Shadows from Boot Hill
Publisher: Galaxy Press
Date: October 2011
Duration: 2 hours 11 minutes
Every man walks with a shadow . . . but what happens when he acquires a second one? Just ask Brazos-a dead ringer for Jack Palance who’s a cold-blooded killer for hire with blood on his hands and a posse on his tail.
Desperate for cash, Brazos accepts $200 to gun down a local man named Brant. He’ll earn every penny . . . but in the end there’ll be the devil to pay. Because to put a bullet in Brant means putting one in his partner as well-an eerie stranger schooled in the black art of witchcraft. This is one killing that brings with it a deadly curse-and a second shadow.
As Brazos is about to discover, the Wild West doesn’t get any wilder than when a man is damned to live-and die-in the Shadows from Boot Hill.
A note from L. Ron Hubbard, written many years ago, that could as well be addressed to you, today’s reader: "Dear Range Boss: Four million of my words have been published in fifty different magazines. . . . Just now I’m larruping fantasy fiction more than anything else, though I’ve been writing Westerns for some time, too. Hope your readers like Shadows from Boot Hill. The Old West was superstitious in the extreme and . . . reeks with more fantasy than The Arabian Nights."
Also includes the Western adventures The Gunner from Gehenna, in which a plot to steal a miner’s gold reveals how a good man can go bad . . . and a bad man can do good, and Gunman!, the story of an aging gunfighter turned lawman who shows his town what a real man is made of.
"Creates a true theater of the mind experience and is very highly recommended." -The Midwest Book Review
