The few folks who have read my next story find it to be the darkest of the crime westerns in my Cash and Miles series. "The Outlaw Marshal" sees Mason Doig, newly released from Territorial Prison, claiming he endured beatings while in prison paid for by Cash Laramie. He suspects the outlaw marshal has followed him to Dodge City with revenge on his mind for the death of a friend. Top editor David Barber will have it published some time next week at the Flash Fiction Offensive and I hope you can take the time to check it out.
I had the pleasure the other day to hold several vintage weapons including this Colt that Cash very well could have used. It had been in a museum display case where it hadn't been moved in fifty plus years. What a thrill! Many thanks to my charmer for setting this up and the kind caretakers at the museum for the private tour.
