Short, fast, western adventure set around the second Battle of Adobe Wells, which is a thing that happened, when a bunch of Indians got sick and tired of all their buffalo being shot and skinned and decided to kill a bunch of buffalo hunters and skinners holed up in a saloon. Bullets and arrows fly and Lansdale spins his yarn with his usual aplomb. Narrated by Nat Love, an ex-slave turned cowboy who has turned up in a few other Lansdale stories, this is a prequel or a taster of sorts to a forthcoming novel to which I am now very eagerly looking forward.

Novella that was actually written before Paradise Sky, but reads like an outtake from that novel. Since I had just finished Paradise Sky and went immediately into reading Black Hat Jack, it started a little slow for me as Lansdale set up his characters (since I already knew some of them from the novel), but after that it was a great and fast read (125 pages). Recommended to Lansdale fans, fans of Western Fiction, and fans of African American stories. ( )

Black Hat Jack and me had been riding at night, trying to take in the cooler weather, avoid the sunlight, but mostly avoid being seen.
