Calamity: Being an Account of Calamity Jane and Her Gunslinging Green Man

Science fiction novels often present readers with distant futures set on distant worlds. But in Calamity: Being an Account of Calamity Jane and Her Gunslinging Green Man, J.D. Jordan takes the reader to the past, to the Old West, and shows us a version of history very different from the stories you may have heard...

I’m sure you’ve heard of Calamity Jane, but this is not a novel about Calamity Jane. At least not the Jane you may have read about. Calamity Jane is part of the legends of the Wild West, but long before she scouted with Custer or “Wild Bill” Hickok, she was a fifteen-year-old girl with a fiery temper.

Violence and tragedy turn young Jane’s world upside down and soon she finds herself riding with an alien gunslinger — the Green Man — through a landscape of revenge and betrayal.

Along the way, she learns how to shoot a six-gun and how to stand on her own, even when surrounded by Lakota warriors, and be respected. From space ships to guns that can shoot the wings off a butterfly a mile away, young Jane realizes that the universe is far bigger than the Wild West and that she can trust no one in it to save her but herself.

So, forget what you know of how the West was won. Forget the Indian Wars and Custer’s Last Stand. Instead, learn the truth of what happened when a young girl met a longrider she called the Green Man...

This outstanding debut novel from J.D. Jordan, a graphic designer and writer from Georgia, shows that he is a writer to watch!
