This story is a sequel to “The Man Who Had a Death Wish” by J. F. Gonzalez and myself. (Not that you have to have read it.) The way that story got wrote is JF sent me a version to which I added the character of Deputy Sheriff Hope and a Mythos element. Having created Hope (in a very Louis L’Amour vein) I felt fine in continuing his adventures on my own. “Heller” is the first of two sequels so far. “Laocoon” is the other. The term “Heller” in the Old West meant someone good with a gun. Of course, to a horror writer, it’s irresistible…This story originally appeared in Dark Worlds Magazine #1 which is still available.
