On 1st June, Piccadilly Publishing, the new e-book initiative founded by Western writers Mike Stotter and Ben Bridges, relaunches no less than three Western series on Amazon Kindle.
Following hard on the spur-hung heels of their first release, TRACKDOWN (the first Bodie the Stalker western by fan favourite Mike Linaker, writing as ‘Neil Hunter’), readers can now say howdy to three more gun-swift heroes this time out.
GUN FOR HIRE introduces another Neil Hunter creation, ex-army scout Jason Brand, who is hired by wealthy New Mexican cattleman Morgan Dorsey to find Dorsey’s kidnapped daughter. US Marshal Bren ‘Bronco’ Madigan, the tough-as-nails character created by prolific Australian Western writer Keith Hetherington (writing under the name Hank J. Kirby) debuts in MADIGAN’S TRAIL, where Madigan’s long-held dislike of a crooked politician forces him to stretch the law to its very limits in order to see justice done.
Rounding out June’s titles is THE RED HILLS, which features quite probably the ultimate anti-hero, known only as Crow. The controversial, black-clad Crow was the brainchild of the late Laurence James, here writing under the pseudonym ‘James W. Marvin.’ This introductory novel tells the story of how cavalry lieutenant Crow runs afoul of his overbearing commanding officer … and gets a savage revenge.
Further books in each series will follow as 2012 continues to unfold, each one as always sporting eye-catching, specially-commissioned covers inspired by the pulps of yesterday but giving them a modern twist.
“This is very much the opening salvo for us,” says Mike Stotter. “Since the release of TRACKDOWN we’ve been very busy behind the scenes, recruiting more writers and series. Over the next few months I think we will have some very pleasant surprises in store for series fans.”
