The Cowboys of Cthulhu: A Weird Western Grindhouse Novelette

Watermarked PDF

NOTE: "The Cowboys of Cthulhu" also appears in DAVID BAIN'S GRINDHOUSE QUINTUPLE FEATURE - a collection of novellettes inspired by over-the-top B movie cinema.

From the pages of the Amazing Heroes anthologies, snake oil salesman Dr. Darius Darke and other "legends" of the Old West are called upon to fight a band of brain-eating bandits in a three-dimensionally-challenged box canyon. Being the long lost chapter of T. H., Thomasma's world-famous biography of "Gentleman" John Brodie (a.k.a. The Demon Duelist) - an infamous piece of "non-fiction" - almost published by Weird Tales Magazine in 1924, this astounding scholarly document from that rugged frontier of Our Fair Country's oft-misrepresented past puts many a historian's squamous quandry to rest!

David Bain is the author of GRAY LAKE: A NOVEL OF CRIME AND SUPERNATURAL TERROR and several short story collections. He teaches writing at a community college in Indiana. Watch for DEATH SIGHT, the first novel in the Will Castleton series, coming this summer.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
