************ Thanks for the recommendation, David. I ordered it from Abebooks. I was starting to run low on unread Willeford anyway. I think I've got WOMAN CHASER and another Hoke Moseley and that's it. Oh! I've got MACHINE IN WARD ELEVEN, too.

I haven't read a lot of Westerns. Closest I can think of to a noir Western is McCarthy's BLOOD MERIDIAN. It's got the through-the-roof dark and sinister atmosphere, but there ain't a whole lot of the fear and desperation that I usually associate with noir.

Thanks again, miker
