Overview


Mart Kincaid, a tall, ruggedly good-looking young man in the Clint Eastwood mold, may be the fastest gun in the state, but it does him no good—because his gun and his life are not his own.  They belong to Gar Malone, the King of Concha Basin, a ruthless rancher driven by his thirst for power, wealth, and conquest.

Now Gar has set his sights on the Singing Canyon spread—the richest land in the basin—and he commands Kincaid to run its true owners off.  If not, he threatens to reveal a dark secret that could ruin Kincaid’s brother.

But there’s more to the Singing Canyon ranch than Kincaid bargained for.  There’s the Drake family—specifically the lovely young Sally Drake.  The last thing Kincaid wants to do is drive her away.  Meaning he’s got to get out from under Gar’s thumb, and put his trigger finger to work.  It’s time to settle up, once and for all, with the blackmailing Malone.  

Most of the Westerns published in the all-fiction magazines of the first half of the twentieth century were written by authors more familiar with the streets of New York than the cattle trails of Texas. Hubbard bucked the trend, and in the process changed the face of the Western adventure. He grew up in a time and a place where the Old West, though fading, still lived. His unique knowledge of the frontier, of its ways and its people, made him an authentic voice of this unique American experience.

Also includes the Western adventure Blood on His Spurs, in which two men have to find a way to end their feud . . . or pay a high price in blood and money.

“Heart-racing plot charges at the speed of thrumming horses’ hooves.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"L. Ron Hubbard could handle the Western with the flair of a Louis L’Amour or Zane Grey”—True West

"Hubbard was a first-rate pulp writer…He could go up against any of these giants—Hammett, Max Brand, J.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Louis L’Amour."—Locus Magazine

"Outstanding audio books...characterized by talented multi-cast performances, which are enhanced with impressive special effects and thematic music. Flawless technical recordings, each and every one of these very special audio books provides the listener with a true 'theatre of the mind' experience and is enthusiastically recommended. —Midwest Book

"Loaded with tough men, beautiful babes, and tons of action….Hubbard is always a quick, fun read. The audios feature full-casts and great sound effects. Listen to one and you’ll be hooked.” —Library Journal

    Are you ready to take a step back in time to the wild west? A time when things were ran differently and justice was met from what you practiced. Gunboss of Tumbleweed is a book containing two short stories that will help to transport you to a time when everything was high adventure. I really enjoyed these two stories where the characters were highly developed and you were always wondering what was going to happen next. * I received this book in return for my honest opinion of it
