Crossed Genres Issue Six: WESTERN is Live!

Apr 30th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Hooray for fruition! This post is all about what we’ve been working toward this month (and some of last month, too): RELEASE DAY! There is a special kind of commingled panic and relief on Release Day. Panic, because Disaster seems to enjoy threatening all good works at the last minute, and relief because we pulled it all together anyway. Now go! Read the new issue!

-On the post-apocalyptic plains, guard your water with your life; they’re worth about the same.

-The frontier is full of opportunity and tragedy, but anything can happen in the Wild West – even magic.

-Deserts are transformative places, even on Mars, where the first settlers are robots, not men.

-The difference between the good guys and the bad guys isn’t as simple as the color of their hats.

-Road trip! If your car breaks down, you’d better hope you’ve got something worth living for.

Saddle up and “Go West” in Issue Six of Crossed Genres Magazine, along with brilliant cover art by Nicc Balce and a fascinating article on the origins of the SciFi Western genre by Jeffrey Richardson, the Assistant Curator of film and Popular Culture at the Autry national Center of the American West.

  1. Eeeee! It’s so exciting! Thank you for the lovely write-up. 😀

  2. Simple but effective, I hope. Red Dust is a good story, and I was pleased to have it as an example of an alternative interpretation of the Western idea. Well done.
