BURNING BULB PUBLISHING
From John Russo, co-author of Night of the Living Dead™:
“By now almost everyone knows that the concept of the modern flesh-eating zombie originated in the sixties with Night of the Living Dead™. That’s why I think that this anthology of short stories paying homage to that fact is a wonderful idea. When I was asked to write such a story, I was told that each and every story in the book would have to take place in or around the time, in 1968, when the horror classic that I co-authored took place…
Perhaps, for you, dear reader, some of the stories you will read in these pages will take their place as some of your very own favorites. Please step back with me into the 1960’s – a time of peaceniks, rednecks and unspeakable zombie horror!!”

BURNING BULB COMICS
THE TAILSMAN was a short story written by GARY LEE VINCENT that originally appeared in the Bizarro-western anthology WESTWARD HOES. Adapted for comic by horror/bizarro writer RICH BOTTLES JR. (author of Lumberjacked, Hellhole West Virginia, & The Manacled) and illustrated by STUART J. BROWN (creator of the Annyseed vampire comic), THE TAILSMAN follows the adventures of Sly Franko as he makes his way across the old west.
He’s hot on the trail, looking for some tail…
Sly Franko was a man of the West, a forger of the wild frontier. Like the Country Western song that would be written years after he died, the words, “Faster horses, younger women, and more money,” seemed to be the anthem of this horn dog cowboy.
Franko would ride into town on a blazing saddle, find the closest saloon to wet the whistle, belly up to a good card game, and find him a hot-loving hussy to get his cowpoke on with.He would never stay in any one town too long, always mindful not to wear out his welcome and also mindful to glance over his shoulder from time to time just in case his ‘lady of the night’ from the night before happened to be married. The last thing Sly Franko needed was an angry husband hot on the trail of “The Tailsman.”
Yes, Franko quickly earned the nickname of The Tailsman and it would be an accurate statement to say he always seemed to find some tail on the trail wherever he would roam.
In Episode No. 1, Franko finds himself in the rolling hills of western Iowa where a visit to bathroom leads to terror and death. Can Sly and his buddies save the town and still get back to the Parlor of Pleasure in time for a game of cards and some gentlemanly fun? For mature readers only.
Howdy all you weird Western fans out there! This just in… Westward Hoes: 9 Weird Western Tales is now available on Kindle! For bizarro lovers, this also features the novella “Big Trouble in Little Ass” by Wol-vriey.
