Undead in the West II free pdf The undead are back! In Undead in the West: Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, and Ghosts on the Cinematic Frontier, Cynthia J. Miller and A. Bowdoin Van Riper assembled a collection of essays that explore the unique intersection of two seemingly distinct genres in cinema: the western and the horror film. But this mash-up of genres is not limited to either the big or small screen, and other noteworthy depictions have infiltrated all manner of media. In Undead in the West II: They Just Keep Coming, Miller and Van Riper expand the examination of undead Westerns that they began in the previous volume to include not only film, but literature, sequential art, gaming, and fan culture (fan fiction, blogging, fan editing, and zombie walks). This volume's essays run the gamut from comics and graphic novels such as American Vampire, Preacher, and Priest, to games like Darkwatch and Red Dead Redemption, to novels and short stories by celebrated writers including Stephen King, Joe R. Lansdale, and Robert E. Howard. Featuring a foreword by renowned science fiction author William F. Nolan (Logan's Run) and an afterword by acclaimed game designer Paul O'Connor (Darkwatch), this collection will appeal to scholars of literature, gaming, and popular culture, as well as to fans of this unique hybrid.
