Publication: Ballantine Books, 2014, New York

First edition. 12mo. Author's first novel. Quarter cloth and paper over boards, titles stamped in silver on the spine, [6], 211 [2] pp. "Mild-mannered sheep farmer Albert Stark is fed up with the harsh life of the American frontier, where it seems everything and anything can kill you: Duels at high noon. Barroom brawls. Poisonous snakes. Cholera-infected drinking water. Tumbleweed abrasion. Something called “toe-foot.” Even a trip to the outhouse. Yes, there are a million ways to die in the wild, wild West, and Albert plans to avoid them all. Some people think that makes him a coward. Albert calls it common sense. But when his girlfriend dumps him for the most insufferable guy in town, Albert decides to fight back - even though he can’t shoot, ride, or throw a punch. Fortunately, he teams up with a beautiful gunslinger who’s tough enough for the both of them. Unfortunately, she’s married to the biggest, meanest, most jealous badass on the frontier. Turns out Albert has just discovered a million and one ways to die in the West." This book is based upon a screenplay written by Seth MacFarlane & Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild. A hilarious first novel in which the movie starred Seth MacFarlane and Charlize Theron. Fine in dust jacket.
