    "Western Hall of Fame Anthology is a collection of short stories. It is available from Amazon for $2.54 for a hard cover. If you like westerns then this is an absolute steal at $2.54. It has stories from timeless authors like Louis L'Amour and John Cunningham. This fits the topic perfectly."

    "I study fictional depictions of the western United States, this book is among those I've used in my studies. The stories are easily digestible, and give a surprisingly accurate glimpse into the lives and minds of those in the old west."

    "If you're looking for a grouping of short stories, this is the one for you. They're all clever and themed very nicely without having to make it feel like you're always reading the same basic story, which I really appreciated."

    "I love western movies, books, decor; actually anything western. However this series of short stories were not my favorites. The stories were a little hard to follow and I did not get immersed in them as have others."

    "I love westerns and this was ok. Some of the stories in the book were great but I'd say most were just "meh". He's a good writer but this wasn't his best."
