The Territory

by Emma Bull 

The novel takes place the classic Western town of Tombstone, Arizona, involving a character who learns far too much about events that will shake the town’s foundations. The classic American western story of the OK Corral is infused with fantastic elements while keeping the story’s basic structure. 

All the classic characters, including Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, are twisted into a new tale of might and magic in the American west. The atmosphere and feel of the classic western landscape nicely fuses with the magic and fantasy without feeling too out of place. 

History is diced up in Bull’s fiction, and through the excellent writing your conception of what a western is (or was) will never be the same.
