Paul Cool emailed me and said his new Salt Warriors book is now available from

"Thanks for the plug. The book has done pretty well, on the Top 100 best selling Southwest history books list most days since Dec 31, though of course it fluctuates wildly. (Overall, of course, between 600,000 and 46,000, behind all the self-help books.) The good news is so far this month it has been the top selling not-yet published book on that list, so that's a good harbinger (I hope).

"Bob Schrader from Flagstaff called to order your newest book Classic Gunfights, Volume III today. He started reading True West, after seeing an article in the Arizona Republic about you and TW, last Sept or Oct. He is a fan of yours and Marshall’s. Thinks people relate to you because you are down to earth."

I've really been working hard on the facial images for Mickey Free and gang. Here's a sampling, going back to last week:

Nice scarring effects, (above, middle right), but not quite there.

Yes, that's Manga Mick, (above, lower right).

And yes, the blowing hair (above, bottom right) is totally Manga influenced. Ha.

Nice designs, crappy features (above). I'll publish my weekend efforts tomorrow. Gee, I wonder what Ike (I like him) has to say about all this?
