I have these westerns: THE BIG LAND, BITTER SAGE, THE BUSHWHACKERS, FIGHTING MAN, THE LONE GUNHAWK, THIS GUN IS STILL ("Every man who'd ever forced a showdown with Deever had a tombstone to prove it--until a quiet stranger packing a Colt came to town"), TOWN TAMER ("Gunfighting was Rosser's business--he was in it because he liked it"), and WANTED! ("The name was Rawlins, the town was Deadwood ... the job was vengeance").

I haven't read any of them. I've never heard of JOHNNY VENGEANCE (except maybe for seeing it mentioned here), but man, that's a good title.
