    Andromeda Gun (1974) a perfunctory comic novel involving a parasitic Alien in the Old West (incognito aliens were a favorite with Boyd).

    Reading is difficult for me because my eyes have become quite weak, so when I pick up a novel, it's a genuine leap of faith. Andromeda Gun was, on the whole, worthy of my meager store of faith, a classic '60s Western with well-handled SF underpinnings. An outlaw's brain is hijacked by a roaming alien missionary who acts as a neurologically supercharged "good angel". Cupidity is diverted into civic duty, lust is transformed into familial urges, etc. For some reason, fried chicken seemed a major authorial preoccupation. Maybe he typed this out while living over a chicken joint, forced to vacate his usual digs whilst waiting for royalty checks which probably never came.Worth reading, especially if you have a soft spot for genuine pulp action leavened with SF weirdness. BTW, I read the French edition which had a pretty trippy cover, better than the US cover shown above.

    Fun, short, light sci-fi. With Mormon, stake presidents, polygamists, gun fighters, aliens, angels.

    Cowboys and aliens! A weird, yet weirdly entertaining, little novel.

    Funny story in a dead-pan way.
