Killing Trail, by Charles A Gramlich

Posted: Wednesday, July 07, 2010 by Travis Cody in

It gives me great pleasure to promote a self-publishing effort by a blog pal.  

Charles A. Gramlich, of the blog Razored Zen, has just launched his ebook on Amazon.  It's called Killing Trail, and you can download it to your Kindle by clicking the link, for a cost of $2.99.  If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the Kindle App for PC, and purchase the book that way.

Here's a synopsis of the book. 


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. She managed to speak only a few words, but those were enough to make Lane strap on his guns and ride out on a killing trail.

Showdown at Wild Briar: Accused of a murder he didn’t commit, Josh Allen Boone has ridden a long way from his Wild Briar Ranch. But now he’s coming home, and the real killers are waiting for him with a rope. (Never before published.)

Powder Burn: They said Davy Bonner’s luck had run out and they ambushed him along a dark road. But luck or no, Davy wasn’t going down without a fight. (Written specifically for this collection.)

Once Upon a Time with the Dead: For the gray raiders, death was an old friend.

The work also includes two nonfiction essays, one about Louis L’Amour and another about the real Wild West.

I've read Talera trilogy and I highly recommend Charles' work.

Congratulations, Charles, on your latest book!

  1. I promised myself that I would read one of his books this summer. Thanks for the reminder to get myself over to Amazon and buy one. It sounds intriguing although I skipped most of the synopsis because I didn't want the spoiler (kinda like you skip my meme questions. ha!)

    From what I've heard, he is an incredible writer.
