Product description

Product Description

An enchanted blade. An evil old man. An ancient spirit.

The Weird West just gets weirder.

Hucksters Orville and Jimmy struggle to buy a decent meal.

When an old man asks for help with a supernatural pest, Orville smells opportunity. Jimmy smells danger.

And danger is what they find. Jimmy must retrieve an enchanted knife, while fighting a huge coyote, a shapeshifting opossum, and an ancient spirit determined to keep the blade where it is, all to save Orville from the old man's clutches.

The Black Blade is a weird western in Jeff Chapman's Huckster Tales series, mixing fantasy, comedy, and horror in an Old West setting. Climb up in the wagon and follow Orville and Jimmy as they once again plunge over their heads into supernatural trouble.

About the Author

I write software by day and speculative fiction when I should be sleeping. My work ranges from fairy tales to fantasy to horror and ghost stories. I've been writing all my life but decided to become super serious about it and pursue publication a few years ago. My work has appeared in various anthologies and magazines. I live with my wife, children, and cats in a house with more books than bookshelf space. Want a FREE fairy tale? Details at You can find me musing about words and fiction on my blog at
