Today I have a cool story from a commenter (Eccentric Cowboy) that I wanted to share because it’s basically Dinosaur Cowboys but in the 1860-1870 era instead of future-retro-ey like the game :)
The author seems like a gun enthusiast so all the good stuff like lever-action and elephant guns are there (he’d probably love the “Bronto Gun”). As well as important questions like What Kind of Gun to use Dinosaur Hunting? (the answer is obviously a laser based Lever-Action rifle).
Anyway you can see his announcement here and read other dinosaur + explorer related info at his main blog: http://eccentriccowboy.blogspot.ca/
From the author:
“Primal Frontier is a Weird West alternate history setting in the 1860’s and 1870’s on a massive continent that is populated by all sorts of exotic creatures from our past, the most prominent being dinosaurs. It is a primitive and savage land, bristling with dangerous animals and hostile natives. This land of mystery and peril has been only scarcely explored. But brave men and women will venture into the unknown and encounter all manner of adventures.”

So far the story is meant to be the first in a series. It’s only available for Kindle on Amazon (if you don’t have a Kindle there is a downloadable PC app, or you can read in a webrowser with their great Kindle Cloud Reader page). You can buy the story here for less than a cup of coffee:
I picked up a copy today so I’ll update this post in the future to let you know what I thought.
