The Traditional West Has Arrived!

Big news this afternoon: THE TRADITIONAL WEST, the first Western Fictioneers Anthology, is now live as an e-book for the Kindle. It should be available for the Nook in the near future as well, and a trade paperback edition is in the works, too.

And when I say big news, I mean it. At well over 100,000 words, THE TRADITIONAL WEST is the biggest all-original Western anthology ever published. There are 24 brand-new stories by some of the top Western authors in the business and some of the most talented newcomers to the genre. Here's the line-up:

The Silver Noose – Jackson Lowry
A Close Shave on Commerce Street – Steven Clark
Lost Mountain Pass – Larry D. Sweazy
The Poker Payout – Scott D. Parker
Blood Trail to Dodge – Robert J. Randisi
Sin of Eli – Troy D. Smith
The Way of the West – L.J. Martin
The Great Texas Kapusta Incident – James J. Griffin
The Death of Delgado – Rod Miller
Whiskey for Breakfast – Jerry Guin
Rattler – James Reasoner
Silence – Ross Morton
Never Trust a Widder – Phil Dunlap
Storm Damage – Pete Peterson
Catch as Catch Can – Matthew P. Mayo
Kataki – Chuck Tyrell
When Was It Going to Rain Again? – Dusty Richards
New Dog, Old Tricks – Edward A. Grainger
The Redemption of Cade Bouchard – Kit Prate
Boot Hill Neighbors – Clay More
The Kindness of Strangers – Cheryl Pierson
Wire – C. Courtney Joyner
Panhandle Freight – L.J. Washburn
Penance – Kerry Newcomb

I've read all these stories, and they're top-notch.  This is not only the biggest Western anthology ever published, I believe it's one of the best as well.  I can't recommend it highly enough.
