Preston Cobb is always looking to make a quick buck selling any kind of gun he can get his hands on, but when the denizens of the weird west get in the way, Preston's his own best customer. Now collected in one omnibus, join Preston as he faces an ancient evil in the snowy Sierra Nevadas in ABOMINABLE, finds romance and bloody mystery in Nevada mining country in SILVER MOON, and squares off with the undead south of the border in DEAD TO RITES. Finally, Cobb finds retirement more exciting than he'd like in an exclusive bonus short story: GUNRUNNER TO THE STARS.

Short and well, not sweet. I liked that these each followed the same character, but were each different little adventures. He encounters a little bit of everything. I think the mix of Wild West with the Paranormal/Horror was definitely an interesting twist! I liked that the writer as able to put a lot of material in short stories. They didn't read as short stories and the collection really went well together to feel like a longer novel of Cobb's adventures.
