Praise from Kurt Russell, Joe R. Lansdale, Ed Lee, Booklist, Jack Ketchum and more:
"Zahler's a fabulous story teller whose style catapults his reader into the turn of the century West with a ferocious sense of authenticity."
Kurt Russell, star of Tombstone, Escape from New York, Dark Blue, and Death Proof
"It would be utterly insufficient to say that WRAITHS is the most diversified and expertly written western Ive ever read."
Edward Lee, author of The Bighead and Gast.
"If youre looking for something similar to what youve read before, this aint it. If you want something comforting and predictable, this damn sure aint it. But if you want something with storytelling guts and a weird point of view, an unforgettable voice, then you want what I want, and that is this."
Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Bottoms, Mucho Mojo, and Savage Season
"[C]ompulsively readable . Fans of Zahlers A Congregation of Jackals (2010) will be satisfied; think Quentin Tarantinos Django Unchained. [C]lever mayhem ... leads to a riveting climax."
"WRAITHS always rings true, whether it's visiting the depths of despair, the fury of violence, or the fragile ties that bind us together for good or ill. It's a Western with heart and intelligence, always vivid, with characters you will detest or care about or both, powerfully written."
Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door
"Wraiths of the Broken Land is a classic Western that's been twisted into the shape of a snarling monster, shot full of violence, anger, and pain, and dipped in horror. [I]t will please fans of crime, horror, dark fantasy, and literary fiction alike. It's a brutal and wonderfully gritty tale full of darkness and superb writing."
