RIDING THE PULP TRAIL, the new collection of my grandfather's Western stories, will be available on Amazon very shortly! Like maybe today! Or tomorrow!
Matt Moring at Altus Press has done SUCH an amazing job with this book. Some of it won't be noticed until you BUY it and see inside. The chapter separators, the font, the way he used this photo of my grandfather, everything, is just gorgeous and seems to be exactly what a collection of vintage Western stories should look like. I want to thank Matt again for all his hard work on this.
I'll be taking copies with me to PulpFest too, so if you're coming you can pick up a SIGNED copy (signed by me, not my grandfather...if you can get his signature on it, let me know how you did it).
I often wonder what my grandfather would think of me publishing these stories now. I hope he'd be pleased. And probably mildly aggravated at how long it took for me to find them (about 5 years after the box of manuscripts was given to me). Oh well. Better late than never, Grandpa!
Speaking of Altus Press, if you haven't done so already, go over to their Web site - it's been redone and looks FANTASTIC. I love how Matt has presented the copies of available books right on the home page.
