A few of my war and western books

  1. "Sudden?" There's a series I don't know anything about. I'll have to look those up.

  3. That's a nice assortment of books.

    I've read a couple of the Sudden books and enjoyed them.

  4. Charles, you'll love Sudden if you haven't read the series before. English writer Oliver Strange never travelled to the US and yet his description of the wild west landscape is pretty spot-on, the characters quite real, and the lingo, well, that's one of the things you'll like about Sudden books. I hope you get to read about the adventures of the two-gun Texas outlaw. I wrote about this absorbing series previously, at www.chesscomicsandcrosswords.blogspot.com/2010/12/sudden-outlawed-and-out-of-print-last.html.

  6. Thanks, Mr. Reasoner. I started reading Sudden in my early teens and haven't stopped since. I've often pictured Clint Eastwood as Sudden. Wonder why they never made a film based on Sudden.

  7. Mel, thank you! It's just something I put together over the weekend. I'm also sorry I deleted your comment by mistake.

  8. 'Sudden' is my favorite too, epitomizes the lone ranger image of the west.
    Seems like there is no 'J.T Edson'?

  9. WordsBeyondBorders: I read very few J.T. Edson whose books never appealed to me.
