The Western Online gets a very nice review!

Nothing makes you more excited than receiving good news, especially when its totally unexpected. There were some very kind words written about The Western Online and some very good reviews of some of our stories. Needless to say, I am extremely flattered. And of course, without the fine work submitted by our contributors, all of this would not be possible.

There was also some nice things said about Frontier Tales Magazine, where one of my stories was recently published. And Kenneth Mark Hoover and his Haxan stories received some compliments as well. All in all, it was a good day for Westerns. :)
