There are monsters in the West. There is evil, lurking in the blood-soaked hills and bone-strewn plains. But there is also Hawthorne-scarred, enigmatic, deadly, driven by an all-consuming rage to seek out and destroy evil wherever he finds it. Without mercy.
But how long can one man fight the demons before becoming one himself?
HAWTHORNE: TALES OF A WEIRDER WEST features the stories "That Damned Coyote Hill," "The Long Black Train," "The Spider Tribe," "Bad Sanctuary," and "The Unholy" as well as an introduction by Western fiction legend James Reasoner.
Heath Lowrance is the author of City of Heretics, The Bastard Hand, and the story collection Dig Ten Graves, as well as the Gideon Miles adventure "Miles to Little Ridge" and the Fight Card novella "Bluff City Brawler" (as Jack Tunney). He's lived in various places this side of the Mississippi River and currently calls Lansing, Michigan, his home (although the desolate wilds of Wyoming sound more and more appealing as he gets older). He's currently at work on more Hawthorne stories, another Gideon Miles tale, and a third full-length novel.
