Out today is a new episode of The BCS Audio Vault: 018: Mister Hadj’s Sunset Ride by Saladin Ahmed, a Weird Western tale of a strange old man from the Old Country told by his bounty hunter companion as they trail a devilish quarry.
It’s introduced by the author, explaining the story’s aim in exploring the fun tropes of Westerns while presenting a seldom-discussed aspect of the history of Muslims in America.
“Mister Hadj’s Sunset Ride” in its text version also appears in our brand new ebook anthology Ceaseless West: Weird Western Stories from Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
Ceaseless West features great BCS stories by Kenneth Mark Hoover, Peter Darbyshire, Mark Teppo, E. Catherine Tobler, and Gemma Files. It will be released early on Apr. 23 at Weightless Books, along with a BCS ebook sale, and at other ebook retailers the following week.
