Seth MacFarlane Releases A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST
MILD-MANNERED SHEEP FARMER ALBERT STARK is fed up with the harsh life of the American frontier, where it seems everything and anything can kill you: Duels at high noon. Bar-room brawls. Poisonous snakes. Tumbleweed abrasions. Something called 'toe-foot'. Even a trip to the outhouse. Yes, there are a million ways to die in the wild, wild West, and Albert plans to avoid them all.
Some people think that makes him a coward. Albert calls it common sense.
But when his girlfriend dumps him, Albert decides to fight back - even though he can't shoot, ride, or throw a punch. Fortunately, he teams up with a beautiful gunslinger who's tough enough for the both of them. Unfortunately, she's married to the biggest, meanest, most jealous badass on the frontier.
Turns out Albert has just discovered a million and one ways to die in the West.
This is the first book from the multi-talented superstar creator of Family Guy, American Dad and TED, marking the start of MacFarlane's career as an author.
The film adaptation of the book starring Seth MacFarlane, Liam Neeson, Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried is due for release in May 2014.
The author will be in the UK at the end of May, though press opportunities may be limited.
