Among the four new releases we have planned for July 2012 is RIDERS OF THE BAR 10, the first book in a ranch-based series featuring Gene Lon Adams and his crew, who include the cantankerous old Tomahawk and the gun-swift Johnny Puma. Author ‘Boyd Cassidy’ is a pseudonym for the prolific British western writer Michael D. George, who also writes the wildly popular IRON EYES westerns under the name ‘Rory Black’ (and which we will also be issuing over the coming months in exclusive ebook editions).
Writes Michael: “In my time I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve been a barber, a freelance commercial artist, a portrait painter, a grave stone designer (a dying trade), an animator and an author. I did spend a few years in the Merchant Navy and was lucky to have travelled around the world four times before I was 23. I spent a lot of time in America during those days and cruised for two summers between California and Alaska. Now it is forty years later and these days I spend most of my time writing novels under my own name and no less than seven pseudonyms. I’ve been lucky to number a few of my old cowboy heroes as friends, and my walls are covered in the photographs of several of my cowboy hero pals. I’ve written a lot of books and I hope you enjoy this one, because there are plenty more to follow! As one of those friends, the late, legendary Monte Hale used to tell me, ‘Shoot low—they might be crawling!’”
