Calamity Jane but this is not a novel about Calamity Jane  At least not the Jane you may have read about Calamity Jane is part of the legends of the Wild West but long before she scouted with Custer or “Wild Bill” Hickok she was a fifteen year old girl with a fiery temperViolence and tragedy turn young Jane’s world upside down and soon she finds herself riding with an alien gunslinger the Green Man through a landscape of revenge and betrayalAlong the way she learns how to shoot a six gun and how to stand on her own even when surrounded by Lakota warriors and be respected From space ships to guns that can shoot the wings off a butt. Calamity is a Wild Weird West version of the story of Calamity Jane Being an account of Calamity Jane and her gunslinging green man Her green man is an alien one of two species visiting earth and he has antennae and huge eyes odd powers and rather better strength and reflexes than humans He s also a dead shot and wants off earth while dishonest humans want his tech especially the space ship he plans to travel home on When something happens to that ship something also happens to Jane and she tags alongand eventually becomes his partner a fellow longrider and a dead shot who can than take care of herself The novel is presented in three books where she recounts her adventures to a newspaperman but you uickly get lost in the first person nature of her fights for survival and for her Green Man to help him get off earth I devoured this in one sitting and I m not even fond of WesternsEvery single western clich you ve ever read gets turned on its head but it does not feel like artifice It feels very real a hell of a trick for the author to pull off in his debut novel RECOMMENDED

J.D. Jordan · 6 review

“Jordan's weird western snatches the best adventure and suspense elements from both genres and distills them to their essences creating a violence laced but enjoyable romp” Publishers Weekly “Calamity is a lesson on how to do it right Highly recommended” Peter David New York Times Best selling Author “J D Jordan's Calamity is a satisfyingly gritty intense and entertaining novel that deserves the attention of speculative fiction readers It's something different because it offers a fascinating glimpse into the early life of Calamity Jane It's uite an extraordinary sci fi Western romp” Risingshadownet I’m sure you’ve heard of. Writing in the vernacular of the Wild West and nailing it in a way that will appeal to historical purists while also tickling fans of Firefly and Deadwood Jordan gives us Calamity Jane s origin story with a sci fi twist she comes of age with a prehensile antennaed green skinned alien as her sidekick Jane is violent when she has to be and as profane as a grizzled frontiersman but also shows tenderness and emotional vulnerability Rooting for her and her laconic gun slinging green man during their adventures is as easy and satisfying as taking a dip in a spring fed pond on a hot summer day Mount up and enjoy the ride
