Pony Soldiers by curtsibling Pony Soldiers by curtsibling
Awesome old cowboy novel, discovered in a dank charity store in Glasgow.

Whoever replaces that horse on the cover with Twilight, I will carry personally across the gates of Horsehalla!

Which horse? The one that Native American looks like he is sodomizing or the top ones? XDDD 

This is a cool cover all said and done!

The top one...But now that you mention that lower horse being butt-devastated...

During a time when being a Rough Rider didnt mean being in a shitty hip hop wannabe gangster band.

It meant being part of a legendary western horseback riding cavalry that could take on an Empire from halfway across the world in an unfamiliar foreign land!

What empire? The indians? The book is set after the US civil war. :)

Er, the Spanish Empire... the Spanish-American war that took place only a few decades after the civil war.

I love novels like this. Old paperbacks are very entertaining and sometimes have better stories than most Hollywood blockbusters.

In my possession, I have a veritable jewel of a pulp novel. That is "The Book of the Dead" edited by John Skipp and Craig Spector. It's a compilation of short stories by various authors (including Stephen King) each giving a different take on what would happen if George Romero's zombies overran the world. It gory, dark, and entertaining as shit. And it was published c1989 - a full 14 years before the first issue of "The Walking Dead".

There is  charm sometimes in seeing that a pulp novel did it first. ;)

Damn right, sir!
The pulp books are a classic genre. I am reading a Sherlock Holmes offshoot at the moment.
It's called "The Infernal Device" by Mike Kurland, and has Holmes teaming up with Moritarty,
to defeat an insane Russian secret agent in London...The main hero is an American journalist,
and the book gives the view that Moriarty is not really as evil as Holmes makes us think, but
just a huge cynic when it comes to the law. It's faithful to Doyle's canon and a great read...!

That's really cool! As I understand, many authors have also taken their own shot at the Lovecraft canon. The fella August Derleth has added great monsters to the mix such as Ithaqua and Hastur the Unspeakable.

Derleth created a DIRECT Holmes homage/pastiche/rip-off who I believe lives in the same building or block as Holmes. The guy's name is Solar Pons.

Derleth did pick up the torch, but his christian beliefs led him to creating a "good and evil" version of the Lovecraft canon, which many disliked. Lovecraft was critical of religion and made his aliens utterly amoral. :)

Well, if you described the God of Abraham to space aliens they might have the same reaction. :lol:

Reminds me of the cartoon I saw years ago, where godlike aliens are standing outside their ship as
humans worship them. The captain refers to a bearded crewman: "Lieutenant Jesus! Is this your doing?"

I'm reminded of a joke I heard from Jackie Martling:

God is hanging out with the archangel Gabriel one day and says, "You know what, Gabe? I think I need a vacation. Just some time to chill out and get my thoughts together."

Gabriel says, "Why don't you take a trip back to Earth?"

God says "No way! No dice to that!"

"Why?"

And God replies "Hey, 2,000 years ago I banged this Jewish chick, and they're still talking about it!"

What can you expect from filthy little ponies?
Here's what you get when races are diverse!

Their skin's a hellish pink.
They're only good when dead!
They're vermin, as I said, and worse!


They're savages!
Savages!

Barely even horses.

Savages! Savages!

Drive them from our shore!
They're not like you and me, which means they must be evil.
We must sound the drums of war!
