Max Brand - Beszéljenek a fegyverek
Az elsősorban western történeteiről ismert író Frederick Schiller Faust néven született 1892-ben Seattle-ben. Californiában nőtt fel, ahol cowboyként dolgozott, majd később felvették a Berkeley Egyetemre, de lázadó természete miatt nem szerezhetett diplomát. Itt kezdett el írni. A legkülönbözőbb műfajokban írta regényeit vagy egy tucat álnév alatt. Többek között ő volt Dr. Kildare megalkotója is. A legmaradandóbbak és legsikeresebbek azonban a Max Brand néven írt vadnyugati történetei lettek. Regényeiből nyolcvan film készült, három filmsorozat, számtalan rádiójáték és egy Broadway-musical. Mint nyughatatlan természetű ember beutazta a világot, de a legjobban Európában, különösen az olaszországi Firenzében érezte magát. Kitűnően beszélte a nyelvet, így amikor az Amerikai Egyesült Államok belépett a II. világháborúba és csapatai partra szálltak Olaszországban, rendetlenkedő szíve ellenére haditudósító lett a gyalogság mellett. 1944-ben egy német támadás alatt megsebesült és az orvosok már nem tudtak rajta segíteni.

Felix Gilman - The Rise of Ransom City
In The Half-Made World, Felix Gilman took readers deep into a world on the cusp of forging an identity. The Line, a cult of Industry, and the Gun, a mission of Chaos, were engaged in a war for dominance. The Line was winning city by city, enslaving the populations it conquered.

Manfred Roosen - Leszámolás
A fiatal hölgy egyetlen pillantással végigmustrálta a három férfit. Szép szeme ragyogó örömmel pihent meg a fekete hajú fiatalember arcán. - No lám! szólt. - Itt van a megmentőm és rettenthetetlen lovagom is. Tudja, tulajdonképpen haragudnom kellene magára, amiért még arra sem adott alkalmat, hogy megköszönjem mindazt, amit értem tett. Ez eléggé udvariatlan volt magától, barátom. Egyébként pedig... A fiatal leány szeme most Howard ezredesre siklott. - Egyébként pedig - folytatta - szívből gratulálok az embereihez, ezredes úr! - Utánozhatatlanul kecses mozdulattal kezet nyújtott az ezredesnek... - Leonie Forsiht a nevem - mondta. Egyik iskolatársnőmet jöttem meglátogatni. Az édesapjának errefelé van birtoka. Útközben zsiványok kezére kerültem... Szörnyen érdekes volt. Csak a poggyászomat sajnálom. Igazán nem volt szép tőlük, hogy minden ruhámat elvitték. Most arra kérem az ezredes urat, szerezze vissza a holmimat, mert pillanatnyilag összes földi javamat a testemen viselem. Howard ezredes levegő után kapkodott. A banditák rettegett üldözőjének ezúttal elállt a szava. Csak hebegett, makogott valamit. Több ízben meghajtotta magát és mosolyt erőltetett marcona arcára.
Yasuhiro Nightow - Trigun Maximum 4. - Bottom of the Dark
This time with feeling! So, you thought since Vash and Wolfwood survived the battle with Hoppered the Gauntlet and Leonoff the Puppet Master, maybe they'd get some peace, have a little rest? You thought wrong. There are more Gung Ho Guns where those other oddballs came from, and you can bet those coming are just as strange as those who came before. Meet Midvalley the Hornfreak, a man who carries a saxophone and plays some really "killer" tunes. And then there's Zazie the Beast, a cute little fellow, but he's got something up his sleeve , or tucked into his eyelid (and it's probably got wings and multiple legs.) Sound interesting? It is. Trigun Maximum marches into more crazy battles, full of gunfire and humanity and frantic energy, a freaky mixture of pain, comedy, and mystery. Never a moment of rest for Vash the Stampede, a man whose body contains a planet-destroying gun, and whose credo is "Peace and Love!"
E. Thompson - A préri fantomja / Jim, a fekete lovas
A két világháború közti időszakot méltán tarthatjuk a magyar ponyva aranykorának, amikor is több tucat kiadó százával, ezrével jelentette meg azon műveket, melyeknek az egyszerű szórakoztatáson túl nem igen voltak magasabb rangú célkitűzései. A zömében nyugati mintára íródott kalandregények között azonban időről-időre felbukkant jó néhány gyöngyszem, akik nélkül valljuk be, a magyar nyelvű irodalom szegényebb volna. A műfaj vitathatatlanul legnagyobb zsenije természetesen Rejtő Jenő volt, azonban az ő kortársai között nem kevesen vannak olyanok, akik e műfaj keretein belül a legmagasabb szakértelemmel „termelték” a western, idegenlégiós, detektív vagy épp szerelmes történeteket. E mindig is népszerű műfaj, mára klasszikussá vált darabjaiból állítottuk össze sorozatunkat.

Charles Willeford - The difference
Set against the savagely sweeping panorama of a lawless Arizona Territory circa 1880, The Difference has many of the surface trappings of a standard Western: young man swindled out of his rightful inheritance by cattle baron has to fight the good fight against the odds and learn to be a man. However, from finding the first shocking realisation that the line between good and evil is being wildly overstepped, Willeford systematically dismantles the classic American cowboy myth. His genius is that his protagonist, the young outlaw Johnny Shaw - a self-absorbed, amoral hero whose need to seek vengeance overrides any latent sense of 'honor' - is drawn with compassion and vulnerability.
N. R. Walker - Red Dirt Heart 2.
Up until Travis arrived on his doorstep, Charlie had lived a very solitary life. He had surrounded himself with isolation; a couple million acres of red dirt, scorching sun and loneliness. Six months on, winter has settled over the desert, and Charlie has the life he never dreamed possible. But living and working together, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, for six months straight starts to take its toll. Charlie is a stubborn, stubborn man, who tends to have more conversations in his head than what comes out his mouth, whereas Travis has no problem saying what’s on his mind. And even as they both struggle to communicate, struggle to make sense of need versus want, Charlie can see that he’s pushing Travis away - yet seems helpless to stop it. When it all boils down to whether Travis should stay or go, maybe the decision won’t be theirs to make.

Paulette Jiles - News of the World
In the aftermath of the American Civil War, an aging itinerant news reader agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people in this morally complex, multi-layered novel of historical fiction from the author of Enemy Women that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain enjoys his rootless, solitary existence. In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows. Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forming a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land. Arriving in San Antonio, the reunion is neither happy nor welcome. The captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember—strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become—in the eyes of the law—a kidnapper himself.

Stephen King - Alegerea celor trei
In Alegerea celor trei, Stephen King a hotarat sa desfasoare povestea pe o plaja pustie. Astfel, la capatul noptii de zece ani, omul in negru s-a transformat intr-o mana de oase, iar Turnul – nexul Timpului, nexul Marimii – si-a reinnoit promisiunea prin alegerea prevestita.

M. K. Hobson - The Hidden Goddess
In a brilliant mix of magic, history, and romance, M. K. Hobson moves her feisty young Witch, Emily Edwards, from the Old West of 1876 to turn-of-the-nineteenth-century New York City, whose polished surfaces conceal as much danger as anything west of the Rockies. Like it or not, Emily has fallen in love with Dreadnought Stanton, a New York Warlock as irresistible as he is insufferable. Newly engaged, she now must brave Dreadnought’s family and the magical elite of the nation’s wealthiest city. Not everyone is pleased with the impending nuptials, especially Emily’s future mother-in-law, a sociopathic socialite. But there are greater challenges still: confining couture, sinister Russian scientists, and a deathless Aztec goddess who dreams of plunging the world into apocalypse. With all they must confront, do Emily and Dreadnought have any hope of a happily-ever-after?
Cormac McCarthy - The Crossing
The opening section of The Crossing, book two of the Border Trilogy, features perhaps the most perfectly realized storytelling of Cormac McCarthy's celebrated career. Like All the Pretty Horses, this volume opens with a teenager's decision to slip away from his family's ranch into Mexico. In this case, the boy is Billy Parham, and the catalyst for his trip is a wolf he and his father have trapped, but that Billy finds himself unwilling to shoot. His plan is to set the animal loose down south instead. This is a McCarthy novel, not Old Yeller, and so Billy's trek inevitably becomes more ominous than sweet. It boasts some chilling meditations on the simple ferocity McCarthy sees as necessary for all creatures who aim to continue living. But Billy is McCarthy's most loving--and therefore damageable--character, and his story has its own haunted melancholy. Billy eventually returns to his ranch. Then, finding himself and his world changed, he returns to Mexico with his younger brother, and the book begins meandering. Though full of hypnotically barren landscapes and McCarthy's trademark western-gothic imagery (like the soldier who sucks eyes from sockets), these latter stages become tedious at times, thanks partly to the female characters, who exist solely as ghosts to haunt the men. But that opening is glorious, and the whole book finally transcends its shortcomings to achieve a grim and poignant grandeur. --Glen Hirshberg
S. J. D. Peterson - Ty's Obsession
Ty Callahan knew Quinn Taylor was special the moment he first laid eyes on him. When the angry and heartbroken cowboy finally opens up, Ty sees the real man inside, and for the first time in years, Ty is ready to love again. There’s only one problem: Lorcan James. Although Lorcan has owned a piece of Quinn’s heart for some time, Ty is convinced he is the better man for Quinn and will stop at nothing to prove it. Then Blake Henderson, a strong, dominant cowboy, strolls confidently into Ty’s life, offering an outlet for Ty’s anger, a chance to heal, and an option for his torn affections. Can Ty look beyond his feelings of rage and betrayal and find true peace, or will his obsession destroy them all?
Larry McMurtry - Gyilkos hold - Púpos Bölény

John Williams - Butcher's Crossing (angol)
Will Andrews is no academic. He longs for wildness, freedom, hope and vigour. He leaves Harvard and sets out for the West to discover a new way of living. In a small town called Butcher’s Crossing he meets a hunter with a story of a lost herd of buffalo in a remote Colorado valley, just waiting to be taken by a team of men brave and crazy enough to find them. Will makes up his mind to be one of those men, but the journey, the killing, harsh conditions and sheer hard luck will test his mind and body to their limits.
Cormac McCarthy - Cities of the Plain
On a ranch in southeastern Texas, soon after World War II, a group of solitary, inarticulately lonely men gathers to work animals as the sun sets for good on the mythic American West. All of these men nurse losses both personal (siblings or wives) and collective (a shared lifestyle and philosophy). Among them is John Grady Cole, the adolescent hero of the first book in Cormac McCarthy's Border trilogy, All the Pretty Horses. John Grady remains the magnificent horseman he always was, and he still dreams too much. On the ranch, he meets Billy Parham, whose own tragic sojourn through Mexico in The Crossing, the second book of the set, continues to quietly suffocate him. The two form a friendship that will nurture both but save neither from the destiny that McCarthy's characters always sense lurching to meet them. Soaked in storm-heavy atmosphere but brightened by the ranch-hands' easy camaraderie and gentle humor, Cities of the Plain surprises with its sweetness. The awkward doomed-romance plot at the center of this tight, concise novel fails to convince, but, remarkably, does little to undercut the book's impact. What lingers here, and what matters, are the brooding, eerie portraits of the plains and the riders, glimpsed mostly alone but occasionally leaning together, who slip across them, over the horizon into memory. --Glen Hirshberg
M. K. Hobson - The Native Star

But before she can undo the damage, an enchanted artifact falls into her possession—and suddenly Emily must flee for her life, pursued by evil warlocks who want the object for themselves. Dreadnought Stanton, a warlock from New York City whose personality is as pompous and abrasive as his name, has been exiled to Lost Pine for mysterious reasons. Now he finds himself involuntarily allied with Emily in a race against time—and across the United States by horse, train, and biomechanical flying machine—in quest of the great Professor Mirabilis, who alone can unlock the secret of the coveted artifact. But along the way, Emily and Stanton will be forced to contend with the most powerful and unpredictable magic of all—the magic of the human heart.
James A. Michener - Centennial
