Forthcoming Westerns: October 2007

Another month is behind us, which means there is another full slate of new releases set to hit bookstore shelves. And there is no disappointment in this list of upcoming titles. We have a few classic writers—Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, Bret Harte and Les Savage—and a few new favorites—J. Lee Butts and Joseph A. West. There is something of the traditional western represented, and even a few that probably don’t fit perfectly into that mold.

Overall, October looks to be a terrific month for Western reading, and as the days—for our North American, or should I say Northern Hemisphere, readers anyway—begin to shorten we can look forward to a few extra evening hours to buddy up with a novel or two. Enjoy.

The Argonauts of North Liberty by Bret Harte
The Bell-Ringer Angel’s by Bret Harte

Description for Holding the Ace Card:

“Hired gun Lou Bellanger has just started his poker game when the law catches up with him. But the fastest draw in Arizona Territory manages to make a daring escape and is just starting to breathe easy when he hears the sheriff had been killed in cold blood. The last thing Lou wants to do is go back to that hostile town and clear his name. Besides, he had a job to do—a job that ends up leading straight into an all-out range war. With a posse ready to string him up for murder at his back and a gang of bloodthirsty hardcases ahead of him, Lou better have more than an ace up his sleeve if he hopes to stay alive.”
