Weird Western Double Update

Wildside Double #11: Judas Payne: A Weird Western, by Michael Hemmingson / Webb's Weird Wild West: Western Tales of Horror, by Don Webb (trade pb): In the tradition of the old "Ace Doubles" two-in-one books (flip one over to read the second title)--here is the eleventh Wildside Double.

WEBB'S WEIRD WILD WEST: WESTERN TALES OF HORROR, includes twelve startling stories--Henry James avenges his brother, Jesse, Robert E. Howard's serpent people are a modern gang, Satan flies a Zeppelin, and hobos liberate a zebra from a stolen train, among others. As Roger Zelazny said: "Don Webb can write straight tales or he can go out to the fringe, where the cutting edge hasn't even cut yet."

JUDAS PAYNE: A WEIRD WESTERN, by Michael Hemmingson. Judas Payne was the devil's spawn, a product of rape, a half-white, half-Indian outcast who was loved only by his pretty half-sister, Evangeline. When his father finds them naked in the barn, he takes out one of his son's eyes. Judas runs for his life, and meets up with a number of colorful characters out there in the "Weird Wild West."
