More About the Author

Edward A. Grainger is the pen name of David Cranmer, who was born and raised in New York, though his heart has been in the Old West since his father introduced him to Gunsmoke at a young age. He is author and creator of the Amazon best-selling Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles series, as well as The Drifter Detective and The Lawyer series, and he's a charter member of the Western Fictioneers.

He is also editor and publisher of BEAT to a PULP webzine and books, and as a freelance writer, his reviews have appeared on the Macmillan sites Criminal Element and Tor.com. But by far his favorite role is that of father.

With ADVENTURES OF CASH LARAMIE AND GIDEON MILES, Edward A. Grainger has given fans of traditional Westerns something new and exciting to sink their choppers into. Not a fan of Westerns? Been a while since you've tucked into one? Prefer crime stories? No worries, these stories are as much crime, action, and adventure tale as they are Western. But all that genre affiliation aside, these are damn fine stories.

It would be an easy thing to go on and on about the tightly crafted plots, the characters so well rendered they feel as if they're speaking to you and pulling you into their adventures with them, the satisfying feeling of finishing one of these stories--and then finding there's another one to go, the disappointment at coming to the end of the book (though I've been told there are more such adventures to come)....

But what really should be said is that Edward A. Grainger (aka David Cranmer) is one of the most important writers of the new pulp movement, and these stories are very much worth your time. And for a buck? Egads, don't tell me you're still reading this review! Click "Buy Now," sink spur, and hang on....

I confess, until I read Grainger's Cash and Miles stories, I always thought of Westerns as dusty, dated affairs. But Grainger proved me wrong. His blend of Westerns and crime fiction is pitch-perfect, bringing out the best in both genres. His take on the prejudices of his characters' time is both modern and nuanced, commenting beautifully on both their peers' biases as well as those our culture still carries today. And lordy, are these stories thrilling.

This collection is a steal at any price, and what Grainger's charging here, you'll feel like you just got away with something buying it. Just hope they don't send ol' Laramie after you; he don't take kindly to thievin'...

If you took a razor blade and ran it down a wet canvas half dripping with black ink, then smeared it into the white area, you'd get a good replica of the characters Edward Grainger draws out in Cash & Miles. The backdrop is late 1800's. Times are harsh. A shot of whiskey doesn't go far. Cash is the harbinger of the law, but he bears much more than this, he bears a conscience that is often at disagreement with the law. It's this inner battle that carries the reader eagerly through the stories and wanting more. Miles holds my favorite shoot out scene in "Miles To Go." He's full of spunk, grit and is a sort of cornerstone to the series. There's a bit of everything for everyone in the book: gunfights, love, humor, horror, friendship and grit. One of my favorite reads for this year. I highly recommend, especially for those who are fans of Stephen King's Dark Tower books.

I did enjoy the short stories for the most part. The two main characters are interesting and likeable. I would have enjoyed these a lot more as a book rather than a group of short stories. You don't get a good flow of their adventures as it is...just stops and starts with another adventure. The one thing I disliked was the way the old time slang was thrown in at points. Sometimes it was as though the sentence was put in just so the slang could be used and it just felt awkward. I would still consider reading more by this author as that was not a major problem.

This book is a series of old west short stories. Each short story is one of the adventures of US Marshals Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles. Each story stands alone and deals with moral issue. The characters are nicely developed and the plots interesting. The book is a very quick read (I read it in an afternoon). I found the stories interesting and I enjoyed them.

Recently, while working on my review of the Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles Volume II, I realized I had never read the first book of the series. I have no idea how that happened. It was clear that I needed to read the original book, Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles and do so immediately.

After a short introduction by Chris F. Holm, it is on to stories starting with “The Wind Scorpion.” The plan had been to escort a prisoner by the name of Black Jack Larson to Cheyenne, Wyoming to stand trial for the murder of a circuit judge. Instead, the plan now is to somehow stay alive as Black Jack, with the help of two of his men, have beaten the heck out of Marshal Cash Laramie and left him to die while making good on their escape.

“Kid Eddie” features a young man being held in jail in Vermillion for various heinous crimes. It is about a year after events in “Wind Scorpion” and Cash is well aware that duplicity can come in many forms. Cash doesn’t want to go anywhere Vermillion but when Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Devon Penn tells him to bring “Kid Eddie” aka Eddie Morash back Cash saddles up and goes because he has a job to do.

“Miles To Go” unites Cash Laramie and his friend and fellow Marshal, Gideon Miles, in the hunt for Van Jones. Though it does not look that way as this complicated story begins with Miles hitting the trail alone. Both lawmen know that van Jones is heading for his hideout near the owl Creek Mountains. Once there he will have his gang backing him while Cash has to stay in town and testify in court regarding another matter.

People keep dying at the McAllister family plot. Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles are in Twin Falls trying to figure out what is going on in “The Bone Orchard Mystery.
