Howdy Russell. This is a belated thankyou for your December 2007 review of my novel, THE VENGEANCE TRAIL. I hope you will read some of my other works, especially since, after 24 novels, I've begun to scratch the surface of the storyteller's art.

Once again, an excellent review of what is happening on the western scene. A bit frustrating, though, as Comanche Moon looks so good, and I doubt we will ever get it over here in the UK. I wonder whether it will be out on DVD?
