Karl Edward Wagner Essay

Today I received my author's copies of BLACK PROMETHEUS: A CRITICAL STUDY OF KARL EDWARD WAGNER, a new chapbook published by Gothic Press that includes my essay "Gunslinger From Prussia: The Adrian Becker Stories of Karl Edward Wagner". I'm no expert on Wagner or his work, and I'm certainly not what you'd think of as a scholarly, academic critic. But the Becker stories (there are three of them) are pretty darned good blends of Western, horror, and alternate history, and I enjoyed writing about them. I'm looking forward to reading the other essays in the book.
