Collected Western Stories

This Collection is inspired by the American West. They are stories of adventurers and explorers of the lands inhabited by the Native Americans who had to constantly fight the newcomers whom they considered as invaders. The stories develop paradoxal heroes: settlers and their families, risking all to begin a new life as well as the gunfighters who sought to impose the rule of the gun. More

About Paul Morrison

Paul Morrison has been a writer for most of his life. “I cannot remember a time when I was not writing, even when I was five or six years old. I grew up on books such as Treasure Island, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Time Machine — these and the many other books that I read in my early years fed my imagination, a voracious imagination transporting me to faraway places, other worlds and to other times in both the recent and more distant past...” Many of these worlds and places are visited in the novels and short story collections he has written.
Besides a love for fiction, Paul also reads widely on ancient history and archaeology. “I am particularly interested in Ancient Egypt, mainly Old Kingdom Egypt during the age of the pyramid builders. I was always intrigued as to how the pyramids were built and about the lives of the pharaohs as well as the workers who constructed the pyramids. There were many questions filling my mind, but few if any answers.” This inquiring interest led to the Giza Trilogy books, a monumental work of well-researched fiction set against the backdrop of the three pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Together, with their associated books, The Divine Light (currently being written) and the completed, Eternal Egypt, Supplement to the Giza Trilogy, these books total more than one million words! Other books written cover a wide range of subjects including historical, science fiction, ghost and detective stories as well as many other genres.
Paul currently lives in Hobart, Tasmania with his wife in a house overlooking the Derwent River. “The magnificent views of Hobart and of Mount Wellington inspire me in my writings — but the most important inspiration is my wife, Helena.”

The Review
Still enjoy the memories of old Western films and the piles of books about wild west on my father’s table. It was thinking of these moments that I started reading this collection of this author I learnt to enjoy in so many other stories and genres.
Another Smashwords’s treasure for all those who dig around about this particular genre whether if you are thinking about Gold Fever that even nowadays turns the minds of adventurers upside down, the possibility of exploring the beginnings of this immense Canvas that is the new continent and the challenges it presented to the explorers, the struggle of the native Americans to defend their way of life, the gains and losses portrayed by every story and adventure.
A reading I would share with my old man if he were still around. I loved the reading and the opportunity to relive so many moments shared with my sweet father.
