Dear Editors at Publishers Weekly,
I hope your week is going well! We’re proud to present the advance review copy of Gunslinger: The Dragon of Yellowstone Park, by Edward J. Knight. Gunslinger is a fantasy adventure set in the weird and wild west!
They say girls can’t be gunslingers. Beth’s gonna prove ’em wrong.
Even if she has to fight a dragon to do it.
It won’t be easy to prove her worth while working as a hotel chambermaid in Golden City, Colorado. The famous battle that defeated the giants was fought 13 years ago. The trolls remain confined east of the Mississippi. No one’s spotted a harpy since 1875.
But Beth trained with legends: the ghost of Calamity Jane gave her the gun, Wild Bill Hickok taught her to shoot.
And at sixteen, she’s ready to make a name of her own.
So when strange assailants murder a visiting Arapaho Indian shaman, Beth straps on her Colt .45. Without waiting for help, she must find the killers, defeat their dragon, and prevent the destruction of the Western world.
About the author:
A fourth generation Coloradoan, Edward J. Knight only left the Denver area long enough to learn how to put a satellite into orbit. Four satellites (and counting) later, he’s returned to both the mountains and writing fantastical fiction. Along the way, he met the love of his life and became the father of two amazingly curious kids. He’s a huge fan of tightly constructed universes and smart plots. He hopes his own Mythic West stories hold up to those standards.
