    LET SLEEPING GODS LIE is an unabashedly Lovecraftian tribute in the sub-subgenre of "Weird Western, " a category to which I'm becoming attached. Hardhitting, violent, with a wide range of characters and a finely-tuned ear for the xenophobia of the Old West, LET SLEEPING GODS LIE is a cautionary tale on why we ought to do exactly that: leave the Old Ones in their eons-deep Slumber.

    Good, fast read It's an interesting world, obviously rather dark and brutal. There is a plot, but the book skips from fight to fight at a zooming pace. Very fun, over before you know it.

    Best left locked up with the Sleeping Ones. I love Cthulhu, I love weird westerns, but this one didn’t do it for me. Racial stereotypes were off-putting, even more than the era called for. There’s great peeks at some mythology, Lovecraft and Native, but only peeks. The last two chapters finally grabbed you, great suspense building, only to end abruptly and felt anti-climactic. I felt like things were really starting to get good and maybe I’d be left wanting more. Instead it came across like “oh.. Best left locked up with the Sleeping Ones.

I guess it’s done now... time to awkwardly go our separate ways...” Or maybe I’m just bitter because I finally saw a version of my name in a book and he’s a giant, ugly, racist, murder as well as an implied rapist?

    My first read of author David J West and it certainly didn't disappoint. From gritty western action to spellbinding fantasy that knows no bounds, this book was quiet yet action packed all at the same time. The main character Porter reminded me of Colin Bohanan from Hell on Wheels and the main character from Skin Medicine not afraid to speak his mind and not afraid to get his hands dirty. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I was able to read it at a good pace, understood what was happening and w My first read of author David J West and it certainly didn't disappoint.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I was able to read it at a good pace, understood what was happening and with a book that has Bigfoot and Cthulhu in it how could it possibly be bad? I enjoy weird westerns and this one is what the genre is all about. Guns, magic, creatures and a whole lot of chaos in order to restore order. If your looking for a weird western to read this is the book for you!

    Reminents of Cowboys & Aliens A quick read that escalates quickly, this western tale is filled with the idea of "ghost stories" and beliefs of "old gods." It has an interesting take on a traditional western drama consisting of petty squabbles and thievery until an ancient artifact is unearthed and beings trouble to Porters door. The idea of the story is good, but the inconsistency of the names of the characters troubled me a bit.

The idea of the story is good, but the inconsistency of the names of the characters troubled me a bit. There were also a few times the narrator repeated himself unnecessarily, which bothered me a bit. However, I did enjoy his descriptive writing. Based on a pretty predictable ending, this book for me was more of a 3.5 with strong potential. If you enjoy westerns, you'll definitely enjoy the tone and plot of this story!

    Do you want to be entertained? Cosmic Horror. Action. Adventure. A heady mix of folklore, mythology and magic thrown together to create a pressing whole. West writes to entertain and enthrall and he does so with break neck pacing and we'll drawn characterization. It's a pleasure to read this weird western, recommended without reservation.

    “Let Sleeping Gods Lie: Book 1” had an interesting mixture of action/adventure wrapped in a blanket of ancient mystery and 'alien' folklore. An exciting, yet odd, other-worldly, old western to say the least. Not as dark or creepy as I thought it would be, but it did have a slight Louis L’Amour feel to it. Loved reading those books with my Dad as a kid. “Let Sleeping Gods Lie: Book 1” had an interesting mixture of action/adventure wrapped in a blanket of ancient mystery and 'alien' folklore.

    Creepy fun I enjoyed it and I didn't see anything that I found objectionable as a 68-year-old lady. It was creepy without being gory and robust without being Blasphemous or Gross. So thank you very much! Creepy fun I enjoyed it and I didn't see anything that I found objectionable as a 68-year-old lady.

    West delivers a story that reads like it's a masterful blend of Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft! I'm a sucker for weird westerns and West never fails to deliver. This story is action-packed and hits all the right notes. I loved all the nods to Lovecraft. West delivers a story that reads like it's a masterful blend of Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft!

    Blazing six-guns and Old Gods Well written weird western adventure. Fast paced and holds your attention right from the very first page. Well worth reading.

    Pleasant romp short on horror A fun derivation of Cthulhu, but far more in line with August Derleth than Lovecraft. Less horror and more adventure.

    Not a bad read I picked this book up because I’ve always been a fan of Cthulhu and the darker forces of the word. The ending was kind of meh, but it was a good little read

    Gripping read from start to finish Porter continues to delight and amaze with the breadth of his adventures. This time out in gold country and with an unfortunate find ...
