About the Author- James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 1851) was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century.

The normal run of things was for bounty hunter Jonathan Grimm to do the chasing, but when he found it was his turn to get out of town, the trail stretched all the way to Mexico. When he rode in, saddle-sore and stuck with the problem of trying to nail a hard case with no face, the small border town beyond the Rio Grande already seethed with tension.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Leaving school early with few qualifications, Bryan Holmes went to work in a factory and then, in his own words, "got cheesed off, jacked it all in and went to university." Upon graduating he went to work teaching economics in a College of Advanced Technology and stayed in the profession for the rest of his working career. Bryan started writing seriously in the 1950s, but it was only in the mid-1970s that he turned to the western. "The odd thing is I'd never read a western until I'd written my first. Of course, I've read many since – either to see how others do it or to read the books of writer-friends – but I originally fell into the genre quite by accident." After The Avenging Four was accepted for publication, Bryan never looked back. In addition to a steady stream of accomplished westerns, he also began to sell short horror, crime and SF stories in the fields of science fiction, "and hearing actors speak my lines on the BBC, no less." Although poor health has now effectively ended Bryan's writing career, we are pleased to be reissuing two of his best-loved series – The Reaper and Shatterhand – in digital editions.
