    One thought on “Dead Or Alive”

    1. "Shaun of the Deadwood." OK, maybe not as comedic as Shaun of the Dead, nor as brutal as Deadwood, but you get the idea. It's violent, it's gory. And there were several times I laughed out loud. I love westerns, sci-fi westerns, old TV show westerns, steampunk westerns, wild west computer games, you name it. If it's Wild West, I'm there. Not so much a fan of zombies, but dang if this book didn't make me a fan of undead westerns! The novel has the same brisk, gritty style and clever banter as Wil [...]

    2. The melding of genres is a tricky business. Too much of one and the reader can often be left disappointed. Too little of either and it all seems a bit pointless. William Harms in his western-zombie mash tries his level best to find the right mix between two beloved genres, and the result is a partially successful mixture of classic western tropes and typical zombie mayhem.Dead or Alive follows John and Paul, two brothers who are chalk and cheese but have no-one other than each other as they atte [...]

    3. John and Paul are poor ranch hands just trying to make some money so they can one day own their own ranch. At least that is what John wants, where as Paul feels like everyone owes him something. After a run of bad luck, mostly caused by Paul they find themselves in jail. While locked up a sickness hits the small town and most everyone dies, only to rise back up to eat their neighbors.I LOVE zombies, I'm the person that already has a plan for when the zombie apocalypse comes. If it has anything t [...]

    4. This was definitely not the greatest read, barely two of the characters are even developed, but it was quite enjoyable. This book reads almost exactly how I envision the Deadlands rpg setting: intelligent malevolent zombies, crooked cowhands, crooked cops, lots of shoot-em-up and an apocalypse (a minor, localized one) created by Indian shamans out to fight back against white oppression.It's fun, quick, a little silly, bloody. A nice romp. One negative distraction for me though, and it clearly da [...]

    5. Zombies that talk. And talk crapok half the book of uninteresting characters to even see the first zombie. Lame, lame, lame.
