K. PATRICK GLOVER, whose tough, hard-bitten Western tale 'Devils and Dust' is one of the stories which appears in the first issue of Weaponizer magazine. I asked K-Pat to do some revisions for me before we went to print, but due to my own stupidity, managed to print the version without the revisions. The revisions were minor and cosmetic, but by way of apology for putting him through his paces and then not updating the story in the final print mag, I've elected to reprint the authoritative, revised version here on the site. So today, you get a special treat - those of you who have read the story once already can marvel at the final version. For those of you who haven't yet bought a copy of the magazine, this serves as a great teaser, showing how much hard work has gone into every story and every piece of art in our debut issue. If you like this story, you'll LOVE the rest of the mag... so try, and then buy!
Would I have come to Epitaph if I had known what would happen on that
day? If I could somehow have glimpsed into the future and seen the cloud
of death and despair? I think, even knowing the price I would pay, that
I would have. But there was no hint on that hot summer day of what was to come. No
foreshadowing. That was the stuff of fiction, of dusty dime novels full
of melodrama and gun smoke. Real life didn’t work that way, at least not
in my experience ...READ FICTION: 'DEVILS & DUST' NOW!
