  1. Oh man, the drug-induced epiphanies I had about the links between Spaghetti Westerns and Zombie Flicks years ago in another life...

    Nevermind the Conan/Western thing.

  2. Cool article. Moore is the creator of Northwest Smith, though, not Brackett (you got it right later on in the piece, so just a mistype at the start). Brackett's Eric John Stark has a Spaghetti Western, vibe.

    I'm surprised you don't mention El Topo. Jodorowsky might be able to handle the Spaghetti Western bit without Leone's help. ;)

  3. Yo Blair; Zombie Westerns are cool. Deadlands was one of those RPGs that I always wanted to play, but could never find a group into it. As for Conan, yep, Howard's glorious bastard kicks tail in the Wild West or even in the Far East. You just can't keep a good barbarian down. Not for long. Especially if they regenerate or are a zombie with six-guns.

  4. Trey: You are right. I edited-out the Leigh Brackett references (Eric John Stark) and missed the mention in the front. It'll get fixed ASAP. Thanks for pointing that out. Yikes. I do not want to get C. L. Moore cranky with me.

    I thought about mentioning El Topo, especially as it is about as Surrealist as you can get...but I have not been able to see the whole thing yet. Just bits and pieces. But you are correct, Jodorowsky could pull off a western all on his own, definitely, but if he was collaborating with Leone it would go in a different direction and that alone could make it worth the trouble. I'm going to see if I can track down El Topo out on the internet...it could serve as the seed kernel to a whole post in and of itself. Again, thanks for the comments and input. Loads more on the way...
