Latest purchases/Good story

I picked up the books I ordered with B&N, only three of them came in:

1. Wild Cow Tales by Ben K. Green - Thirteen stories about Ben's days of catching wild cows. This should be good!

2. Roy & Lillie, A Love Story by Loren D. Estleman - Roy Bean and Lillie Langtry fall in love. This should be just as good!

3. A little diversion from the old West is A Matter of Honor by William C. Hammond. This is the first in a series of sea novels. "Bill Hammond brings the American Revolution to life in this outstanding blend of drama, action, and romance infused with details so rich you'll feel the blast of cannon and taste the salt in the air," so says Suzanne Giesemann, Commander, U.S. Navy (Ret.), author of Living the Dream, so states a back cover blurb. Can't wait to get into this one.

I also ordered Beat To A Pulp, Vol. 1, short stories edited by David Cranmerbut it wasn't available. I'll have to order it from Amazon.

A short story titled Six Guns and Pitch Forks  by Matthew Pizzolato at Fires on the Plain  is worth spending a few minutes reading. Fine story!


  1. Oscar, I'm currently reading Loren D. Estleman's GUN MAN — an absorbing tale written in a refreshing style. I need to make a reading debut with BEAT TO A PULP.

    1. I like Mr. Estleman's novels. You can't go wrong with BTAP, Prashant, or the web site either.

  2. I like Estleman not sure about the others but they sound good. Think I will give, "Six Guns and Pitch Forks," a try, thanks for the tip.
