Judas Payne

(2010)
A Weird Western
A novel by

 
 
Judas Payne was the devil's spawn, a product of rape; a half-white, half-Indian outcast who was loved only by his pretty half-sister, Evangeline. When the Reverend Payne finds the two naked in the barn, he takes out one of Judas's eyes, and Judas chops off one of the Reverend's arms and then runs for his life. He meets up with a number of colorful characters out there in the weird wild west, from a white slave-trading ex-Confederate colonel to a gun-slinging assassin who quotes scripture as he slaughters his targets.

Meanwhile, unknown to Judas, Evangeline Payne has been sold to a brothel and forced to engage in the most vile sexual acts with any man who pays for it....

In the vein of Joe R. Lansdale's weird westerns, this dark novel is Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name meets Deadwood meets Cowboys and Aliens. Jump on your horse and take a ride.
