Ron Scheer's Glossary

I spent the day formatting my friend Ron Scheer's final HOW THE WEST WAS WRITTEN. This one is a glossary of Old West terms and expressions which is a fitting cap to this indispensable series, though bittersweet because Ron passed away last month and I long to hear his thoughts on the project.

The High and the Mighty

Blustery kite weather this afternoon and my charmers along with Ava’s grandfather had a lot of fun flying this butterfly and ladybug. The hand to my mouth is when the kites nearly collided in midair. Luckily my daughter is a skilled navigator and no harm was done. Though, on my own, I managed to slam the butterfly into the top of a tree—and amazingly pulled it down without damaging it. Thanks to Aunt Meta and Uncle Bob for sending the aerial fun.

All Those Hungry Mouths

I've been a fan of Keith's poetry for some time and it's a real kick to finally publish a collection of them through BEAT to a PULP books. From the description:

Much like the short stories of Keith Rawson, the poems in All Those Hungry Mouths is filled with the desperate and the lonely; with criminals and victims; with the saved and the ruined. But despite the darkness of each piece, there is a spark of familiarity where we see ourselves.
