Dime Novels

I'm always on the lookout for western books and I ran across an ad in True West Magazine for Tales of the West dimenovels. It turned out to be the site for Author David Brooks, member of Single Action Shooting Society and Western Writers of America. This is his sales site showing the books, collections and gifts he has for sale and his bio, in which he says, "I try to bring creativity to the printed page while further exploring the concepts of morality and social issues of my earlier work."

Some of the titles listed are:

 Left for Dead
The Gathering Storm  
A Hanging at Horse Creek
Guns of the Arroyo
Dry Springs
Hell is Never Full

The titles are interesting and evoke a mood of excitement and suspense, and you can check them all out at I admit I haven't read any of these, but will add dimenovels to my TBP (to be purchased) list. Take a look and see if you agree.


  1. I've actually heard of this site. I don't know if I've ever had a good look though.

    1. You may find something you need there.

  2. I too have heard of this site. Kind of off the subject I bought (about 30 years ago) 3 dime novels, the real thing. They are pretty weak stories but neat looking little things.

    1. I can't recall ever reading a dime novel although some of the pulp magazines cost a dime.
