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....
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'...
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.Read more ›

The writing is a little light at times, but for a short western, the stories are palatable. Not my favorite, but good enough to consider Vol II.Published 1 month ago by LeeBo

In all honesty, the Western genre has never been high on my list; I'm more of a mystery/thriller/horror reader. I picked this one up on the recommendation of a friend….. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Will Graham
But this wasn't a good Western.

I've really enjoyed the characters in these short stories. This title includes an introduction to a related character of more modern times. Different era, still great writing.Published 9 months ago by Dave M.
