Here, as I promised, is one of the Paul Powers stories that appears in RIDING THE PULP TRAIL. This is "To Steal a Ranch," and before it appeared in RIDING THE PULP TRAIL, it had never been published.
But before you start reading, I have some explaining and instructions. I originally was going to post this in a Microsoft Word document, but Blogger, in their infinite wisdom, has made it impossible for me to break paragraphs with their new design. It didn't matter what I tried, I couldn't get it to format. Some things I tried even made it worse. (Has anyone else had this problem and been able to fix it? Because if this keeps up, I'm going to ditch Blogger.) But this is good for you, because, after trying several things and not succeeding, I gave up and decided to go another route. Instead of reading the story in plain text, you get to read jpgs of the original manuscript! The only problem with this is that you'll need to click on each page to read it, and hopefully you'll be able to get the print big enough to read. It's going to be a pain because the story is 18 pages.
But it's still pretty cool to read it this way.
Now one final thing: a favor to ask. If you like what you read, tell other people to come over and read it. And if you haven't gotten your copy of RIDING THE PULP TRAIL, you can buy it via softcover here at amazon, and the Kindle version is available here. And if you have an iPhone or iPad, you can get the e-book for your device here.And NOW, without further ado and immediately after you read this sentence because there are no paragraph breaks, is "To Steal a Ranch"!!
