Artwork of the Day: The Night Horseman (by John Leone)


by John Leone

Though the cover is from a later edition, this book was originally published in 1920, one of the many westerns that Max Brand wrote over the course of his life.  (Brand died in 1944, while serving in the U.S. Army.)  From the information that I found online, this book was about “Whistlin'” Dan Barry, a cowboy who only rode at night and whose horse was named Satan!  That would be enough to keep me as far away from Whistlin’ Dan as possible!

The cover for this edition was done by John Leone.

Artwork of the Day: A Trap For Sam Dodge (by John Leone)


by John Leone

This is from the back cover:

“Sam Dodge had no particular use for Miles Ringo. True, they had been buddies in their younger, hell-raising days. But then Ringo got the job that Sam wanted – and Sam’s girl, too. Now Sam was back in town to catch a murderer, the murder of Miles Ringo.”

This book was originally published in 1965 and it looks like Sam’s run into some trouble. I think he’s still got a few tricks up his sleeve. Afterall, he is the fastest draw in Bent River.

This cover was done by John Leone.
