The Unicorn Western by Platt & Truant: New Fiction Genre Born of a Joke and a Dare
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) December 23, 2012
A new genre of fiction, born of a joke and a dare, hit shelves in Amazon's Kindle bookstore today with the launch of the Unicorn Western. The book by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant, hosts of the Better Off Undead (BOU) comedy horror podcast, was the result of an off-topic conversation during the podcast.
When Platt joked on the podcast that he planned to write a Western without doing any research, his usual writing partner and third BOU host David Wright had severe misgivings.
Wright patiently explained to Platt how much research a 19th century Western needs. "Are you familiar with the medical stuff back then?" Wright asked. "Are you familiar with the guns that were used? Are you familiar with the smoke that comes out of a gun back then?"
