I've read two of them, one just last week.

I've read five.

Bill Crider said...

Only 4 for me.

I was surprised SHANE wasn't on the list.

Bill Crider said...

Probably not classy enough.

Red Sky at Morning
Laughing Boy
Dance Hall of the Dead

Same except omit Laughing Boy.

0. Yesterday I finished WEST TEXAS by Al Sarrantonio.

Kevin R. Tipple said...

I have not read any of these he suggests. I have read all of his Kevin Kerney mysteries. Good stuff.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

We had to read Laughing Boy in high school. It was about as light a read as Giants in the Earth. Well, maybe a little lighter.

Steve Oerkfitz said...

I would have chosen Blood Meridian and Warlock over a couple of these.

Dan said...

Haven't read a single one of 'em. Ben wasting my time with
THE BIG SKY
THE LAST HUNT
THE HELL-BENT KID
THE SEARCHERS
THE AUTHENTIC DEATH OF HENDRY JONES
SAINT JOHNSON
etc. etc....

Missing Glendon Swarthout's The Shootist.

Don Coffin said...

Riders of the Purple Sage?
The Virginian?

I guess they're too old to mention...

Don Coffin said...

For that matter, True Grit?
