Valley of the Sun (Audio Dramatization)

I know that the first thing you'll probably notice is how the title above says "Audio Dramatization," but the picture to the left has a little "First time in paperback!" stamp. Before you fully discredit me, please know that the only audio copy I have of "Valley of the Sun" is an mp3 download—as such, I had no physical cover to scan into my computer, and so was left with whatever I could find. I found the image to your left on some website and, as there is nothing worse than not opening a blog entry with a picture, opted to include it.

Luckily, this audio production was more interesting than the paragraph you just read. It wasn't the best I've listened to, but it kept my attention well enough. Basically, a ranch hand on his way back from a big cattle sale is ambushed and robbed by a former coworker and a couple of his sketchy accomplices. The rest of the story is about how he battles adversity to serve justice and clear his name with the woman he loves. Standard stuff, but entertaining. Recommended.

Samurai Cowboy

Having some fun playing with some features that are new to blogger since I last called it quits. Not sure if this will be the final look, but there's a lot more you can do with the layout than you could when I started way back in 2008. I'll keep fiddling with it until I get it how I like. In the meantime, listen to this song by Kurt Elling—it rules.

Back, sort of maybe

Been awhile. But I think it’s time to start writing again. The fact is that I’ve missed it, and as of recently I can’t really think of a reason not to. If you ever read this blog, you know that I started out reviewing Louis L’Amour stories, then expanded it to include other stuff while mostly focusing on L’Amour. I want to continue doing that—only thing is, since it’s been so long, everything I ever wrote is gone, with the exception of the few posts I wrote when I changed the blog to Red Horse Reboot. Not sure if I’ll keep that name—or, honestly, how long I’ll continue writing. That’s why I’m refraining from making a big declamatory “I’m back!” and you all add me to your blog rolls, then I stop writing and you think, “Huh?” So, anyway, look for something kind of soon. Not sure what the content will be, but you’ll find it here, at least for the short term.
