Taken He Cannot Be

“Taken He Cannot Be” by Will Shetterly features Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, and a hunt for a unicorn mixed together with the hunt for Johnny Ringo. Yeah, you read that right. A unicorn. The movies Tombstone and Wyatt Earp both seem to have missed this detail. Normally this is the sort of thing I would skip if I didn’t know who the author was, but Shetterly belongs to the Shadow Unit clan, and that’s street cred enough for me.

“Taken He Cannot Be” is a tight little western with good interplay between Doc and Wyatt, some humor, some violence, and all in all, it’s a good short story.

The story was available for free on one of Shetterly's blogs, but it was accidentally deleted. According to the blog, it will be back up sometime. When it is, it's well worth reading.
