Be sure to check out these titles from Bad Moon Books.

Cumberland Furnace and other Fear-forged Fables is a short story anthology that includes both Kelly's early works and stories he wrote after his return to the horror genre. Not to be missed. Everything I loved about Midnight Grinding applies here. (Only one of the tales is a repeat).

Timber Gray is Kelly's first published western (at least first published under the name Ronald Kelly). It's entertaining and has a splendidly imagined main character.

Have these on my Kindle waiting for the hard copy before I start reading.
I did the same with After the Burn, which came in the mail today!

I've never read anthing by Mr. Kelly but I have to admit that After the Burn sounds like it would be right up my alley. I may just have to take a closer look...

I found Cumberland Gap a great comapnion volume to MG. It was more playful and downright funnier. Not that it isn't scary. My only gripe would br that...

Are you sure about this?It could ruin one of the stories for you...Ok..Last chance...YOU KILLED ***** YOU MURDERING BASTARD!!!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

In the end, I decided it would be wrong to reveal it. I can't rob you of a great "Oh...shit!" moment. Don't hate me for growing a conscience.

I read Timber Grey a little while ago and liked it. It's kinda a western adventure tale that was fun to read. There's nothing supernatural about the book but it does have some gore, as Timber Grey is hired to hunt down a wolf pack that keeps on attacking humans. So the wolf pack is the "bad guys" if you will and there are some bloody scenes.

There was nothing heavy here with the story, but it was an enjoyable read. I'd recommend it!

Thanks for buying CF and TG, bookworm1. I hope you enjoy them both. Timber Gray is set during a blizzard in the dead of winter, so now is the perfect time to read it.

There certainly is room. Ron's got a lot on his plate right now, but I'm sure he's thought about it more than once.

Yeah, I've certainly thought about sending Timber out into the wilderness again, but considering the new life he's found at the end of the book, I think it's probably good to let sleeping wolves lie.

I've got other western characters that I was planning on writing westerns about, but never had the time. If I could figure out a way to quit my day job and write full-time, I could probably explore more genres that I am right now. But, for the time being, my young'uns must have their health/dental/vision insurance and so I must punch the time clock. :(
