Justice For None


Bleakville Fire Cover

 What’s it About?

Blame for hanging a white man without trial fell on Edith Fowler, the colored Mayor of  Bleakville. If she doesn’t turn herself over to Vasil Huges and his henchmen the town will burn. Her dream has always been justice for all, but she fears there will be justice for none.

**Western fantasy making use of gunplay, old slang, violence, arson, a brief mention of prostitution, sprinkled with racism. One horror scene that would make Stephen King proud.**

I am happy to announce my short story “Justice For None” has been published in Frontier Tales Magazine. Publisher/Editor Duke Pennell provides a home for short western fiction that deals with the raw edge, where civilization crashes into the frontier. My original story fits in perfectly so Im making it available to read on Dukes site, with all the other great western stories. The support for my work has been wonderful. While moving the story over to Frontier Tales, I decided to leave the support comments here, on the day my supporters read and commented on the piece. If you supported me in the past and know the story, I give you many thanks. I you haven’t had the opportunity to read “Justice For None,” hop on over to its new home, Frontier Tales Magazine and take a look.

    You paint a very realistic scene – certainly bleak, but with charaters who are most believable. I agree, there are definitely touches of which Mr. King might approve!

      Thank you. I liked the character Edith Fowler. She had to get away…for another chapter one day.

    Dark and delicious, and I like that you can feel the emotion from the characters, like fear. Also really like the choice of names for people & places, like Bleakville! Very nicely done, my friend 😄
