Mechanoid Press Enters the Weird West

ATLANTA, GA—Mechanoid Press, the publishing imprint of writer James Palmer, is ready to head into the West with an all new anthology of Weird Western stories called STRANGE TRAILS.

STRANGE TRAILS will be the second anthology from the fledgling imprint, and this announcement follows close on the boot heels of publication of their popular collection of giant monster tales MONSTER EARTH, co-edited by Palmer and comics veteran Jim Beard.

“I’ve always been intrigued by the Weird Western,” says Palmer. “The subgenre encompasses everything from fantasy to science fiction, steampunk, and horror. It’s a fun mishmash of different styles and ideas.”
STRANGE TRAILS will include stories by familiar names in New Pulp and Weird Westerns, an all-star lineup sure to please new fans and aficionados alike. Writers for this book will be:

Tommy Hancock
Barry Reese
Joshua Reynolds
Joel M. Jenkins
Edward M. Erdelac

“I sought out people who were not only fantastic writers, but who have written Weird Westerns before,” says Palmer. “And I couldn’t be happier that they all said yes.”

Palmer is hoping for a mid to late summer release. So saddle up, oil your raygun, and mind the zombies. It’s going to be a weird ride down some Strange Trails.
