Part Zombie…All Hombre.
"Calmly...Jones reaches into his coat and pulls out a straight razor. He snaps it open with a practiced snap of one wrist, the blade glimmering in the fading light. With a few measured strokes, Sam Jones cuts the noose from above his head, falling to the ground four feet below. He turns towards Quiera Junction in the setting sun."
How will this undead cowboy take his revenge? How can this story stay untold?
!Zombre! is the tale of one man’s revenge and another’s redemption. A conflation of the quasi-mysticism of John Ford westerns with the visual tropes of Sergio Leone and Italian horror, !Zombre! is by author, Nathan Crowder, and illustrator, J. Madmartigan Matthews. Widow and farmer William Hoyle has long sought the murderer of his wife. After many years, William must take action to protect Animas City and avenge his wife from an army of undead.
Timid Pirate seeks to entertain and delight, and the notion of zombies on horses makes us yelp with joy. If our project is successful, !Zombre! will be published in a non-illustrated screenplay format (8.5x11 inches), with an eye-popping full-color cover. We have set an initial goal of $600 dollars to cover the printing, ISBN and distribution costs for a minimum of 50 copies.
If funding exceeds our goal, we will increase the number of copies that see print, potentially reduce the price of the per copy production cost, and support the longevity and availability of this title through retail outlets and directly from us. The writing and design for this title are complete; we seek assistance for production. As a small nonprofit publisher, we seek to publish stories on the speculative fringe, and to always bring you Adventures Unlimited. Why? Because life can always use more laughter and awesomeness.
Bring it to life.
