THE DARK RIDERS

Years ago a young orphan killed a vicious outlaw who raped his sister,
but when Chris Durrin thought nightmares and grief would be the only
things stalking him for the rest of his life, he was wrong. Dead wrong.
Because Milus Clint, the outlaw Chris shot down on that fateful day in
the past, has returned from the grave, a creature neither alive nor dead,
a thing of the night and bloodthirsty craving. Dead-Walkers, the Apaches
called them, but the white man had another name: Vampire.

PISTOLERO

The parched dusty streets of the Old West carried many a threat for
an unsuspecting traveler but none more dangerous than the evil that
stalked the night-darkened alleys of Mascarada, New Mexico. Hiding
in shadow, slashing and ripping the flesh of young women and leaving
behind their mutilated bodies, the Mascarada Ripper vanishes into the
night like a ghost. But when a young outlaw is offered a pardon to bring
the killer to justice dead or alive, he finds himself confronted with the
horrors of his own past and the loss of the very thing he sought to
protect by running from Mascarada years before.

Excerpt


LANCE HOWARD WESTERN SPOTLIGHT!

When the Chulo brothers sweep into the town of Thanody, a town that has sworn off violence, all hell breaks loose. And when Marshal James Tredder calls in old friend and manhunter Josh Dellin to track down the vicious killers known as the Prairie Wolves, the West runs scarlet with blood.

Within hours Josh find himself forced to confront a powerful land owner bent on covering up his sons' brutal raids and struggling to protect the life of a beautiful young woman who's the only witness to their foul deeds.

"Not only do Howard's westerns contain enough action and traditional shoot 'em up for the most discriminating western novel reader, but they craft vivid characters and explore the vast panorama of human experience and emotion with situations relevant and immediate for a modern audience...you'll find gunslingers and crooked lawmen right alongside battered wives and homeless outcasts...a western writer for the non-western reader and horse opera lover alike!" --Pogo's Literary Reviews
