  1. Ooo, this theme has me wanting to go back and look for more western horror or fantasy stories. Just something about cowboys and desert environments really hit the spot!

  4. Yahoo! Love your Western escape theme. I want to read News of the World, too. I love Louis L'amour so I'll have to add that graphic novel to my list. Ha, the Sisters Brothers.

    Have fun with your reading and watching Western!
