Having been lukewarm about Gruber's mystery fiction I have dodged his westerns. I can change that.
And I have some Constiner in the archives, which will now ascend to the top of the To Be Read pile.

Frank Gruber wrote a bunch of hardboiled westerns, books like Peace Marshal, Johnny Vengeance, etc. And I think Merle Constiner did too. Now, Constiner was really good... why is he forgotten? Gruber was somewhat less good - still effective, but not very rich in the idea department. If he could think of nothing better, he got gruesome with the bullets.
