''Deadwood'' meets Cthulhu in this wild and profane Western romp featuring zombies, werewolves, evil spirits, and one tickedoff gunslinging preacher.The Wild West has never seen the likes of the Reverend Jebediah Mercer, a hard man wielding a burning Bible in the battle between God and the devil, in an endless struggle he's not sure he cares who wins. With its five stories laced with fastpaced action, nonstop humor, and spine tingling horror, ''Deadman's Road'' is your ride to hell, in which a vengeful shaman curses a town by conjuring a seemingly unstoppable army of the undead; an illadvised shortcut leads to a bees' nest of terror; a man stands condemned, not for murdering his wife but for raising the Lovecraftian horror that killed her; a woman is attacked by werewolves and left for dead in a ghost town; and a mining camp faces off with a horde of cannibalistic fiends.
