Horror Western Novella, BLACK, Featured on GREAT JONES STREET

Eryk Pruitt has taken over Great Jones Street this week and he’s chosen my horror western novella, BLACK, as the story-of-the-day. You can read it in full HERE. Also, look at this artwork. Oh my god.

Someone sold Charlie Lansdale’s soul to the devil. Now he lives a life of crime and tragedy he’ll never escape, much like the jail cell of the small Texas town in which he sits when Hell comes to collect. Outside is a chaotic horror show, and there’s nothing Charlie nor Marshal Ray Bennett can do about it.

It’s kind of an older story, so it’s a bit rough, but I still think it’s pretty good. I’ve been toying with the idea of rewriting it into a full-length novel, actually, so this comes at a nice time. BLACK was originally published in an anthology called WELCOME TO HELL then was later reissued as a standalone through Hazardous Press (which has, of course, gone under). What do you think? Interested in reading a novel version of this story? Let me know!

Also, if you haven’t already ordered Eryk Pruit’s new novel, what are you waiting for?
