I picked up Bill Crider’s western OUTRAGE AT BLANCO to read in Hawaii later this month. The first line is certainly a grabber:
Jink Howard sat in the shade of a tree and ate tomatoes out of a can while Ben Atticks raped the woman in the wagon bed.
I’m also bringing with me another western, Elmer Kelton’s THE DAY THE COWBOYS QUIT and Dan J. Marlowe’s VENGEANCE MAN. I’m thinking of bringing the paperback edition of JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. MORRELL that I bought in Toronto…but it must weight five pounds.
