Time of the Wolves
Western StoriesUnknown - 2003
"Outstanding... Each story is as carefully crafted as a work of art with all the elements: plot, character, fine writing and a sense of place." - Roundup Magazine.
Among the highlights of this award-winning collection is "Sweet Cactus Wine," in which a widow fends off the attention of an unwanted suitor with a little assistance from a giant saguaro cactus. In "The Cyaniders" - written especially for this collection - husband and wife geologists team up to discover a killer in a remote mining town. "Forbidden Things" recounts the revelations of a woman who confronts her past in the ruins of a long-abandoned mountain cabin.
