Tension builds as a Texas Ranger is pinned down by an outlaw's rifle fire and a deadly diamondback crawling over his legs.
Laughs abound when a man fights to maintain his own identity in the shadow of his famous, deceased grandfather Davy Crockett.
Fear strikes while shape-shifting coyotes prowl outside the shack of a sole line rider in secluded ranch territory.
All this and more raise the stakes and turn conventions upside-down. BEAT to a PULP's TRAILS OF THE WILD offers the boldest and most thrilling Western tales from the sharpest wordsmiths of our time.
(My short story "Rattler" is included in this anthology. I'm looking forward to reading the others. TRAILS OF THE WILD is available in both e-book and print editions.)
