Gun Wizard

(1969)
(Book 46 in the Floating Outfit series)
A novel by

 
 
They were all at Tombstone to try and win the matched pair of gold-inlaid Colt Cavalry Peacemakers.
Bat Masterson was there, in dude dress and with a fancy hat.
Tom Horn was there, looking like a bold Apache war chief.
Burt Alvord was there, the ex-deputy who never brought in a living prisoner.
Wyatt Earp was there, looking like a prosperous trail-end town undertaker.
On the contest day nine men stood on the line, eight of them tall, and who could draw and shoot in half a second.
The ninth man was small, an insignificant Texan against whom the bartender of the Bucket of Blood Saloon gave odds of ten to one.
His name was Dusty Fog.

J. T. Edson was a former British Army dog-handler who wrote more than 130 Western novels, accounting for some 27 million sales in paperback. Edson’s works - produced on a word processor in an Edwardian semi at Melton Mowbray - contain clear, crisp action in the traditions of B-movies and Western television series. What they lack in psychological depth is made up for by at least twelve good fights per volume. Each portrays a vivid, idealized “West That Never Was”, at a pace that rarely slackens.
