Nomad's Trail - E. Hoffmann Price
This collection of pulp Western stories is now available from the always excellent Black Dog Books, and I'd recommend it highly even if I hadn't written the introduction for it. E. Hoffmann Price was always an above-average pulp author, and these yarns that were somewhat inspired by Robert E. Howard's humorous Westerns are well worth reading. NOMAD'S TRAIL reprints the first twelve stories in the Simon Boliver Grimes series. I had read a few of these before, but reading them in order makes them even better. By all means, if you're a Western fan or just a fan of fast-moving, action-packed pulp yarns, you should check these out.
