*tells self not to go on rant, tells self not to go on...* Can someone please, PLEASE, point me to a Western that is NOT: 1) a Zane Grey, Max Brand, or Louis L'amour repeat. Those authors were all great, but my goodness, c'mon fellow authors, write YOUR story, not theirs. 2) 1st person. Sometimes 1st person is good, but if I open up a book about a gunfighter or a marshal or whatever and I see 1st person, I know straightaway the MC lives and that, frankly, takes out one helluva lot of tension. Please, someone point me to a gritty, dark, realistic Western that has not been riddled with and sucked of life by political correctness. I don't care if the author is indie or famous or both, don't care if the book was published yesterday or last century, but I want something more along the lines of Unforgiven than Lonesome Dove. PLEASE. Cause I've been looking and I'm not finding it.
To all of our Western readers! We just received a bunch of Louis L'Amour and Zane Grey novels! Come in and check them out!

So an excerpt from my favorite book appeared in Americas Horse so I thought Id share it, I love the Zane Grey books and most of which you can download free on a kindle or through I-books. " As spring advanced, with a lessening of the tornadoes, a new and fascinating game came into Panhandle's life. It was to sit at the one little window and watch the cowboys ride by. How he came to worship them! They were on their way to the spring roundups. His father had told him all about them. Panhandle would strain his eyes to get a first glimpse of them, to count the shaggy prancing horses, the lithe supple rider with their great sombreros, their bright scarfs, guns, and chaps, and boots and spurs. Their lassos! How they fascinated Panhandle! Ropes to whirl and throw at a running steer! That was a game he resolved to play when he grew up. And his mother, discovering his interest, made him a little reata and taught him how to throw it, how to make loops and knots. She told him how her people had owned horses, thrown ...
With tears and a heavy heart I leave tomorrow to my mom's, my step-father a man I admire and loved deeply has passed away. A retired veteran of thirty years and a nurse for the state of Little Rock prisons for 20 years. His hobbies was reading Zane Grey novels and watching John Wayne movies over and over again. He was a very unique person who only wanted the simple things in life. You will be missed dearly. Love you ;-(
Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage is such a romance.
So, I'm going to have a ton of reading to do this semester. Reading like seven world epics, an entire class over Canterbury Tales, and then five books on the Old West including a book by Zane Grey and one by James Fenimoore Cooper.

Hemmingway's mate was Zane Grey who wrote God awful Western adventure novels.
so, in 2001, Daddy died. In 2004, Mema, and one year later, 2005, Mama. A few years after that, almost 2 years ago, Phil. And we consolidated things from Mema's house, and then from Mama and Daddy's house, and then the house in town. Shirts and coats and shoes. Papers and books, Receipts and photographs. Dishes, tools. Pecans. Sheets. Mama's Zane Grey books. Daddy's suede jacket. Mema's green frog doorstop. Phil's toolbox... And I sorted and sorted and threw away and packed and packed... and moved stuff around. A few years later, I went through and sorted and repacked and threw away. (Just so you know, it takes years to get here, years and layers and years and layers... sometimes you can do it, and sometimes you cant...) I got my Daddys flannel shirts, and I had my friend cut them into squares and she and her daughters made me a little throw, one for me and one for my daughter. I found a bag of pecans that Daddy picked up for me. I told him not to, that we wouldnt crack them open, that we wouldnt eat t ...
Soon we entered the town of Zanesville – home of Zane Grey (was he named for Zanesville or visa-versa…both are pretty zany!). Our route to Sam’s Club, where we planned to spend the night took us right through the old part of town.

Heated, But Dull By DDick Recall being really impressed with the automated warehouse(s) at Al-beny... back in the mid-70's... Had an I-I staff Corpsman at the Reserve Center (solo Marine... in the day when centers were usually Navy & MC)... Doc didn't have a lot to do... shot records, etc. for around a hundred or so draft-dodgers, but he kept sick bay neat/clean, and the paperwork up to snuff... one paperback Zane Grey novel was usually enough to keep him occupied for most of the week. He slipped by the Sgt Major (nothing like a Capt with his own Sgt Major... and mine tended to control access to the corner office) one day with a problem... he was out of ETOH with which to swab arms prior to injections... so I told him to fill out a requisition (1348-1, 6-part), and I would sign it. He did, and I did... a few days later, UPS dropped off a small cardboard box... for sick bay. Doc took the box, and went to his domain to open it... and soon was down at my end of the hall with two white plastic pint bottles... ...

The Thinking Man Born in 1933 on a small dairy farm in Wisconsin, the youngest of seven children, the Thinking Man (boy?) lived on the family farm through the great depression. His family lived a subsistence life style, growing and canning, raising, slaughtering and butchering, to provide almost all their needs. There was no electricity or plumbing in their simple log house that was built just after the Civil War. His world was this small valley, surrounded for miles and miles by families that lived similar lifestyles. He never realized how financially poor his family was as there was plenty of food and a warm house to weather the severe Wisconsin winters. His grade school (1 through 8) was a mile up the road and he walked there and back, regardless of the weather. One teacher taught all eight grades at the same time and in the same room and there was one text book for each grade. The only reference material was a large world globe. In effect he had every grade eight times by the time he graduated. He alw ...

I credit my Papa Poindexter with my lifelong love of reading. When I was about 10 years old, he would let me go to the library & get books for him. He loved to read Zane Grey westerns & Perry Mason mysteries. I always felt like Papa would have been a teacher if he hadn't had to be the "son" in A.T. Poindexter & Son Grocery.Maybe it's a good thing he was in the grocery business, though, because lots of people told us their families would have starved if he hadn't extended them credit during the Depression.

Recipe for greatness- To bear up under loss, to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief, to be victor over anger, to smile when tears are close, to resist evil men and base instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to go on when it would seem good to die, to seek ever after the glory and the dream, to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be, that is what any man can do, and so be great. ~ Zane Grey

Love of Reading Revisited !!! In response to Carolyn's wonderful list of the top ten book's she has read to this point, and her invitation to do likewise... :-) Have had quite a bit more time, being quite a bit older :-)...I began to read at 4yrs old (I was a very solitary child) and devoured Zane Grey pulp magazine Western short stories, and scify pulp magazines...yup, they really existed !!! Through high school, my goal was to read every biography/autobiography the school libraries held. Will and Ariel Durant's "History of the United States", and "History of the World" were also awesome !!! High school also began my ongoing appreciation of Edgar Allen Poe. Reading all of Louis L'Amour sent me on actual trips to Arizona, to find those interesting places ! In the meanwhile, Joseph Campbell, and all of his books sent me on a journey of studying comparative religion, which remains ongoing... I loved the "Lord of the Rings", and "Dunes" trilogies, and am now on the fourth "Game of Thrones", "A Feast of Crow ...

Went to the local "Flea Market" aka 4 Generation Mini Mall. They have comics there. Not many, and not much of a choice, but I found 3 Lassies! Not the little ones, either, the OLD BIG books I haven't read before. They also have a Gene Autry and Fury and well, lots more of the Gold and Silver age and tons of modern, that I'm not interested in. But, I did get three Lassie! Oh, they even have a Zane Grey!

Growing up in Glide, OR, our family made many trips to Steamboat. Now married, with grown children & grand children. We live in Medford, OR, enjoying the Rogue River. I cherish memories, filled with end less children's activities: riding bikes till dark, freeze tag, chasing butterflies, catching crawdads, frogs & tadpoles, family picnics (pouring lemonade. Mom made & put in gallon, brown glass milk jugs from Umpqua Dairy),swimming & camping at Whistler's Bend, Rock Creek & Baker Parks. Who could forget saving Williams bread bags for kid's free admission day, at the walk in 'Indian Theater', in Roseburg. My brother, Jerold Pieske, stated it well, "We had it all." In June of 1932, he stopped to camp in the Steamboat area as a layover on his trip to Campbell River, British Columbia. Zane Grey fished in the North Umpqua River, near Steamboat, Oregon. Grey had split his fishing time between ocean cruises to the South Seas in search of world record marlin and regular forays to fly fish for summer steelhead on . ...
Zane Grey was extraordinarily lucky. Though he worked as a dentist as a young man, he was passionately fond of the Western U.S. and Canada, and longed to live in and write about those areas. He was lucky, because his wife completely understood his desires, and urged him to follow his dream. He had t...
In Search of Home August 4, 1974 Washington Post Outlook Section I grew up physically in the Indian subcontinent but I was raised mentally in the America of the 1950s. I ate rice and lentils with my fingers but read Lone Ranger and Little Lulu comics, saw John Wayne and Gary Cooper Westerns. I worshipped Allah five times a day under the watchful eyes of my parents but listened to Elvis Presley and Ricky Nelson songs, wore blue jeans and a crew-cut. I read the Koran before dawn every morning. Zane Grey in the afternoon. This double life was not unusual in Karachi for a child of the well-to-do, which I was. My father came from a long line of landowners, and he was himself a banker who held a number of high government posts. My mother was from a distinguished Bengali literary family, and she spent many hours discussing books with my two older brothers, six sisters and me. We lived in a big old British colonial house with several full-time servants. Life in our neighborhood was a mixture of t ...

Zane Grey receives gift of literacy - Zanesville Times Recorder
I have owned a certain book for at least 50 years, its paperback and it is still in good condition. The author, Robert Ruark, wrote the last page each month of "Field and Stream" magazine back in the 50's. Like Rick Riley did for Sports Illustrated. It was one of those magazines I would read from cover to cover without looking ahead or missing an article, ad or column. The real excitement came as I got closer to the end and Ruark's article. I could see the stories he told as if I was right there standing behind him as an elephant charged, a night meal was cooked over an open wood fire or as the light would start it journey across the ground each day. I could live it for days when I was alone and that was often. Then I discovered he wrote books! Better than Zane Grey, Hemingway or Jack London, who all wrote about the outdoors. I haunted the library and that old book store out on Rte. 1 South, across from where Herb's. I scored my first Ruark book in that place. It took me a few weeks of picking 5 ...

My daughter sent me a note that a lady was selling a set of Zane Grey hardbacks after he passed away. I got the whole set for a nice price. It'll look good in my library between my set of leather-bound Louis L'Amour and my collection of hardback classics. They are in good shape.
Ten books that have stayed with me in some way... 1. Unknown (book read in high school, I remember all of the details, characters, events, but not the title or author. :( I have searched and searched to find it again!) 2. Across The Wide And Lonesome Prairie by Kristiana Gregory 3. The Giver (read so many times throughout middle school and high school. Excited that a movie for it is being made, should be out in 2015!) 4. Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn (really connected with the main character.) 5. Ten Things I Love About You by Julia Quinn (Favorite Book to read when I need a good laugh.) 6. Far Away Home by Susan Denning (hated the ending because I just wanted MORE!) 7. These Is My Words: The Diary Of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 by Nancy E. Turner (Very inspiring to me, as this is the type of story I hope to create someday!) 8. Little House On The Prairie (my first book that got me hooked on this time period, read to me by my favorite teacher.) 9. Frontier Trilogy by Zane Grey (My first by this awesome ...
Rules: In your status line, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don't take more than a few minutes and don't think too hard - they don't have to be the "right" or "great" works.

..."a lot of great writers ended up in the shadow of the Hollywood hills in the twilight of their careers, for the money mostly, I suppose," he said, "besides Fitzgerald, there was Hemingway, Thorton Wilder, Zane Grey, John Stienbeck, Irving Stone, Irwin Shaw, H. G. wells, Elmer Rice and Irving Stone and a thousand other poor souls trying to hang on and pay their way. It was maybe the greatest convention of brilliance ever assembled in one zip code, but their work was mostly watered down or filtered out through house liquor, and main street demands of the cinema. The studio egomaniacs with dollar signs bouncing around in their head. The writers choked down their pride and gave the movie moguls what they wanted. A few masterpieces survived the cutting room floor. Harper Lee's one endeavor, To Kill a Mockingbird. Margret Mitchell's classic novel Gone With the Wind. Margret Mitchell was run over by a drunk driver on her way to movie show walking across Peachtree street in Atlanta soon after the Movie, Gone w ...

Many thanks to songwriter Zane Grey for stopping by Uncle Darrow's! Who remembers "Back in Love Again," the hit he penned for L.T.D.?
Watching a western on Netflix. I had forgotten all the stuff I was asked to believe as I watched these growing up..: For example, if you hit a guy at the base of the neck with the butt off your pistol. he will be out cold for the duration of your rescue/escape. NFL concussion guidelines did not apply. If you shoot in the air a few times, all available cattle will stampede in the exact direction necessary to further your goals. That would seem to argue for stampeding cattle all over the county during hunting season. The hero and his allies shoot very well, the bad guys can't hit the side of a barn..Unless the bad guy suddenly converts, at which point he shoots straighter. None of the animals poop. None of the people either, as far as I can tell. Beef jerky can sustain grown men through days on the trail. I grew up reading Louis Lamour and Zane Grey westerns. I credit them for teaching me to love to read, but this is a little hard to watch :)
The swag suit aka grey sweatpants w/ grey sweatshirt will be in full force this week
I seemed to have acquired a voracious appetite for reading @ a very young age, often @ the expense of my schoolwork. When we moved to Niagara Ave. in '64 I discovered a collection of classics in the attic. Nathanial Hawthorne, the complete Zane Grey collection, and most notably Marjorie Rawlings' "The Yearling". I would pick a book up & not sleep until had finished reading it. I later became a fan of Gregory Peck (The Yearling, Moby *** To Kill a Mocking Bird). Been a rough few days. Lay down this evening & discovered "The Yearling" was on TMC. Pulling my comforter up to my chin & loving you all...

MAMA'S GLOVES- A CHRISTMAS STORY A couple of years ago on Christmas Eve, Mac, Kevin and I decided to take my mom out to look at Christmas lights so she wouldn't be alone. We drove her down Adger Street in Pelzer to see the famous 'Light People', then through Williamston Park, and finally to town hall to see the parade of Christmas trees. As we drove, she became very animated and talked of Christmas' she had as a child. For some reason, one story in particular touched me deeply. It must have been around 1944. Mama was only 15 or 16 years old. Times were hard for everyone in these southern mill towns. My Papa King was a drifter and moved his family from one town to the next. This particular Christmas, he found work out of town for himself and my teenaged mama. It was Christmas Eve and they had to catch a bus home. Snow was on the ground and mom didn't have good, warm shoes. My Papa King had to wrap newspapers around her dainty, dancer's feet to keep them warm. When they arrived in the town they lived in, he ...

Page | 1 Joseph Garcia Professor Susan Arvay ENGL 112-14 November 12, 2013 Study of Revenge- Paper the United States of America the act of revenge is most often not sought out because most forms of it are against the law will land you in jail. Sometimes though, when justice by the courts is not rendered correctly or someone is proven innocent due to a technicality in the case, is revenge still the improper course of action if someone is truly guilty of a crime? Many religions and nations differ on this subject, such as “an eye for an eye” stated in the Bible. Even in John Grisham’s book, “A Time to Kill” revenge was pursued for a man’s daughter’s rapists, these convicted rapists were shot in cold blood right in the courthouse by the man whose daughter was raped. Justice was eventually carried out for the father of the little girl after he was tried for murder and was released due to not being in the right state of mind during the killing and was dealing with the emotions of seeing the men wh ...

I think it is time for me to say something about Al, who was a part of my life from the time I was a little girl in Friday Harbor, until the present day. Al lived with our family, and helped build our home in Friday Harbor. Al would go into the service, and when he returned, he married my sister, Lucretia, and they would eventually leave the island and move to Bellingham, where they both resided until their passing. Due to circumstances at the time, I moved with them, and lived with them until I married. My sister was a major figure in my life, which meant Al was the same, and they alway made me feel like I was a part of their family. We did just about everything together. We played practical jokes on both Al & Pete. The four of us played pinnochle on a regular basis, and Sis & I cheated a little. Sis drove me to the hospital with my first child, Tamorah LuCretia (her namesake), only before she did she had to fix her hair and makeup. Then, she took me to the wrong hospital. Two of our children were bo ...

Subject: Last 24 hours on Gutenberg. The only interesting (to me) book that Gutenberg released today was something called "Legal Chemistry" which could serve as a reference for mystery writers, criminal justice students, or the homicidal (but I would caution those so inclined - these poisons are routinely scanned for). For those looking for adventures/westerns or Sci-fi the site has many thousands of the former and a few thousand of the later. Adventure/western writers include: James Fenmore Cooper, Zane Grey, J.Rider Haggard, Max Brand, etc. For those seeking Sci-Fi there are: Vernes, Wells, Burroughs, a host of short-stories from the 30's through the 60's,and many lesser known authors.
Alex Phillips gave me the number 3, the number she always chooses for everything, so if you ever play the "Pick a Number Game" with her beware! Anyway. 1.) My middle name is Zane, named after the famous Western writer Zane Grey. Coincidence? I don't think so! 2.) I cannot wait to marry the love of my life, Ms. Alex, and spend the rest of my life serving God, raising a family, and making memories together. I will always love you! 3.) I tend to be a real artsy fartsy type guy. I love to write (short stories, poetry, novels, even research papers! I'm currently working on a novel, East of Nowhere. Maybe something will become of this one! And have a reality tv show floating somewhere out in Hollywood about Frog Giggin Preachers!

Especially out west on motorcycles. The Rockies! 6. I love old movies, jazz and western novels like Zane Grey. 7. Can't wait to live in our house that Vincent built.with a little bit of help from me! Almost there! 8. Greatest regret... Not letting people get closer and not being a better friend .lots of missed opportunities. But it's never to late!

Hedy Lamarr (Samson and Delilah, Copper Canyon, Zane Grey Theater), with her co-inventor George Antheil, designed a torpedo guidance system that was two decades before its time. Their concept lies behind the principal anti-jamming device used today in the U.S. government's Milstar defense communication satellite system. Ms. Lamarr also demonstrated her loyalty to the U.S. by raising seven million dollars in a single evening selling war bonds.

I am gonna share this story just because I love it. Posted by a family member yesterday, Felice Hibbard, you will appreciate it I think: October 25th. 1912 was my Dad 'Thomas Andrew Logsdon' birthday. Sister reminded me today he passed away 4 months short of his 61st birthday. I posted how he would read to us when we were young and some stories were old West Classics by Zane Grey. The late summer of 1969 Dad came to Laredo, Texas to visit. I took him out to the Ranch and for the next two days we moved cattle from Los Carolitis pastures 1500 acres on very back of ranch to the Rio Grande River side. Put a pair of old cowboy boots and hat on Dad put him on Big Red the most gentle horse on the ranch. Told Poncho Garcia best cowboy on the spread to keep Dad by his side both days.

This week I read two books. The first one was just a little booklet about Robert E. Lee. I did not realize that my mother and so many other girls were named after him (all the girls with "lee" in their names). My mom was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Her name is Paralee. Anyway, Robert E. Lee is also known as General Lee, who was general of The South during the civil war. He came from a very well known family; and he had also married George Washington's granddaughter. He inherited slaves, but freed them. Lincoln had asked him to be his general, but Lee could not find it in his mind to go against his fellow countrymen of Virginia and The South. For Lee, it was not about slavery, it was more about loyalty to his family and friends. He did not wish succession. After the war, Lee encouraged his soldiers to lay down arms and attitudes to rejoin The Union as Americans. He was a great man. The other book I read was more of a fictional character, but very true to life in those days. Written by Zane Grey, "The L .. ...

“People live for the dream in their hearts. And I have yet to know anyone who has not some secret dream, some hope, however dim, some storied wall to look at in the dusk, some painted window leading to the soul.” Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 – October 23, 1939)

FEEL FREE TO SHARE: From Don Bendell Fan Page: What America REALLY Needs By Don Bendell Tommy was sick to his stomach. Bradley, Jones, and Joe were approaching him near the swings, and Mr. Clayton was the playground monitor. Tommy knew the three bullies would take his lunch money again, and Mr. Clayton, the nerdy science teacher, would not even see them let alone stop them. Tommy was nauseated, knees trembling, he could feel his heart pounding in his neck, and hear it beating loudly in his ears. His mother wanted to go the school board meeting and joined a national anti-bullying campaign, hoping she could find a solution to his problem. His father, however, told him to simply stand up to the three bullies, and they would back down. Then he went back to his beer and reality show. Tommy had made up his mind that he would listen to his dad. The three surrounded him in a half circle, and Tommy stuck out his chin defiantly, saying, “You aren’t taking my lunch money again, Bradley.” Jone’s punch from t ...

I want to share this with you because sown part of your life you've been put on the "hot seat." That may have caught you off guard if you a procrastinator. "Oh I get it tomorrow. I got time.

When you was in school, didn'y prepare for that test. Should studied but naw I was hanging out. And it's an essay test. You can write a "Zane Grey" novel and still the instructor gonna flagged you. Or let's say you had to prepare for court and you had the case and you didn't prepare. And preparation means you went the extra mile.

Again "One Summer". From a section about Zane Grey. " Of Grey, the critic Burton Rascoe wrote: 'It is difficult to imagine any writer having less merit in either style or substance than Grey and still maintaining an audience at all.' "In private, he was spectacularly libidinous. An ardent outdoorsman, he often went on long trips into the wilderness with attractive, high spirited young women...and slept with them all. Sometimes he took as many as four at a time along with him... "At his peak he earned $500,000 a year. In 1927 he made just under $325,000. For purposes of comparison, F. Scott Fitzgerald, in his best year, earned $37,599." So being a scoundrel of the first degree and an astonishingly bad writer presented little in the way of obstacles to Grey in achieving what most folks call success.
Welcome to Trivia Tuesday! We hope you enjoy this new weekly feature. Have a great day! :) Famous Dentist’s Paul Revere This famous Revolutionary War hero made a midnight ride just before the battles of Concord and Lexington to warn people that, “The British are coming! The British are coming!” If he were advertising his day job, he might just as easily called out, “The dentist is coming! The dentist is coming!” Revere was a skilled silversmith who also advertised his services as a dentist and was known for making false teeth for his patients. John Henry "Doc" Holliday Doc Holliday is better known as a gambler and gunfighter but was also a dentist. Born in 1851, Doc Holliday was an Old West gunslinger that history will remember for the ages. His involvement in the O.K. Corral Gunfight in 1881 is probably his most defining moment. He had obtained his D.D.S. from Philadelphia in 1872. Thomas Welch While it may seem ironic that the creator of a company specializing in sugar-laden fruit juices was . ...
just a little bit of interest to read. Taupō-nui-a-Tia, or Lake Taupō as it is more widely known, is famed throughout both New Zealand and the rest of the world for the richness of its trout fishery and the size of its fish. One of the most remarkable aspects of that fame is the speed at which the sport fishery was established. Brown trout were first liberated in the lake in 1886 by the Major Scannell, the local Native Land Court judge. He was unsuccessful, but by the turn of the century there was a modest brown trout fishery in the lake and the rivers which flowed into it. what really made Taupō's reputation was the introduction of rainbow trout around the turn of the century, with the first big release being made in 1903. They were a much better sport fish, according to the fishermen. Within ten years, people were coming from overseas to fish at Taupō, with the consequent growth in a tourism service industry. The government was also extremely keen to have a say in this new industry, and in late 1906 ...
My next book is a "Classic" Western - "The Virginian: A Horseman of the Plain" by Owen Wister. It was written in 1902 and is said to be the "first true" Western book; and paved the way for Zane Grey, Louis L'Amour, and others. At least four movies and a TV series (1962-1971) were based on this novel. I remember the series with James Drury and Doug McClure. Looking forward to the book. A great looking Easton Press leather covered book, super Illustrations, Gold page edging, silk ribbon, archival pages, etc.

4 of 5 stars to Collected Westerns of Zane Grey by Zane Grey
Western books. Zane Grey best quotes. Faith is a funny thing
I hear Zane Grey western books are the best western books.
Pretty much one of the best trail running video's I've seen. This is from the 2013 Zane Grey 50M this April.

Thinking about a trip to Catalina Island. I want to stay in the Zane Grey hotel. Zane Grey, Catalina's most famous resident, wrote over 100 westerns. I think I read every one.
Im looking for something to read.. ebook... classic authors ( they're books are usually in public domain and free to download as ebooks.) I've just read my way through Zane Grey, Jane Austen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Somerset Maugham, HG Wells, Sax Rohmer, Ian Fleming, and on the paying side of things, William GIbson and Iain Banks. Any suggestions?
You can tell a great deal about an author (and a reader!) by the novelists which most influenced them as children. Which is why I don't tend to discuss my influences in general, for fear of what I might give away. But here, bravely, are some of my favourite authors from my adolescence: Zane Grey, H. Rider Haggard, Ethel M. Dell, J.R.R. Tolkien, Anne McCaffrey, Susan Cooper, and the wonderful Ursula Le Guin. You may well question how I ended up writing historical romance and not epic fantasy, looking at that list. But life's a funny thing, and I suspect there's some epic fantasy in me yet. How about you? Who did you love reading as a child?
Poem Of The Week: June 12, 2013 Submitted by Calder Lowe Jun 12, 2013 - 09:53 AM Poem Of The Week: June 12, 2013 The Old Cowboy I’m not sure when you first sauntered into my heart. Perhaps while I memorized lyrics to the ballad of Pecos Bill playing on Grandma’s wind-up phonograph, straddled a log over a waterfall, reading Zane Grey, sniffled farewells in darkened living rooms and movie houses at flickering images of Hopalong, Tom Mix, Alan Ladd, Gene Autry, Sky King and Roy. In my mind, you were 6 feet tall, lean, lanky, circumspect in speech, and wherever you walked, the smell of roasted chicory Wafted from an enameled blue pot, stars shone with a clarity and brightness captured only in glossy magazines, eagles soared majestically, coyotes howled in the distance, horses looked somehow prouder, cattle more dignified, pastures more verdant, horizons more expansive, and clouds, well -- more welcoming to wool gatherers on sultry, summer afternoons. Two nights ago, when I dreamt you were dying, I held m ...
An Army Master Sgt is in deep doo-doo for having anti Obama bumper stickers on his vehicle, and for reading books by conservative authors. If your in the military you don't get political. No matter how you feel, Obama is still the Commander in Chief. This NCO must also be spouting off about his reading list. When I was in the Army my reading list was correspondence courses, College text books, technical manuals, and a whole lot of Zane Grey, that's if I got to the freebie paperback box before the 1st Sgt. Selfish S.O.B didn't share. Is Zane Grey political?
Fun Facts Chuckleworthy? 1. According to the main character, John Doe, from the TV Show by the same name(about the year 2000, I think) these are facts: (a) the nation’s only active diamond mine is in Arkansas; it is illegal to walk down Main Street alone after 1:00 p.m. on Sunday in Little Rock, Arkansas; (c) fish sleep with their eyes open. 2. Still reading Zane Grey, the famous American western author from a hundred years ago. Still think he’s definitely about love stories and western action. I liked “Riders of the Purple Sage”, about Mormons and rustlers and gunmen and a couple of love stories; I liked a little less “To the Last Man”, a love story about cattle men versus sheep men based on the infamous Pleasant Valley War in Arizona, a little known “terrible and bloody feud“. 3. I’m enjoying “The Thundering Herd”, more than either. It’s also a love story set against the background of the great Buffalo slaughter of the western plains. Wonderful description of American Buff ...
I have a complete set of Zane Grey books, the 1954 reprint, and a first edition biography. Any idea what it's worth?
