Very cool story. Normally I'm not a fan of westerns, but this was an enjoyable story. Would like to see more stories set in this universe!

Hello Fellow Writer,

I'm glad I stumbled upon this piece, as it's truly a work of great imagination!

I love how you combined elements of the Old West with Sci-Fi to give this story a unique feel. It was rugged and dirty, yet technological and laser-like. In my opinion, you ought to continue. I know it's not the only story of its type probably out there, but it has enough unique elements in and of itself for you to expand and make a whole "Ballad of John Bingo," his travels, or something of the like.

My only suggestion that I can think of at the moment would be this:

Your story has so many original elements that it was almost a bit disappointing to see a typical bad cowboy vs. good cowboy shootout in front of a bar, even if it was on Mars. Don't get me wrong, the fusion of a Western and Sci-Fi are what help make this story, but the originality is also a key player. If you could only figure out a unique villain and plot for this universe you've crafted, I think you'd have a home run in the works.

All in all, great job! Keep Writing!
