    1. Charles Gramlich writes a heckuva Western.I'll admit, I'm more a fan of the author than the genre: like SF/F, I seem to spend a lot of time weeding through flat, paint-by-numbers stories looking for something fresh, original and enjoyable. But I'd already seen what the author did for horror (Cold in the Light) and SF/F (his brilliant Talera series), so I was happy to take the chance.I'm glad I did. Killing Trail is one damn fine collection. Not only does Gramlich have a real gift for action, pac [...]

    2. Charles Gramlich loves the Old West, and it shows in this short book of short stories and essays about it. The characters grab hold of you from the start of each story, and you're reluctant to let them go at the end. Noble heroes, callow villains, a world sharply drawn, beautiful writing--what's not to love?

    3. Synopsis/blurb…RIDE INTO DANGER! Killing Trail is a collection of western short stories by Charles Allen Gramlich, the author of the Talera Trilogy and Cold in the Light. It contains: Killing Trail: When they dumped Angela Cody on Lane Holland’s ranch she was scant moments from death.

    4. A collection of western stories in ebook format as well as a couple of pieces where they author discusses influences on his writing, most notably Louis L'Amour. That's all his writing, including fantasies and horror. also he talks about some of his favorite writers to read.Reasonably priced and worth a look.

    5. KILLING TRAIL combines all the elements of good Western storytelling - strong characters, hard places, and grim down to earth action. It is a very entertaining read.

    6. This is a good book filled with short stories. Gramlich gives us good tales in a mixture of his and Louis L'Amour's style of story telling.

    7. I grew up watching westerns on TV rather than reading authors like Louis L'Amour. After reading Charles Gramlich's short story collection KILLING TRAIL, I'm convinced that was an oversight. Gramlich's stories give one the feel of the Old West without being stereotypical, and yet all the key ingredients are there: the dirt, the leather, the gray dusters, the holsters, and so much more. I was back in familiar territory, and it felt just right. The stories work because the characters are well-drawn [...]

    8. Wow, this was linked pretty fast. This is mine, so I'm not giving it a rating. But I liked it, even after reading it over about twenty-five times as I was editing it all.
