    1. The book more or less had me when the Indian rides into the frontier town on a dead horse to challenge the town sheriff to a magical duel at high noon.It's a story about Jake, a kid from the plains who has a gift for magic. Magic however comes with its own troubles. When you're a chatterer (a specific type of magic user from the story's setting) everyone wants to challenge you to prove they're the best at what they do. These contests more than often prove fatal, and soon Jake is run out of town. [...]

    2. I read this book years ago. I really enjoyed it. It was an interesting twist to add to the wild west. I would recommend it.

    3. Gérard Klein l'a déjà dit, et je ne reprend que ses mots. Plus qu'un genre, la SF est une espèce littéraire permettant l'expression de tous les genres classiques.

Bref, l'odeur de la poudre m'attirait pas m [...]

    4. Here's an interesting concept: The post-civil war Wild West, except people are developing magical powers (and no, this is never explained). The book starts off well ("The shaman rode into town on a dead horse"), and exploring the wild west with magic is fun, but the book doesn't stay that great, unfortunately. It's hard to put my finger on why; The book is competently written, and the setting is certainly imaginative. I think what it comes down to are two connected issues, namely the book's paci [...]

    5. Du fantastique à la sauce western ? C' est pas courant, mais ça existe ! Un Custer sorcier qui fait régner la terreur dans l' ouest et qui prépare une guerre totale avec les indiens, et il n'en faut pas plus pour amorcer un récit plein d' aventures et de dangers. Enfilez vos bottes, ajustez vos Stetson pieds-tendres, la poudre va parler !
