THE WESTERN SERIES TOO TOUGH TO DIE
The series that dominated the entire western genre for most of the 70's and 80's, books that had the same effect on the literary genre as the Spaghetti westerns did for its celluloid counterpart, a series that is still hugely popular with rarer copies of the old books going for triple figures. At the time of writing there is a copy of Edge 61: The Rifle, the final Edge book that sold for £1.75, on Ebay and the current bidding is up to £60.
So what is it that makes this the western series that refuses to die? Find out next week when the Archive goes over the edge to bring you the Edge week. In the meantime check out the Edge You Tube teaser below.
