6GUN JUSTICE CONVERSATIONS—PETER ACKERMAN


SIX-GUN JUSTICE CONVERSATIONS
PETER ACKERMAN 
In today’s Six-Gun Justice Conversation, Paul Bishop talks with his friend Peter Ackerman, a western fan and a collector of Western movie and TV tie-in novels, and a man with a direct connection to Gunsmoke. 

Six-Gun Justice Conversations are occasional bonus features in which Six-Gun Justice Podcast co-hosts Paul Bishop or Richard Prosch get to hang out in the virtual Six-Gun Justice Saloon chewing the jerky with friends and writers who also love the western genre. There is no agenda or any particular western subject, simply an informal chat about westerns in whatever media comes up.

Like the full-length Six-Gun Justice Podcast episodes and the Six-Gun Justice Speed Listens, this bonus Six-Gun Justice Conversation is available on all your favorite podcast platforms or simply listen by clicking the player below...

WESTERN NOVELS—STARDUST TRAIL


WESTERN NOVELS
STARDUST TRAIL
A NATE ROSS NOVEL
J.R. SANDERS
Note: Although I’ve enjoyed interviewing over 250 authors on LA Talk Radio’s weekly radio show The Writer’s Block—I’ve never written a review. I hope you will find something here that works for you. I’m not an author or writer of any kind, I’m approaching the book as a reader—and I loved this book, in fact, I inhaled it... Bobbi Jean Bell

I have  been a fan of author J.R. Sanders from his first western fiction title, The Littlest Wrangler to his acclaimed tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty with little fanfare Some Gave All: Forgotten Old West Lawmen Who Died With Their Boots On. When he announced there was a new book in the works with a story line set in 1938 Hollywood and a cast of characters including a private detective, B western movie actors, Marion Robert Morrison, Max Terhune and Elmer Sneezeweed, Herbert Yates of Republic Pictures as well as locations like Chatsworth’s Iverson Ranch and Vasquez Rocks…well, I was hooked!

This much anticipated book, Stardust Trail is out, and, worth the wait. Told through the eyes of Los Angeles based private investigator, Nate Ross hired by Republic Pictures, we see what he sees, and he describes his world in easy, uncomplicated terms yet with details that transport us right into his world. Nate Ross tells us what he prefers and what he thinks—we learn he likes pastrami and Pickwick Ale, he’s a skilled eavesdropper, he doesn’t like stakeout work or camping or hiking, he faces trouble head on, and he’s a deft investigator. He has a knack for getting folks to trust him and he does not betray that trust. I fell in love with Nate Ross from page one and am delighted to learn more books will follow.

J.R. Sanders, through Nate Ross, spins us a story with 1938 household names—Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Yakima Canutt—some are important to the storyline like Nate’s high school friend Duke Morrison (later known as John Wayne) and others help set the time frame. His descriptions of locations are spot on, one of my favorite passages is the mule ride Nate and Dusty take through Vasquez Rocks—if you’ve never been there—J.R. nails it.

Pick up Stardust Trail, get comfy in your favorite spot with your favorite beverage, tune out distractions—unless you’ve got music by Gene Autry or Dave Stamey handy—and settle in for an enjoyable ride along the Stardust Trail.
