Relentless, like a dog on the scent, they went where the law couldn't-or wouldn't-go, even into territory just this side of Hell. They were hunting robbers, murders, and those whose crimes were too horrible even to talk about. But sometimes the hunters became the hunted, and suddenly the stakes changed.

Here for Western fiction fans are the works of Robert J. Conley, a Western Writers of America Spur Award winner; W. Michael Farmer, a finalist for a Western Writers of America Spur award for best first novel in 2006 and a New Mexico Book Awards Finalist for Historical Fiction; D.B. Jackson, a winner of the Will Rogers Medallion Award; Doug Hocking, Jim Williams, Dave Fisher, Chris Perez, Jerry Guin, Wesley Tallant and Phil Truman, writers who have a unique story-telling talent.

"Dead or Alive. What could be more compelling, more dramatic, more gripping for authors of Western novels or fictional short stories-and their many devoted fans-than those three words," said Mike Harris, La Frontera Publishing's publisher. "In Dead or Alive, the second collection of short fictional stories in our new series, "La Frontera Publishing Presents the American West," you'll find eleven stories all dealing in one way or another with those three words."

Dead or Alive (180 pages, trade paperback) is distributed through the University of New Mexico Press (www.unmpress.com).
