Westerns Ain't Dead, Dagnabbit

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?
