Southwest Arizona, a century ago. An uneasy truce exists between the remote frontier community of Picture City and the neighboring Apaches. That delicate peace is shredded when the bodies of two white men are found hideously mutilated. The angry townspeople are certain the “savages” have broken the treaty, but Billjohn Finley, the local Indian agent, fears that darker, more unholy forces may be at work. There’s a tall, dark stranger in town, who rode in wearing the dead men’s clothes. A stranger who may not be entirely human.

Originally published as a mass-market Western in 1994, Shadow on the Sun has been largely overlooked by horror fans and general readers. But this tale of supernatural terror is sure to chill the blood of Matheson’s many fans.

A subpar effort from a great writer. Full old west stereo types, story really rambled with no direction.

absolute rubbish, the author is very talented but he must of had a off day when he wrote this.

Cliched writing and characters, and the "horror" of the monster was never as scarily horrible as it should have been. There were many instances of animal cruelty and disregard. The dialogue was off; the Indians (they were called that, not native Americans) used complicated grammar and cliches that were certainly not of that time period. My pet peeve, though, was this: when you have already said that a horse or pony is a mare or a gelding, then you KNOW its gender, so why refer to the horse as IT?
