A trio of stories from the ever-popular Max Brand.
In "Speedy-Deputy", Speedy is a man whose last name is known to no one. He does not use a gun but he is still considered the deadliest of men. He is regarded as a loafer and a drifter until he applies for the job of deputy sheriff – a revolving position referred to as a “seven day” job because no one has lasted in the role beyond a week.
The adventures of Max Brand’s popular character, Sleeper, continue in "Satan’s Gun Rider". Sleeper takes on a daunting task and his only ally is his beloved horse, Careless, who is immediately stolen.
John Duff in "Jokers Extra Wild" is called “Daisie” around the logging camps – but don’t be fooled, he is more than a match for any of the loggers in combat of any kind. But is he a match for the mysterious ring he inherits, which brings constant trouble?
