It wasn’t until recently that I was aware that Al Sarrantonio wrote Westerns as well; I’d only known him as a horror writer – specifically his “Horrorween” books. When I found “West Texas”, I was pleasantly surprised.
It starts off mysteriously when two strangers meet at a campfire. One stranger turns on the other and the tale then turns to what we would today call a “serial killer” story.
As of this writing (June 29, 2011), I haven’t completed the book, but should have it done by the 4th of July weekend. What I have completed thus far, though, tells me that this is one to remember long after you’ve finished it.
