Westerns Ain't Dead, Dagnabbit

      We at Sundown keep hearing "the western is dead." Really? Tell Hollywood. Big-budget western movies seem to be popping out from behind every tumbleweed lately: The Revenant, The Magnificent Seven, The Hateful Eight, Bone Tomahawk, Outlaws and Angels, The Duel, Brimstone, Forsaken... The list stretches from here to the south forty. Television, too, has been involved in a torrid affair with westerns for several years: The American West, Longmire, Hell on Wheels, Texas Rising...and more are in development.
     Those of us who love reading and writing western fiction know westerns have never gone away---nor are they likely to ride off into the sunset anytime soon. At Sundown Press, we're doing our part to keep the western genre very much alive.
     This month we've corralled a slew of dang fine new releases, an author spotlight, and the best of the blog. Oh---and a gift. Did we mention the giveaway?
     Read on, pard!

Author Spotlight: Keith Souter

Keith Souter, a part-time doctor, medical journalist, and novelist, uses the pseudonym Clay More when he writes westerns.
Keith's The Doctor's Bag is indispensable for authors of any genre. Sundown has a limited number of autographed copies available. Since Keith lives in the UK, those are difficult to come by. Email Cheryl Pierson for details.
This month's gift is an e-copy collection of six powder-burning westerns: five novels and one novella.
And the winner is...
James Carroll Martin!
