Two Texas Tales:  Raining Willie & Cranked by Bill Crider

This short e-book collection of two stories is once again evidence of how good a writer Bill Crider is.  The first "Raining Willie" concerns the past history of an engagement ring; Crider traces the ring back to Karla, a good ol' gal who gets mixed up with burglary, bullets, explosions, and meth labs.  The second, "Cranked," a fine example of "geezer noir," combines Karla, rednecks, dope, robbery, more bullets, more explosions, and a geezer.  This one was nominated for an Edgar award after it appeared in the anthology Damn Near Dead.

    Great stuff.  This just one of a number of books Bill has made available for the Kindle.  Check 'em out.
