Why we're here:

It's been said that the publishing industry doesn't do Westerns because the market won't support them. That may be true but, it occurs to me, it's awfully hard to sell many Westerns if nobody will publish them. Sounds like a Catch-22 to me.

I don't like Catch-22 situations. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. My momma used to say, "Do something. Lead, follow, or get out of the way!" So, I did something. Frontier Tales publishes short stories that deal with the raw edge, where civilization crashes into the frontier. That clash is where the action is, and that's what so many of us love to read about.

Glad you stopped by. Hope you enjoy your time here. Drop us a line or send in a story – and be sure to tell your Western-lovin' friends about us!
