Bass Reeves - Frontier Marshal by Gary PhillipsBorn a slave, Bass Reeves would go on to be one of the fiercest, most resourceful lawman-bounty man in the Indian Territories of the Wild West. His life serves as the basis for these four stories, each 15,000 words. Bass’ life is also slated to be an HBO miniseries, but you can enjoy the excitement of his adventures in these stories – Ride from Three Devils (by yours truly), Whiskey Road, No Master but Duty and a Town Named Affliction — that make the Hateful 8 look tame!

“The greatest lawman you never heard of” — Ron Fortier, managing editor of Airship 27

BASS REEVES is available from Amazon.


Born under a bad sign with family roots in Texas near the Guadalupe River and the Mississippi Delta, Gary Phillips must keep writing to forestall his appointment at the crossroads. Recent work includes co-editing and contributing to the sci-fi anthology Occupied Earth, stories about life and resistance under the alien bootheels of the Mahk-Ra, and has short stories in Jewish Noir and Asian Pulp.
