    One thought on “Spellslinger: Legends of the Wild, Weird West”

    1. This one started of quite fun! I really enjoyed the beginning, even if the prose needs some getting used to. It is a really weird mix of all sorts of things (fantasy, western, magic, scifi, drones, dragons, mystrals, ) that somehow managed to work for me!Why only two stars then? The end was an utter and total let down. All the book built up to finding and fighting that one dragon! And that battle just underwhelmed me completely. It also managed to up the weird to a point where I could only roll [...]

    2. I was first drawn to this story by the really cool cover (by Rodrigo González Toledo and Sol Devia).The blurb presents a fairly promising idea for a spell-shooting, gun-toting, fast-paced weird west story, but it’s written in choppy, incomplete sentences. I'm okay with that in small doses, but the story continues in the same vein. For no logical reason I can fathom, all but a few of those sentences are used on their own as paragraphs. It wrecked the pacing for me, which is a shame because the [...]

    3. I admit, I waffled between a 1 and 2 star rating and finally settled on 1 star.Bailey had the basis for a good story here. A magical gunslinger in a science fiction/fantasy world full of differing races, interesting technology, and even dragons. Unfortunately, there were a number of elements that dragged what could have been a fast paced weird west story and turned it into anything but.First off, Bailey's style choice for this novella is a weird one. Often individual sentences are their own para [...]

    4. 'I would take what I got, because that was all I would receive.'Koren D'uen is a Jelal, a gun knight, a spellslinger. His will is iron and his magic is indomitable. We learn this early on and come to get a sense of the limitless heat in our protagonist's hearth. With his brother's death, the man goes to seek revenge against an ancient dragon. With his trusty guns by his side, the Jelal goes on to do what he does best in this fantasy western.Let me start by saying that I've never read a western t [...]

    5. It was a good read -- I was not expecting it to be in first person, and the dialogue style threw me at first, but overall, it was a good read. I think the book fulfilled on its promise of 'Wild, Weird West', though I was hardly expecting aliens, they seemed to fit in to the world the author created. The one main issue I had was all the unanswered questions the narration itself raised, or implied through the story line. Though the main plot ended, many of the 'driving forces' were not. It left me [...]

    6. A fast read, and thebrief sentences of the text gave it a rhythm that made it easy to keep going. Cool world, but ultimately I didn't feel engaged with the characters.

    7. A fascinating blend of three very different genres, including certain expectations of writing style and characterization.Bailey gives the protagonist, Koren D’uene, a rich inner life that supports the honored image of the "lone hero of the West", who sees much and says little. The readers move through that inner life a step at a time, just ahead of the external details of the strange world Koren inhabits; we share his impressions of the situation at hand, get glimpses of the trail he has ridde [...]

    8. This book was a "fun" tale of revenge and danger. It had its foibles, but all in all I enjoyed it a lot.The biggest issue was the strange paragraph breaks. It worked sometimes at establishing a rhythm for the words, but could become confusing once dialogue was underway.Also, these people have magic technology and interstellar travel. Why no land vehicles?

    9. A magical gunslinger hunting a dragon in a world with similarites to the Old West, with elements of both science fiction and fantasy. What King's "The Gunslinger" should have been. Tons of fun, and (hint to the author!) I'm hoping there'll be more stories with this character in this world!
