Western news


Published March 3rd is the fourth in Mike (James Reasoner) Jameson's Tales from Deadwood series. I would urge anyone interested in westerns to buy this book - James is a great writer and sales will ensure the series doesn't go the same way as the TV series. I'm still mourning the demise of that series.

WESTERN FANS - Don't forget this Monday sees The Archive publishing part two of Chap O'keefe's long out of print classic, The Sheriff and the Widow.

Shuana order from the book depository and it's free postage worldwide. You should get it delivered than by the start of July. All the best.
