“Listen, Joe. You been ranger, sheriff, U.S. Marshal and God only knows what else in your time, not to mention hoss-thief and less reputable things. Now you’re running this here newspaper, and it ain’t no job for an active old-timer.”
Sleepy Sandoval County is where you’ll find Joe Trimble: drunken towney ex-newspaper publisher, currently out of work for the duration the World War. But that doesn’t mean Joe Trimble is resting on his laurels as he finds himself in the midst of German spies, lost goldmines, badlands rustling, and even the disappearance of his own brother!
A lost classic from The King of the Pulps, author H. Bedford-Jones. Never before reprinted, this complete series is fondly compared to Bedford-Jones’ earlier “Pinky Jenkins” series.
Left-Handed Guns: The Tales of Joe Trimble (The H. Bedford-Jones Library) contains the following stories:
- “Hero Maker”
- “Strictly on the Loose”
- “Fireworks at Mesa Verde”
- “Pioneer Times”
- “Left-Handed Guns”
