The Frontier: the line between civilisation and the unknown where pioneers rely on a strong will and a dead eye not big city laws.
A land where the sweat you shed makes a place yours, whatever lines the government draws on a map; where everyone knows putting on a badge doesn't make a sheriff better than everyone else; where the divide between legend and reality isn't always where it seems.
From ageing settlers who miss the days when the town only had one street to decent folk who become gunslingers, from lawmen who find the solidity of the railroad is no protection from the devil to practical men who discover some monsters are more than heathen superstition, these nine tales will show you the West that was, that might have been, and might be again.
Each story in this anthology takes you along a different trail, but they share the grit and adventure that built the frontier.
