Really honoured to receive such a positive review from Nicole at On Spec, a preeminent Canadian SFF magazine!
A+ world-building in this one. The Wyrd West is set in the post-apocalyptic Canadian prairies–a new wild west only with magic. Alongside the traditional gunslingers, desperados, First Nations people, saloon owners and courtesans, there are also necromancers, elves, gnomes, Mantis-folk, and some steampunk technology. Even the common elements have been tweaked to be just a little different–the courtesan’s guild runs a spy network and the saloon owner has a prosthetic hand. I especially enjoyed the gunslingers’ magic and code of honour: the Mark of Cain they wear after killing a bandit, the vigil to the Lord and Lady, the blessed ammunition.On Spec Magazine
