Phil Dunlap, Western Author

Monday, November 25, 2013


December is the launch date for a new anthology of Western stories edited and gathered by Robert J. Randisi, one of our premier Western authors. Not only does Randisi have a short story in this collection, but he is also joined by myself, Johnny D. Boggs, John Nesbitt, Matthew Mayo, Nik Morton, Charles Whipple, Lori Van Pelt, Christine Matthews, Scott Parker, and several others. The collection is called Livin' on Jacks and Queens. It will be published as an ebook by Piccadilly Publishing, one of the UK's best loved Western publishers. And it's got a great cover, too, don't you think.

When Robert asked if I'd participate, I said I knew nothing about gambling. He said gambling spans a broad spectrum, even gambling with your life. After giving that some thought, I agreed to give it a whirl. And, as it turns out, he was right and I loved doing this story: A Cold Deck.

To be included in this anthology with the caliber of authors Mr. Randisi has gathered is a great feeling. Being surrounded by some of the best keeps this old boy thinking the Western is anything but a genre of the past, lost and forgotten. That'll never happen.

I think you'll like what you see in this nicely put together volume. I don't know yet whether it will be available on Amazon, but you can always go to the Piccadilly Publishing website (Google them) and order straight from the publisher. Let me know what you think.

I may even take up gambling, myself.
