Gunman's Chance by Luke Short

Gunman's Chance by Luke Short

Gunman’s Chance by Luke Short

A tale of big Texas, of cattle, ranges and saloons; of punchers, cowboys and Ute Indians; and where the possibilities of fulfillment are as endless as the desert, and just as unpredictable. Jim Garry is a hard, embittered cowboy, who believes there is no hope left for his soul. But the headstrong and impulsive Amy Lufton proves him wrong! His erstwhile friend Tate Riling, prodded by greed, invades Sun Dust with the perfect rip-off scheme involving extortion, bribery, coercion and deceit. The target is wealthy cattle owner John Lufton, whose beautiful daughter Carol is his for the taking–and using. Both men come to Sun Dust seeking fortune; both women have stayed waiting for love. In the end, will they find redemption?


Hang by Your Neck By Henry Kane

Hang by Your Neck By Henry Kane

Hang by Your Neck by Henry Kane

Peter Chambers is a private richard who has a real affinity for trouble. He hasn’t any notion at all who polished off the nasty blonde with the round hole between her eyes–or the little man swinging by the neck from a bedroom window. Peter has strong incentives for finding out the answers–partly because the only thing he can do is break the case wide open before the going gets too rough; but mainly because his fee is Miami Moonbeam, six feet of ravishing, red-haired woman.



Web of the World by Harry Harrison & Katherine MacLean

Web of the World by Harry Harrison & Katherine MacLean

Web of the Worlds by Harry Harrison and Katherine MacLean

This must be another world altogether, separate from his own in time and space. He wasn’t sure about the details―it had been a long time since he had read H. P. Lovecraft―but this theory seemed the most tenable.” Grant O’Reilly was not the adventurous type. A sheltered invalid as a child, who used books for accompaniment, he had barely begun to live his life before the great change occurred. Suddenly, about to be married, he is taken by a seizure to wake in a land like none he had known before. Plucked by accident by the fates, he is carried away to a medieval world of wintry weather and barbaric battles. Berl-Cats, fire salamanders and Al’kahar ghouls, existed in this world. He will have to toughen to this strange, brutal world–or die in it!


Cover for Harry Harrison & Katherine MacLean Story

Here’s a cover I’m working on for the forthcoming eBook, Web of the Worlds by Harry Harrison and Katherine MacLean.  The story was published in Fantasy Fiction, November 1953. The cover I used is took from a different issue of Fantasy Fiction (Aug ’53). Art by Hannes Bok, which is a favorite around here. This one is unusual in it’s flatness, but it still has his quality. Wonderful gradients.
