Hearses to Horses

Cullen Gallagher, best known for writing Pulp Serenade, a blog devoted to crime fiction, is apparently readying the launch of a new short-fiction Webzine. Called Fires on the Plain, it will feature Western tales “with an edge,” as he explains on the still barely developed site. “Hard-boiled. Noir. Gritty. Dark. Tough. Stuff that Harry Whittington, Clifton Adams, H.A. DeRosso, or Brian Garfield would have written.”

Short story, novella, and serial submissions, as well as author interviews, are now being sought. Click here for more information.

Nice. I'm looking forward to this. Though I've never been a fan of the Old West type stories, I've always believed they were underappreciated as a crime medium. Think about it, aren't all Westerns, in some way, crime stories? Crime, at least in the context of today, was a way of life in the Old West. Well, before laws governed most things, I suppose.
