by Gerald E. Sheagren
Vinny Carlotto has seen everything as an NYPD detective, but nothing prepared him for a time travel trip back to 1881 Tombstone in search of a cold-blooded killer. And not just 1881, but the very same day as the infamous shootout. Will he survive or will he bite the dust in the old west?

Crossing the Red
by Dick Derham
"A San 'Tone boy will be a man when he crosses the Red River." That's what Shanghai Pierce claimed anyway. But is it true? Ride along with young Henry through stampedes, river crossings and other ordeals and discover the Life Lessons imparted to him on his first cattle drive.

Little Hearse on the Prairie
by Heidi M. Roth and Adrian Ludens
When Henry's father arrives home on Christmas Day, the lad expects to receive a gift. Instead, his father recounts the harrowing ordeal of Mary, one of Henry's closest friends. His father's tale illustrates the harsh realities of frontier life, and yields a heartbreaking shock for Henry.

The Man With the Schofields
by Jordan Tyler Quinn
If you ever shoot a Ranger, you'd better make sure he's all the way dead or he may just get upset and come for you. And, trust me, you wouldn't want that!

White Crow's Bargain
by K.S. Thomas
Mitchell was a Ranger and he'd caught his man and was bringing him back for justice. But the Comanche caught Mitchell first, and they wanted justice too. What could Mitchell offer that would keep them from killing him?

A Good Friend of Bill Winston
by Trey Smith
When a man is down and out, he turns to his friends. But some "friends" aren't always looking out for your best interests. It's a hard life when you're a hard man.
