“Six Bullets to Sundown, Volume 13” is (and this should be no surprise) the 13th book in the “Six Bullets” series. It’s a relatively new series, and a new volume is being released almost monthly.
This particular anthology has six stories by six different authors. As with most anthologies, I liked some stories more than others and some styles more than others, just as you will when you read it. That’s the great thing about anthologies — the opportunity to find a new writer whose style you enjoy, or maybe reconnect with an old favorite you haven’t read in a while. Reading a series of short stories like this reminds me of ordering a beer sampler from a great brewpub. It’s always exciting to pick up the next glass, or in this case, read the next story, and discover something new. Even if it’s not to your taste, the experience still makes it worth it.
Full disclosure: One of the stories, “Unnamed Sources,” is mine.
The other stories are by Michael D. Abbott, Jim Burnett, Robert Andrews, M. Allen and Michael Haden. I’ve shared pages with most of these writers before — and enjoy their work — but Robert Andrews was new to me and a fun discovery, exactly what anthologies are for.
I hope you give it a try, and I’d love to hear your feedback.
Thank you, and enjoy!
