Fury at Troon's Ferry by Mark Bannerman


Darkness was taking hold as he strode purposefully up the street. The air was cold, bringing a shiver to his spine and all the stores were closed and the sidewalks quiet. The only sounds came from the saloon; the desultory notes of a piano, the clink of glasses, the raucous voices of men and the shrill laughter of women. His wife, Leah, had once told him that nothing was achieved by violence. Now he was convinced that she’d been wrong. The desire to inflict vengeance brought the bitter taste of bile to his mouth. Before bullets started flying, as surely they must, would he be able to extract the truth from the man he sought…and despised?

The Drifter's Revenge by Owen G. Irons


The job in the Montana timber camp for the railroad meant nothing to the drifter, Riley. It was just another paycheck as he rambled west toward Oregon. But then he had seen the railroad company men gun down his friend Ben Comfrey over seventy-four dollars. Ben had a widow and a son needing that money to get them through a hard winter and so Riley took a hand. The railroad bosses first tried to laugh him off, then they tried to kill him. With fury in his heart and a capable gun in hand, Riley now went after them instead. He had set his mind on vengeance and was going to pursue it to the end of the line.
