Book Giveaway

This is a little different. I have been searching out novels by the pulp writer Merle Constiner, and in my enthusiasm I picked up two copies of his ACE Double The Action at Redstone Creek. And I want to give it away. It is numbered G-638, and it includes A Time to Shoot it Out (originally titled Renegade Guns) by Edwin Booth. The publication date is 1967.

If you are interested in adding this classic ACE Double to your collection send an email to with “Book Giveaway” in the subject line along with your name and the address you would like it shipped in the body of the email by Monday November 30 at 11:59pm MST. I will then select an entry at random, notify the winner and ship the book in early December.

I wrote a review for The Action at Redstone Creek a week or so ago; click Here to read it.

Also, I would love to hear about any old westerns you remember enjoying—titles or authors. Feel free to email me, or post a comment.

Note. The above scans are not of the actual book you will receive.

I'm a fan of the old westerns by Donald Hamilton, Harry Whittington, and Marvin H. Albert (who also wrote some as Al Conroy).

And I'll add the names H.A. De Rosso, T.T. Flynn, Peter Dawson, and Luke Short. (Dawson and Short were actually brothers, Jon and Fred Glidden, respectively.)

Clifton Adams wrote a lot of fine westerns, in particular some dark ones that were published just before and after his death in the eary 70's.

I second the recommendation of Clifton Adams.

Thanks everyone. I've read a few Whittington and Luke Short westerns and really enjoyed them. The others I have yet to try, but they are now officially on my watch list.

I did find a pulp story by H.A. De Rosso at titled "Hide-away". It was a really tight and surprising story. I liked it a lot.
