Product Description

Review

"A brilliant, bloody, violent dark fantasy - Charlie Huston turned up past 11."
- Andy Remic, author of the "Clockwork Vampire Chronicles"
"From its opening chapter, "The Dead of Winter" lassoed me into
its gritty world of gunslingers and demons. A page-turning thrill ride
of a novel that could well redefine your perception of the 'wild' west."
- Rio Youers, author of "Westlake Soul
"
""The Dead of Winter" ain't your granddad's Western. Lee Collins paints a picture of the Colorado wilds as cold and unforgiving as the creatures that inhabit them. And in Cora Oglesby, Collins has created a heroine as tough as saddle-leather, and as fiery and sharp as rotgut whiskey. Read it with the lights on - but for damn sure read it."
- Chris F Holm, author of "Dead Harvest" and "The Wrong Goodbye"

About the Author

Lee Collins has spent his entire life in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. Despite this (or perhaps because of it), he generally prefers to stay indoors reading and playing video games. As a child, he never realized that he could create video games for a living, so he chose to study creative writing at Colorado State University. Upon graduation, he worked as an editorial intern for a local magazine before securing a desk job with his alma mater.
Lee's short fiction has appeared in Ensorcelled and Morpheus Tales, the latter of which awarded him second place in a flash fiction contest. In 2009, a friend challenged him to participate in National Novel Writing Month, and the resulting manuscript became his debut novel, Dead of Winter.
In his spare minutes between writing and shepherding graduate students at his day job, Lee still indulges in his oldest passions: books and video games. He and his girlfriend live in Colorado with their imaginary corgi Fubsy Bumble. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Westerns and I have usually been rather reluctant companions; they're not really my cup of tea, but my husband loves them, so I'll have to sit through either Once Upon a Time in the West or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly once a year. As a consequence I've always been rather hesitant to pick up weird westerns, thinking I wouldn't enjoy them. But in my bid to broaden my reading and as the blurb and synopsis of the book sounded rather interesting, I took a chance on The Dead of Winter. It turns out westerns and I do get along, as long as they're combined with a strong, female lead and some supernatural shenanigans, things which Lee Collins offers up by the bucket load in this, his debut novel.

To my disquiet, it did take me awhile to get into book. I needed to get used to the rhythm of the prose and the stylistics of a western, and to connect to Cora. Luckily by the third chapter this was a fait accompli and I could settle into the narrative completely. Cora Ogelsby is a wonderful protagonist, with a fantastic voice and presence: very western, mixed with a bit of South. She's gruff, competent and all business, except when it comes to her husband Ben. Ben comes across as the weaker partner, or rather as the second fiddle to Cora's first. He's bookish and kind and doesn't seem cut out for the life he and Cora lead. While there are some great major secondary characters, these two lead the dance and the only one who is able to cut in is Fodor Glava, the main antagonist. His character is the only one who makes as big an impression as Cora and Ben do. However, I have to say that I loved Father Baez though!

Collins gives us an interesting world in The Dead of Winter.

As a fan of the Wild West and a huge fan of the Supernatural world I was really excited when I heard of this debut from one of Angry Robot's Open Submission period last year. What occurs within is a story of two halves, with the first feeling that the two principle characters were based on Sam and Dean Winchester with one being a short hard drinker (although female) whilst the other is soft spoken as well as tall who helps keep the fighter on an even keel.

Don't get me wrong it is fun, its inventive but getting past the preconception was quite tough. Don't get me wrong the writing is sharp as well as crisp with the combat delivering the gun totting alongside hand to hand combat that the reader will enjoy. Back that up with an author who as the tale expands appears to become more comfortable with the world as well as a better understanding of the characters and all in it's a lot of fun that many will enjoy.

Finally throw into the mix a whole host of chaos, a second tale that really steps out on its own and all in it's a series that I have high hopes for in future instalments. Great stuff.

A slightly different take on the usual vampire hunter genre, with the western setting which seemed very authentic, could just imagine watching that on the screen! Liked the twist with the husband, though I realised fairly early on something was off about him, though I did think he was a ghost! An enjoyable read, I would definately read any follow up books that come along.
