The Buntline Special (2010)
language
English
3.41 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Interesting concept: Steampunk meets Old West. I'd previously read Resnick's Santiago, and this has a very similar feel to it, except this story lacks the space-travel, and includes magic and is set in an alternate past. Robotic prostitutes, vampires, giant were-bats, native Am...

review 1: If you like your western history straightforward and factual than this book is definitely not for you. But, if you are willing to suspend your beliefs and let your imagination take a rocketing stage coach ride, then this book is for you. No vampire Bat Masterson this time, but th...

review 1: This is one of my favorite SFF novella's, in no small part because of the perspective it takes. I first read it in high school, and the story has stuck with me. The basic premise, a group of scientists from various disciples examining artifacts at a dig site, trying to study an a...

review 1: I randomly picked up this book while browsing through the just returned items. Surprisingly, although I usually can't bare to read anything that's so out there, I loved every bit of this story. It's funny and ridiculous and so imaginative. I believe it's Mike Resnick's character ...

review 1: Like its predessor, The Buntline Special, this sequel is a Steampunk Western, featuring Doc Holliday, Tom Edison, Ned Buntline, and many "new" characters to continue the story. There are more shoot outs, more killings, more Indian magic, more devices; all fun, lightweight reading...

review 1: I heard great things about this novella--it won awards in the science fiction community, for example--so I was on the lookout for a copy of it when I was at the World Science Fiction convention, held in my hometown this year.It was originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy...

review 1: This entry in the alternate history of Doc Holliday demonstrates that a good idea does not a good novel make. Sorry, Mr. Resnick, I respect a great deal of your work but this one just goes on a slow slide from poorly written to badly written.First, the only characters that are c...
