Earth has unfolded. Reality has stretched out into its more true and more terrible shape. Now, an insane cowgirl stalks the prairie in search of her missing brother... while a heartbroken lover confronts the creature masquerading as his stolen house. A refugee from a lost dimension ponders the impossible existence of cheese, and there's just another guy with a whole planet for a head. The Last Sane Cowboy & Other Stories collects Daniel Merlin Goodbrey's Isotope Award-winning short story alongside five other surreal tales of life... and death on the Unfolded Earth.Overheard:
Renowned Internet personality Casey Ontiveros says "I will admit that most of them are very well written and have recycled soul of Julie Schwartz (Grant Morrison still hasn't had the drugs that Schwartz had for breakfast) all over them. Short stories that have a beginning, a middle, and an end, something that has been missed much lately in the mainstream (ha ha ha!) comic book market which has arcs that go on for six issues to tell you that someone was in the can for six months taking a dump. And there still are minor plots that haven't been resolved. LSC&OS is all about taking ideas and turning them weird.
"Sane men in a saloon. Escaped mime children that grew into singers, writers and poets. Planet-heads who rave that they're an original and never had the velcro 'cause you know, he got it back in like, 95. A guy who could bleed an arachnid (which one I would never say because it's just too weird). Like my favorite show on television, it references a Bowie song, a man who fell to earth.
"Now, most of the stories seem to have a common element of being displaced. Time, space, reality, emotions. Displacement always seems to be the key element in all the stories. In fact it's the only common element that binds the entire book. The idea of being displaced from any aspect of life/reality... and that is the strongest element of the book."
