Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

  "Here is nonstop action with a Mark Twain twist." True West

"...solid genre prose style and ambitious theme, the story bears comparison to such notable western writers as Max Brand, T. T. Flynn, and Alan LeMay."—Booklist

"Hubbard is always a quick, fun read. Fans of pulp writing will eat these up." Library Journal

"...exciting Western stories are collected here  in a colorful pulp format."Library Journal

"Hubbard, a prolific writer of pulp fiction, excelled at westerns.  Slick and speedy, the story touches on a favorite Hubbard theme—the blurring of the line between good and evil, right and wrong—and delivers plenty of two-fisted action." —Booklist

"Highly recommended for anyone game for a campy Western taking a dark plot bent…"LJ Starred Review:

"A thrilling novel of greed, violence, survival and perseverance, Devil's Manhunt perfectly embodies the unbridled excitement of pulp fiction." Midwest Book Review

"Hubbard throws some nice plot twists into this one, and I didn’t figure out exactly what was going on until the very end of the story. This is another entertaining story with some fine action scenes." —Rough Edges Blog
