Them's Some Bad-Ass Banditos

Westerns really aren't my thing. I don't read them much, but I do enjoy a good one when I watch one. "3:10 to Yuma" was the last one I really liked and I do want to see the remake of  "True Grit".

I just read an excellent 600 word Western themed story by Court Merrigan over at Thrillers, Killers n Chillers. It's titled " Thirty Miles North of Cheyenne". It's more of a scene, but from the get-go, this one had my undivided attention, for the quality writing, suspense, and the imagery. I give the author mucho credit for taking a typical Western scenario that has been done a million times and would have most rolling their eyeballs, and pulling it off so well, especially in only 600 words.
