Calamity

J.D. Jordan. Heliosphere, $16.99 trade paper (304p) ISBN 978-1-937868-47-5
Before the world knew her as the Wild West rogue Calamity Jane, 15-year-old Martha Jane Canary was ripped from her family through cruel circumstances and employed by an alien, with Jane’s horse, Bess, her only friend. Then that alien and his other human employees are murdered. Another alien she calls the Green Man, a cold-hearted assassin, kills the killers and reluctantly agrees to let Jane tag along with him. The path they blaze through the West includes seeking revenge for the murders, fighting other aliens, and going to war alongside Crazy Horse’s band of Sioux. 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. Agent: Andrew Zack, Zack Company. (Sept.)
