Tales from Dry Gulch

Just out!

Tales from Dry Gulch.

I have a story in this anthology of weird western stories from a shared world, edited by David Riley. It also has stories by Raymond Broadbeard, Henry Ram, Davide Mana, Patrick Dorn, Jill Hand, J.A.Campbell, Kit Volker, John Howard, Dan Fitzimmons, and Horst Benson.

My story is “What Happens When You Wet Your Whistle in Dry Gulch”.

(And! I got to do the cover art!)

“Welcome to Dry Gulch, Colorado. The year is 1881 or so, the gold mine has played out, but there’s talk some company from back east is supposedly putting in a zinc mine near town. Folks are friendly in Dry Gulch. Don’t forget to stop by the bakery for a loaf of sourdough bread from Miss Wendy’s secret recipe, then wet your whistle in the saloon next door. Just be sure to tip that piano player. You can get your prospecting supplies from the Dry Goods Store. And you can catch up on Mrs. Duncan’s cat in the pages of the Gazette. Keep an eye out for Henry, the town drunk. He likes to tell folks about the ghosts he sees, if you buy him a drink.Dry Gulch is easy to get to. Just saddle up and take a ride out to the weird, weird west.”
