Why You Should Buy A Black Horse Western!


Black Horse Westerns are published by Robert Hale Publishers in London. They are essentially lending library titles with a low print-run. Many of them are also later published in large print by Linford and distributed by the Ulverscroft Foundation. The Hale Black Horse Westerns are hardbacks and sell for about twenty bucks each. Hale publishes multiple titles each month and are the only publisher in the world committed to publishing westerns extensively. No American publisher currently comes close to Hale’s output. The Black Horse Westerns are noted for their strong characters, brisk pacing and plentiful action. They are all reminiscent of the classic pulp stories of the 30s and 40s, but often they are much better. In fact, I contend that the Black Horse Westerns have taken the place and are the rightful heirs to the grand adventure writers of yesteryear. Each Black Horse Western is a collector’s item. Many of the writers have produced dozens of memorable stories. Howard Hopkins, Ian Parnham, David Whitehead and so many others have excelled in a genre that too many people claim is dead. Black Horse Westerns have become so popular (and with the American market frozen like a deer caught in the headlights) that popular writers such as John D. Nesbitt are having their stories published by Robert Hale. I have published two Black Horse Westerns with a third forthcoming and more in the works. I am proud to be a very small part of this prestigious group. Some of these writers such as Gary Dobbs have been highly successful in generating media interest in their books. And the books are good. Each one with its own distinctive style, but all of them satisfying the demand for grand old-fashioned adventures. Visit Robert Hale Publishers website for details. The books are available on Amazon worldwide. Isn’t it time you saddled up with a Black Horse Western?
