Review: Starburst Gives DMH 8/10 Stars

Starburst reviews Dead Man’s Hand, giving it 8/10 stars: “Starburst is a massive fan of short story collections and the very best have more hits than misses. This is very much the case for Dead Man’s Hand, and Weird West is an offshoot of science fiction/fantasy that we will be paying closer attention to from now on.” [review]
