I greatly enjoy Craig Johnson's writing, but, even better is listening, through Whispersync, George Guidall narrate Walt Longmire.
While driving, especially, I listen every chance I get to Guidall's splendid voice as Walt, the Cherokee Nation and Vic, the irascible sidekick/lover of the worn-down but not yet broken sheriff of fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming's least populous county.
I loved most all of these short stories, but, probably my two favorites were Slick-Tongued Devil and Messenger. The former shows Longmire at his cunning best, while the latter is strictly humor but with a focus on The Cherokee Nation's spiritual nature.
I also liked the introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips, who portrays the Cherokee Nation, or Henry, or Bear, as you prefer on the hit A&E TV series.
Yes, I agree with others that I get a slightly bigger kick out of the full-length novels, but I still got such a fun ride reading and listening to Wait for Signs that I'm giving it five stars. I am addicted to Walt Longmire, the greatest Western character since Tell Sackett.
Oh, if Craig Johnson happens to read this review, I have a suggestion. Do a novel focusing on Henry Standing Bear years earlier, just after he returns from Vietnam to, say, the love of his life. And how that affected him so that his friendship with Walt brought him back from the brink of suicide, until he saw signs from an eagle or an owl and that his real purpose in life was to protect Walt for the sake of Walt's daughter. Or something like that
Meantime love everything Caig Johnson has written that I have read to date. And one of the best authors...he's so good he spoils you for other favorites even. Short stories narration can vary too...so get rid of the auto questions...how is the authors writing...you could leave that one in...but
1. Old Indian Trick
2. Ministerial Aide
3. Slick-Tounged Devil
4. Free Bird
6. Several Stations
7. High Holidays
8. Toys For Tots
9. Divorce Horse
12. Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighhorns
If you've never seen Longmire or read any of the books or stories, you too are in for a treat. Just because you can write a novel, doesn't mean you can write a great short story, but checking out an author's short work can let you know if you want more. After enjoying these bite-sized doses of Absaroka Co, Wyoming's sheriff, Walt Longmire, with his best friend Henry "Standing Bear", his deputies Vic & Sancho, and his daughter Cady, along with a parade of colorful characters to fill things out... you too will leave this book with a fully satisfied feeling of contemporary western goodness. Just be careful about what you are drinking or eating at the time you are reading, as some of it might end up being snorted out your nose, or be otherwise lost and scattered, as you laugh, cry, and cheer through these fabulous short stories. :D
