THE GUN FIGHT
Richard Matheson, although beloved and respected, probably bugs a few people, too, because of his tendency to write in a new genre and then take that genre over completely.
I believe “Journal of the Gun Years” was Mr. Matheson’s first Western and since that time has occupied a fair piece of ground in that territory.
I have not yet cracked this one open yet. Frankly, I’m afraid to. Why? Because I need to do it when I have more than just a couple of hours available because I know that I absolutely WILL be up with this all night if I am not careful.
I’m either that much of a fan or Mr. Matheson is just that good. Or both.
