The Gun-Brand (The Argosy Library) by James B. Hendryx

The Gun-Brand (The Argosy Library)

Through Chloe Elliston’s veins coursed the reckless blood of her world-roving ancestor, the legendary “Tiger” Elliston. Tiger Ellison, the seaman who had built a fleet of cargo steamers that tramped the whole wide world. Tiger Elliston, scourge of pirates from the South Seas to distant Asia.

With her entourage, Harriett Penny and the Amazonian Big Lena, the granddaughter of Tiger Elliston had come to the northland to move freight up the Slave River and make her own fortune. But north of 60 is a hard, raw land, one where women did not readily fit in. Not even the fearless offspring of a human tiger. For here Chloe would become embroiled in a bitter feud between “Brute” McNair—“the Bad Man of the North” and the free-trader named Pierre Lapierre. Dare she trust one over the other? And which one?

Strange Doings on Halfaday Creek by James B. Hendryx

Strange Doings on Halfaday Creek

Cushing’s Fort on Halfaday Creek is conveniently located in Canadian territory close to the border of United States territory, so that men in ill repute with the Mounted Police can elude them easily. There are “outlaws” of Halfaday Creek live, a band of doughty prospectors ruled by their self-appointed czar, Black John Smith, one of many John Smiths that inhabit that notorious lair.

The Saga of Halfaday Creek

The Saga of Halfaday Creek

As Black John, “the Law” on the Creek, is fond of saying, the interval between the crime and the hanging is hardly worth mentioning. This time, and with the sometime assistance of Corporal Downey, Black John deals competently with assorted skullduggery.

Skullduggery on Halfaday Creek

Skullduggery on Halfaday Creek

Readers of James B. Hendryx’s previous books will have no difficulty in remembering Halfaday Creek on the Alaskan-Canadian border, or Black John, the one-man police force who metes out justice to a variety of dubious characters. For those who are new to these tales of the Northwest, we need only say that Halfaday Creek is the home of a number of outlaws who find it convenient to have a border to step across when the law appears, and that Black John spends most of his time keeping the “crick” clear of swindlers, gold thieves, unwanted wives, and cardsharps.
