The Drop Edge of Yonder 2017 front cover by Rudolph WurlitzerThe Drop Edge of Yonder
"The most hallucinogenic Western you'll ever catch in the movie house of your mind's eye. What results is a genre farce with oracular power—a Queen of Hearts sutra, a court jester's Blood Meridian. With Drop Edge, Wurlitzer has considerably raised the stakes."
