The Badland is an unforgiving place. Every day it chews up the toughest of folk and spits them back out broken and bloodied, or worse. The sun will cook you alive, animals will rip you to shreds,
and the only way people know how to defend themselves against the bandit gangs occupying vast, empty stretches of desert between settlements is to shoot first and ask questions later.



Claire Munny and Morgan Jackson have only just started their dysfunctional partnership as contractors - guns for hire who roam the Badland in search of paying work. Maybe that means finding a
missing person or playing body guard, but it almost always means putting soneone in the dirt. Either way, the goal is always the same: get paid and survive another day. That's assuming they don't
drive each other crazy first.



Badland is a series of short stories about the contractors and their travels around the uninviting hell hole they call home. In search of work they'll go from the scorching deserts of the Long
Sands, to the forest peaks of the Red Rock Mountains, all the way down to the swamp lands of the Green. Along the way they'll meet struggling settlers desperate for a gunman, foreigners from
strange lands across the ocean, and no shortage of nasty types who want nothing more than to see the enterprising heroes dead. Fortunately, they're hard to kill.
