By John Boyd

"A vintage '60s Western with well-handled SF underpinnings. An outlaw's mind is hijacked by way of a roaming alien missionary who acts as a neurologically supercharged "good angel". Cupidity is diverted into civic responsibility, lust is remodeled into familial urges, and so on. For a few cause, fried fowl appeared an incredible authorial preoccupation. worthy analyzing, particularly in case you have a gentle spot for real pulp motion leavened with SF weirdness."

' " Ian sat down as the preacher jumped quickly into his sermon. After fifteen minutes, Ian figured it might be time to excuse himself and go steal the horse, but a flurry of rain on the roof made him reconsider. Hiding out in weather like this, all night, waiting for the bank to open, could give a man lung congestion, and the lone saddle horse at the hitching rack didn't look like much of a mudder.
