  • This is an anthology with some of the top writers in the mystery field telling stories about the old west in the noir tradition. I was thrilled to be included in this book. It is out of print at the publisher’s, but some copies are still available at Amazon. Because of the other famous writers included, this may become a collector’s item. Here’s the official “product description” from the publisher:

    For generations raised on the Saturday afternoon thrills of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, the appearance of the so-called “psychological westerns” of the Forties, Fifties and Sixties came as a surprise. And, to some who didn’t care for them, a shock.

    With such films as “Blood on the Moon, Winchester `73,” and “The Naked Spur,” audiences saw characters very much like themselves emotionally. Critics argued the authenticity of some of the history in these films but there was no denying their power. Sam Peckinpah’s “The Wild Bunch” confirmed, once and for all, that the western had changed forever, psychologically and sometimes politically relevant to our own times.

    “On Dangerous Ground” features stories of every kind, all with a western setting, all with darkness at their core. And all with the kind of edge that demonstrates how timeless the form is when used well.

    My story “Going Where the Wind Blows” starts on page 97. Be warned, this is, like the others in the anthology, a very dark story.
