Guns of the Brasada

(The second book in the Ballard and McCall series)
A Novella by

The brainchild of Amazon Kindle bestselling western writers Mike Stotter and Ben Bridges, PICCADILLY PUBLISHING is dedicated to issuing classic fiction from Yesterday and Today!


Ballard and McCall were in Texas, working for Henry Conway, an old friend of Ballard's, on Conway's Lazy-C. But trouble was brewing as Yancey Merrick, owner of the big Diamond-M, kept pushing to expand his empire. Then Harry Conway, Henry's son, was run through the brasada thicket before being shot in the back and killed.

Determined to find the guilty party, Ballard and McCall suddenly found themselves deep in a developing range war.

Yancey Merrick might have had the advantage of superior numbers, but he couldn't reckon on the fighting fury of Ballard and McCall as they cut down the odds, exposed the scheme behind Merrick's long term plans, and caused it to literally blow up in his face.

Neil Hunter is a pseudonym of the prolific Lancashire-born writer Michael R. Linaker. As Neil Hunter, Mike wrote two classic western series, BODIE THE STALKER and JASON BRAND. Under the name Richard Wyler he produced four stand-alone westerns, INCIDENT AT BUTLER'S STATION, THE SAVAGE JOURNEY, BRIGHAM'S WAY and TRAVIS. Another western, HIGH KILL, was later published in the SUNDANCE series as BOUNTY KILLER. His western output can also be found under the names 'Dan Stewart', 'John C. Danner' and 'Frederick H. Christian', the latter name employed when he ghost-wrote an additional five titles in Frederick Nolan's popular FRANK ANGEL series. Mike has written three 'nasty' horror novels under his own name, but since the late 1980s has become best-known as one of the most popular contributors to Gold Eagle's MACK BOLAN series, chronicling the adventures of PHOENIX FORCE, THE EXECUTIONER and STONY MAN, as well as his own action-adventure series, CADE.
