How the West Was Zombed – Part 1 – The Stand


U.S. Marshall Rainier Slade and his trusty deputy Gunther Beauregard are joined by traveling snake oil salesman Doctor Elias T. “Doc” Faraday in a stand against the nefarious Buchanan Boys.

Strap on your chaps and get ready to ride back to the Old West, 3.5 pardnahs.  This here’s the first part in an ongoing novel sure to appease the Mighty Potentate.

Chapter 1             Chapter 2         Chapter 3

Chapter 4            Chapter 5          Chapter 6

TRIVIA: By now, Old West movie buffs may have figured out which actor Slade is a parody of.  Feel free to share if you caught it.

Any idea who BQB had in mind when he created Gunther?  HINT: think TV instead of movies.

Oh, and if you’re one of them cowpokes who prefers a mobile friendly format, mosey on over to Wattpad.  Hell, BQB only started posting this story up there on Wednesday and its already ranked #932 in Wattpad horror.

Let’s keep it going, shall we?

  1. Clint Eastwood? John Wayne is way too obvious and the two were very similar in their westerns. I like it a lot so far. You do however need a smidge more editing here and there.

  2. There are just some places where you don’t follow the rules of grammar and punctuation separate from where it’s purposely done in language. And you don’t have to follow them all the time if that’s your choice, but it did break my story flow. LOL

    • Thanks and I’m glad you like it. Yeah, I’m pretty much in the beginning stages. I write a little, then rewrite, post it up here and on Wattpad, looking for reader feedback. Comments motivate me to keep going as I assume if no one’s commenting then no one’s reading. There will be plenty of revisions and eventually I hope to hire an editor.

      If you happen to spot anything that could be changed, feel free to let me know. This is all a big learning process for me. Studying the English language never ends. Just when I think I know everything I learn something new.

    Howdy 3.5 Cowpokes,

    Here’s the first part. I reckon y’all might not have had a chance to sit a spell and give it a gander.

    Please help me make this novel all it can be as the Mighty Potentate is breathin’ down my neck to get a book published somethin’ fierce.

    – BQB
