    "Maybe I missed something?"

    I acquired this novel because I so much appreciated Journey of the Dead and Johnny Vermillion, both of which were excellent, both as verbal constructs and as audio presentations: Two very different works that are tied together in my mind by a recognizable intelligence.

    Gashade, though, is oddly vacuous: both the person and the novel. I wish I could say otherwise.

    Guidall is excellent, though, as always; and there are, truly, many interesting moments in this novel.

    "Billy Gashade"

    This is a thoroughly entertaining fictional narrative wriiten against a historical tapestry. Anyone who grew up appreciating the wild west and its characters should enjoy it. The narrator is excellent.
