Product Description

Edited by
Gerald Hausman
This anthology with more than 20 contributors from a variety of authors has something to please for every fan. Editor and contributor Gerald Hausman introduces the anthology with a brief history of GUNS. Stories range in tone from The Momaday Gun by Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday, to Choice of Weapons by New York Times bestselling author Jane Lindskold.

There is a spiritual history of firearms as well as a historical one.

The truth is, they have been with us for a very long time. Every family has a gun story, a firearm anecdote that bares the bones of the oldest argument there is—the one about the plain old cussedness of the human race. In this unusual and varied collection of tales written by masters of the word, we begin with America's legendary past—with the pirate Blackbeard and the gunslinger Billy the Kid, followed by Teddy Roosevelt and moving forward in time to Andy Warhol. Here are stories that will shock and bewilder.

Stories of bravery and murder, stories of love, betrayal and suicide.
Sometimes it seems that the gun is doing the talking—not for itself—but for all of us.

5.0 out of 5 stars And a lot of them are also fun. Some are fiction and some actually happened Jan. 19 2017
By Jonathan Rudman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
GUNS is a book of many separate stories. You can read one or two at a time and then come back to the book when you want. The authors and the periods of the stories are diverse, and all the stories are solid and strong. And a lot of them are also fun. Some are fiction and some actually happened. I read one or two at night and saved the rest for later, trying to make the book last. I don't think you have to have guns or use guns to love these stories. They are really about people who had to make some life changing choices.
