The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Western (genre)

Western fiction is defined primarily by being set in the American West in the second half of the 19th century, and secondarily by featuring heroes who are rugged, individualistic horsemen (cowboys). Other genres, such as romance, have subgenres that make use of the Western setting. (Source: genre fiction at Wikipedia ) (e)

Definition Quotes

I think Westerns are characterized by rough justice, revenge and vigilantism in the setting of a failed state(or a frontier that has a similar lack of good governance), where one is obliged to take the law into one's own hands due to the lack of althernatives. This equally describes the old west or the Japan of Kurosawa's movies, or other places. So the setting and the type of action in a western are intertwined, with the flawed hero being the lone gunman or sheriff for example, in an otherwise lawless place bringing justice.
