Praise for Tombstone Blues by Chadwick Ginther:
"Ginther layers his rejuvenated Nine Worlds with a crackling good narrative and action set pieces that practically cry out for a Guillermo del Toro adaptation (I'm seeing Josh Brolin as a good choice for Ted)."
-- Corey Redekop
"The bookâ€™s action set-pieces could anchor a Peter Jackson movie, but itâ€™s the personal side that adds depth."
-- AE - The Canadian Science Fiction Review
"Ginther's mythos, bringing Norse gods and magical creatures within Manitoba's borders, is complexly woven..."
-- Winnipeg Free Press
