Today is Wild West Monday, so please don’t forget to sign the online petition here to support a worthy genre. And then, click over to Gary Dobbs aka Jack Martin’s site for all WWM related links and news. For my own part, I’m heading to a hidden bookstore that I shall remain mum about (greedy me) until I’ve cleared it of all the 40s and 50s Zane Grey western magazines therin. After, I'll drop by a few outlets that don't carry westerns and throw a tantrum until they concede my point. So, if you have the inclination, we could certainly use your help. And if you've never read a western, I.J. Parnham makes a very good case on his blog as to why you should.
Shameless plug department: Jack Martin will be returning to BTAP June 28th with "The Devil's Right Hand" which preceeds the release of his debut novel, THE TARNISHED STAR.
Also, Dominic Fox beat me to the punch by posting the lovely Raquel as Hannie Caulder and reviewing the film here. A favorite that I will probably purchase before long.
