About Josh Langston

Josh Langston writes books which have amused, angered, enlightened and entertained many readers. He regularly mines history for background that's little known but reliably fascinating. His plots are complex, interconnected and layered with humor and suspense; his characters are rarely predictable, and even his bad guys tend to be both engaging and diabolical.
Langston's readers are rarely satisfied with just one of his books, whether it's part of a series or a stand-alone. He's proud to let his southern roots show in his characters and his choice of settings.
His two most recent novel releases are: Treason, Treason!, an alternate history/time travel adventure set in the American Revolution, and A Primitive in Paradise, book three in his series about Mato, the two-foot tall American Indian warrior.
When he's not working on a new novel, Langston is most likely editing, teaching, blogging, or helping his wonderful wife watch their amazing grandkids. He’s even been known to goof off from time to time.

This is a fun collection of well written short cowboy stories. The characters are true 'characters' and the stories are simple but interesting.

Love, love, love this collection of short stories! The author threads the town of Greely throughout each of the stories, which I had never seen done before. The characters are intriguing, fun, and memorable (a hallmark of the author),the writing is clever, and the stories well crafted. Snap this one up for an entertaining and enjoyable read!

Six from Greely is a great collection of short stories that turn out to be more connected than you first expect. They bring a dusty town in 'the wild west' to life through the intriguing tales of people passing through over a century. The twist at the end shows how the collective fates and impacts of the inhabitants form the history and character of the town. Josh Langston's writing style grabs your attention from page one and keeps you wondering after you finish the last.
