Faster Gun: A Tor.Com Original - Elizabeth Bear Doc Holliday and some ladies investigate some mysterious wreckage in the desert near Tombstone...

I saw this was one of the nominees for the Locus award for best short stories. Since it was free on Tor.Com, I figured I'd give it a read.

Since it's a short story, there isn't a lot I can say without giving away the best bits. All you need to know is that Doc Holliday is the main character and there are time traveling magic-using ladies and a wrecked alien ship in it.

Oh, and it's a damn good story. Elizabeth Bear's writing is really good. I'll be picking up more of her stuff in the future.

On a side note, will I ever be able to picture Doc Holliday looking like someone other than Val Kilmer?
