Summary

Southwest Arizona, a century ago: an uneasy truce exists between the remote frontier community of Picture City and the neighboring Apaches. That delicate peace is shredded when the bodies of two white men are found hideously mutilated. The angry townspeople are certain the “savages” have broken the treaty, but Billjohn Finley, the local Indian agent, fears that darker, more unholy forces may be at work. There’s a tall, dark stranger in town, who rode in wearing the dead men’s clothes. A stranger who may not be entirely human.
Originally published as a mass-market Western in 1994, Shadow on the Sun has been largely overlooked by horror fans and general readers. But this tale of supernatural terror is sure to chill the blood of Matheson’s many fans.

weak plot

The story is melodramatic, the characters are superficial and predictable. Weak storyline with many unbelievable and pointless elements.

Matheson Western Horror Novel

If you're a Richard Matheson fan, this book is well worth your time. It's an excellent blend of two of his favorite genres.

The reader does a terrific job presenting the book.

Old West with a Mystical Twist

What did you love best about Shadow on the Sun?

Great storytelling with foreshadowing that created great suspense.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes that foreshadowed the ending - the Corcoran brothers observing the treaty talks and what happened to Little Owl.

Who was the most memorable character of Shadow on the Sun and why?

Billjohn Finley. He was formally educated yet had an understanding and appreciation for the native American culture and ways. He respected - and ultimately rightfully so - the Native American views on mysticism.
