Black Horse Extra News

Black Horse Extra, the online magazine devoted to all things western and presided by Keith (Chap O'Keefe) Chapman's always been the place to go to for information on the state of play regarding western fiction. The free online magazine was started way back in 2006 and for six years it came out on a quarterly basis, and although the Archive is saddened to report that there will be no new issues we can see the sense in this.

This week the following message appeared on the Black Horse Extra website:

Black Horse Extra appeared as a quarterly online magazine for six years from March 2006. It promoted the western genre and the work of authors published by Robert Hale Ltd in the Black Horse Western series of hardback novels sold mainly to the UK public lending libraries. Today, most of the active authors run personal blogs and websites. Links to some can be found lower in the column to the right, while past editions of Black Horse Extra can be accessed using the links to the left.
Lately, the number of hardback books published monthly has been reduced and readers have been offered more modestly priced ebooks online. BHW titles are now widely available in digital format from Robert Hale and several other companies, including Piccadilly Publishing, Western Trail Blazer, Western Fictioneers Library, and Black Horse Extra Books. Excerpts can be read (and the books conveniently downloaded) at Amazon and other ebook retailers.

The website though will remain as will the excellent archive of back issues so it's not all bad news. Head over there, via the link  CLICK
