Ugly and House of Flying Daggers... Fistful of Dollars and Fist of Legend. A fantasy world that's explored through a book series, a constantly-updated website, a tabletop role-playing game, comics, artwork, webseries and much, much, more. This is FAR WEST. Tales of the Far West is the first book in Adamant Entertainment's Wuxia-Western mash-up, featuring a dozen all-new tales written by critically-acclaimed and award-winning fantasy, science-fiction, horror and adventure authors, including: "He Built The Wall To Knock It Down" by Scott Lynch: A master teaches an unforgettable lesson in the pursuit of excellence in all things. "In Stillness, Music" by Aaron Rosenberg: A wandering musician is all that stands between a village and a cattle baron. "Riding The Thunderbird" by Chuck Wendig: A herd of giant, flightless birds, a young girl, and a sudden lesson. "Purity of Purpose" by Gareth-Michael Skarka: Who seeks the secret of the Unsurpassed Weapons? "Paper Lotus" by Tessa Gratton: A strange girl tasks a wounded man to deliver a crucial message. "In the Name of the Empire" by Eddy Webb: A sheriff is charged with the murder of an Imperial Magistrate. "Errant Eagles" by Will Hindmarch: A gunslinger faces the consequences of his past. "Railroad Spikes" by Ari Marmell: A bandit finds that he's robbed the wrong train. "The Fury Pact" by Matt Forbeck: An inventor's son faces the responsibility of his name. "Seven Holes" by T.S. Luikart: An apprentice learns the true nature of demons. "Local Legend" by Jason L. Blair: Red Phoenix was dead, and the bounty hunter tells the tale. "Crippled Avengers" by Dave Gross: A band of fighters seek to take revenge on the steam baron who crippled them.… (mais)

Per se I like crossgenre when it is well done [which is seldom] and only sometimes like pulp. This is both but does such a good job that it got past my prejudices. I bought this book for the Forbeck story [excellent as usual] but enjoyed the entire collection enough to start considering sampling the other authors other works. I wish they had done a companion world book so I could better grok the universe but hopefully that is coming in the future. If you liked either the recent Cowboys and Aliens or the old Eastwood spaghetti Westerns you will love this book. Well worth the price. ( )

This is a set of short stories set in the Far West universe, which is a transmedia setting with a fiction and RPG line in the works. It is a Spaghetti Western meets Wuxia meets steampunk setting, which means you get stories full of six-guns, swords, bionic arms, acrobatic stunts, saloon fights, sheriffs, Marshals, airships and the like all jumbled up. The first and last stories are the best of the bunch in my opinion. ( )
