Free and Bargain Westerns

I first became a fan of westerns through the pulps of Clifton Adams, William MacLeod Rainey, and Max Brand. Soon I was devouring everything I could find by William Johnstone, Larry McMurtry and other masters of the genre. Don't know if there are any other devotees here, but can't resist passing on these freebies.

Free Westerns today from Amazon:

Mobley's Law by Gerald Lane Summers, first published by Telemachus Press, 2011

Free and reduced westerns seem to be few and far between. There may an interest in this one, free today from Amazon:

Mr. Pettigrew (The Nemesis Series) by L.J. Martin

Quote:
Nearly starved, missing half a leg, Beau Boone stumbles out of a cattle car into the hell on wheels Transcontinental Railroad town of Nemesis, and into gunsmoke and battle to rival that of the war he's just escaped. Mr. Pettigrew and Miss Alice, of the Angel Cloud Saloon, befriend him, and soon he's sitting shotgun in the middle of a smaller, but equally deadly, conflict. And it's a war no one can win.
L. J. Martin's passion for the western and the wild west spills over into every word he writes. From the diversity of the land and the glorious history of its earliest inhabitants to the brave and enterprising men and women who rushed to claim it, this talented novelist boldly mines America's last great frontier for stories that are truly unforgettable.

Thanks, Apache. Never heard of this one, but I snapped it up and moved it near the top of my TBR list. It sounds really wonderful.

Haven't read it yet but it looks like it's a series of stories.

Two of my all-time favorite Westerns are on offer at Amazon from HarperCollins for $3.79.

That master of the Mystery genre, Elmore Leonard, got his start writing for the pulp western market in the 1950’s. Hombre, published in 1961, and Valdez is Coming, published in 1970, were both adapted to film. Although Valdez is Coming received mostly mediocre movie reviews, Hombre with Paul Newman was a hit. Both are excellent novels.

Several other Elmore Leonard westerns are also offered for $3.79. I haven’t yet read them, at least that I can remember, but you can’t really go wrong with a Leonard novel.

These same books are $3.99 at B&N and Kobo. At BoB they are $4.35.

Hombre was a great movie.
One of my favorite Elmore Leonard books was Mr Majestyk. I liked the movie too.
