Six Sentence Sunday (Eden Springs) 2
Presenting my weekly offering to Six Sentence Sunday. Here are few more lines from my western novella Eden Springs, a story of violence, sex, and astronomy in the old west. Coming soonish from Dreamspinner Press. (I just got the galley proofs.)
Here Aaron has told Professor Jonah Mann that after a week he still hadn’t caught all the bad men terrorizing the town.
“Mr. Byrne,” Jonah’s voice became clipped again. “I have a student who has not spoken a word in three weeks, and I’ve had to bury another two. I want to see these men disemboweled, drawn, quartered, and then I want the opportunity to get creative.”
Aaron was sure Jonah wasn’t exaggerating in the slightest. “Will you settle for a hanging?”
“I suppose I will have to.”
