Tom (Black Dog) Roberts - Award-Winning Western Author!


Thanks to Mr. J.M. Reasoner for this tip . . .

We now have proof that Tom Roberts, publisher of many fine story collections under the Black Dog Books imprint, is also a fine storyteller himself.  He's one of the cash prize winners of the first annual Rope and Wire Short Story Competition. Tom's story "Toby" is ready for your reading pleasure right HERE.

Meanwhile, Black Dog Books keeps chugging along. Among the many mystery, fantasy, adventure and horror titles available are the two western collections below, both highly recommended by yours truly. Visit BLACK DOG BOOKS and check them out!

Dave,

Thanks for spreading the word. I enjoyed working on this story.

As I also posted on Rough Edges, please read the story before reading the judges comments so the twist is not entirely given away.

Gotta love a title like "lust of the lawless."

Way to go, Tom! He's a very nice guy, from my limited interactions with him, and Black Dog Books is a treasure-trove of pulp goodness. Hurrah.

I've already read the judges comments, but it won't stop me from enjoying the story.
