Robert J Randisi has once again given us an OUTSTANDING western anthology. BLACK HATS grabs your intrest from the very first story in which the BLACK HAT shows a tender heart in a story by Barbara Barton. Matt Braun tells about how Sam Bass tried to go straight and almost succedded. Rod Miller's story of Porter Rockwell is a well written account of the Grand Jury's inquiry of a murder commited twenty years ago. Dave Rudabugh finds out the hard way that for an outlaw, it's not easy to 'live on the square', even in Mexico in Marcus Pelgrimas's excellent story. Even more difficult is trying to straddle both sides of the fence as Henry Plummer learns in the well written story by BLACK HAT'S editor Bob Randisi. In Troy D. Smith's well crafted story, we read about Ned Christie, the Cherokee outlaw who was hounded by the law for a crime he did not commi and for which Christie paid the ultimate price. How the capture of Henry Starr comes about is very well done by Ed Gorman. BLACK HATS is a wonderful book about some of the wests well known and not so well known outlaws as told by some of the best writers around today.Was this review helpful?
