Just as legends and fragments of history from ancient Britain became the Arthurian tales we know the story of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, the Clantons and others, told and retold in innumerable stories and dramatizations, has became a great American myth. In Emma Bull's "Territory," some of the mystery of that brooding, puzzling tale is accounted to the hitherto unrealized presence of magic. It is a story of power, of compulsion, and of consequences. If Roger Zelazny had written a western, or if Susanna Clarke had reimagined the myths and legends of the American West, the results might have been something like "Territory." But only something like. Because nobody writes like Emma Bull."

Review quote

"Takes huge chances and achieves something distinctly wonderful... Readers will think about the story long after it ends, savoring the writing and imagining what the characters might do next."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Mesmerizing... Equal parts alternate history, fantasy, and Western. Remarkable."
""Lucid and genuine... Her achievement in making it all seem fresh and new is remarkable. Some of the exchanges between Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and others are genius-level in their sharpness and ingenuity."
--Jeff VanderMeer, "Locus"
