Question: What happens when you try to make a western with vampires and robots? Answer: You get a strange little 6-page comic book called Gray Metal. This short story is an experiment. I would love to revisit it at some point, polish it up, maybe mash a few more genres in there (I really think this story could benefit from an added element of Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling) and see if I could make something longer and more substantial out of it. As a stand alone short story, it's an amusing read. It's kind of short, but, you know, that's more or less par for the course as far as short stories go.
