"Sergio Leone would have killed to film
FISTFUL OF REEFER. Harry Turtledove would admire
the way history has been skewed. Others will love
the notion of Reeferpunk. The estimable Mr. Brown
has really latched onto something here."
-- Mike Resnick
Fistful of Reefer delivers a surge equivalent to a cocktail of 1 part serotonin, 2 parts adrenaline, with a dash of grenadine served over ice. This double-fisted, dieselpunk weird-Western resides between No Country for Old Men and The Three Amigos.
In 1918, when Chancho Villarreal and his friends inadvertently create the legend of El Chupacabra, they draw the attention of Texas Ranger J.T. McCutchen to their goat ranch and marijuana farm north of Del Rio, Texas. What follows is an action-packed ride across the wilds of a Texas haunted by rumors of Chupacabras behind every bush.
"David Brown has opened up a new genre in fiction for me
and I can't wait for him to write the next book." Theresa Mereszczak
"David really has a hand for action.
The sudden flood was one epic scene!" Marcus from Goodreads
"Perfect summer reading. Fun, different and engaging.
Anyway, my vote is get it!" Seth Neal
Gunslingers, Gringos and a Goat Killing Demon?
Fistfull of Refer is an unusual western. It's kind of like an exploration of Cowboy Counterculture. Instead of focusing on archetypal heroes of the old west, this story concentrates on peculiar characters in the margins. There is a aging Texas Ranger with a body that's breaking down, a spanish Thomas Edison (who reminds me of Professor Wickwire) and a crossbow wielding Warrior Woman. If you liked Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Lonesome Dove, or even Brisco County Jr, you'll probably enjoy this story.
This re-imagined Western tale takes place in early part of an alternative 20th century. I don't want to spoil the adventure for you, but there are some great moments where horse meets horsepower! This ebook offers something new and unexpected from a genre that can sometimes feel old and predictable...Happy Trails!
