A 30-minute episode of Gunsmoke elongated into a 90-minute format. It's almost shocking how sloppy and blase this is, considering the author has a relatively high reputation in the mystery/horror/sci-fi genre. Obviously, he has little relish for the western, so why in heaven's name would he take it up in mid-to-late career. As a genre it's in its death agony, with limbs still twitching while the CNS has shut down. ( )
