About the Author

ROB DEBORDE's first book, Fish on a First-Name Basis (2006, St. Martin's Press), reads suspiciously like an indispensible guide to everything wet and edible with nary a zombie in sight. His award-winning online show, Deep Fried, Live! with Tako the Octopus, does, however, feature undead clams and mutant prawns, and his forays into film, television, and videogames have been chock full of supernatural beasties (particularly Good Eats). Portlandtown is his first novel. DeBorde lives downriver from Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Sue, and a pug named Chloe.

Reviews

"Deborde crafts an exhilarating hybrid of grit, guts, dusty cowpokes, and rotting flesh, honoring genre conventions without succumbing to cliche and anchoring black magic in realistic contexts of politics and family dynamics." --"Publishers Weekly"

"DeBorde's extraordinary first novel, a dark fantasy set in the Old West, tells a compelling tale of the battle between evil personified and a remarkable family with special abilities. Fans of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series will enjoy discovering this accomplished writer." --"Library Journal "(starred)

"A fantastic read, a dark supernatural Western full of curses, magical powers, hoodoo men, and resurrected outlaws. Better yet, it's thrilling, compulsive reading packed with a menagerie of very cool characters. Bring on more of the Oregon Wyldes!" --Christopher Golden, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Father Gaetano's Puppet Catechism"

"Move over, Spaghetti. Rob DeBorde serves up his fantastical horror Western with a pioneering apple pie--spirit that is all-American genre-bending fiction at its finest." --Bryan Fuller, writer, creator, and executive producer of "Hannibal", and writer, creator, and producer of "Mockingbird Lane"

"A unique and fascinating horror novel. Cowboys, the supernatural, steampunk, "and" zombies . . . Portlandtown has enough to keep even the most demanding genre fan satisfied." --David Moody, author of "Autumn"
