Heading West: Western Stories
Noel M. Loomis was a truly fine storyteller whose fiction, as Bill Pronzini observes, has "a lean, reportorial quality that provides intense realism without crossing the line into sensationalism". The nine stories collected here demonstrate his versatility, his broad range of interests, his emphasis on historical accuracy, and his objective realism, while differing widely in setting, period, character, and tone. Included are a Spur Award-winning story about an old Comanche warrior nearing his dying time, and a railroad-building tale set in Mexico featuring a John Henryesque character named Blue Buckley.
