Reviews

NUNSLINGER is more serious than its name would imply. It is an exceedingly fun read with good people, bad people, blazing guns, chases, jailbreaks, derring-do and all sorts of wildness. But it is also the sort of complex morality tale that harkens back to the best of the Western genre - when writers used the chaos of the uncivilised society and the bleakness of the landscape as a setting for discussions of what makes us human. Sister Josephine is part of that great tradition, and, indeed, NUNSLINGER already ranks amongst the best that the Western genre has to offer.

I have no idea who is behind the pseudonym of Stark Holborn but whoever it is has written a gripping tale filled with well fleshed-out characters. The story is told in the first person through Sister Josephine. The superb series title, NUNSLINGER, and the cartoonish cover illustration hints at this perhaps being a comedy western but this isn't the fact. The story is an action-packed traditional western with some hard-hitting scenes. Sister Josephine's struggles to see more than goodness in people adding intrigue to the tale.

More fun than a rattlesnake in a barn dance brantub.

I love a good western, and NUNSLINGER is a great one. Sharp writing, moral ambiguity, and a story-line that will rope you in and won't let you go. Addictive and original.

Witty and atmospheric, with a cliffhanger every few chapters, NUNSLINGER is thrilling stuff, even if - as I used to think - westerns aren't really your thing. I galloped through the omnibus edition in one bumpy sitting.
