Under the Burning Sun
Of all the amazing writers published in the popular fiction magazines of the 1940s and '50s, one of the greatest was H.A. DeRosso. Within twenty years he published nearly two hundred Western short stories, all noted for their brilliant style, their realism and their compelling vision of the dark side of the Old West. Now, finally, for the first time in paperback, we have a collection of the best work of this true master of the Western story.
This collection, edited by Bill Pronzini, presents a cross-section of DeRosso's Western fiction, spanning his entire career. Here are eleven of his best stories and his riveting short novel, "The Bounty Hunter", all powerful and spellbinding, and all filled with the excitement, the passion, and the poetry of Western writing at its peak.
