Black Horse Westerns Weekend Extravaganza


The intrepid Gary Dobbs has promised at least 100 posts devoted to Black Horse Westerns this weekend on THE TAINTED ARCHIVE, and he's already halfway there. There are interviews and reviews and articles and guest posts up the wazoo - so many it's tough to single out only a few. But since my fingers are too tired to list them all, here are some I particularly enjoyed:

Charlie Whipple (Chuck Tyrell) gives us the lowdown on his native Arizona.
A two-part interview with Howard Hopkins (Lance Howard). Part 1 is HERE.
Nik Morton (Ross Morton) offers advice on researching the Old West.
An interview with Ed Ferguson (Lee Walker).
An interview with Mathew P. Mayo.
David Whitehead discusses the future of the genre.
Gary reveals what really happened at the OK Corral.

These are all great starting points, but don't stop there. You should have a look at everything, because there's plenty more coming tomorrow!

I'd like to find a spinner rack like that, but if I did, I don't know where I'd put it.

Not being as much of a fan of westerns as thou, I'll only be skimming what's there, but it is good stuff. Thanks as always.

I'd like to have that spinner rack too, and would have the same problem. I swiped the pic from Gary's blog. I do have a very cool "Hey Kids!! Comics!!" rack just like the one on the header of Booksteve's Library, but no place to put that either.
