Tom Roberts' great imprint Black Dog Books has released an excellent new collection, Dead Man's Brand. It contains the western short stories of pulp master Norbert Davis (1909-1949), who is usually known for his detective stories. I was proud to add a blurb to this book -Davis was a heck of a writer. You should check it out. In fact, if you love Depression-era pulp fiction like I do, you'll find this publisher to be a treasure trove. I'm currently in the middle of Unmasked, which contains the earliest adventures of the Lone Ranger, Zorro, the Cisco Kid and Hopalong Cassidy. Great stuff.
