Imagination and fantasy came early to Leonard Little as he sat at his grandfather’s knees and listened to wonderful tales. He was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. He is a husband, father, grandfather, and son who loves to tell his own stories now.


“A short story that pits a lone gunfighter against the ghosts of the men he's killed.

Will Garth McCants give the Devil his due or will Chance deal him a new hand.

Find out in Brimstone--a dusty southwestern town that teeters on the edge this world and the next.”


This is an imaginative short story that I would love to see expanded, it is very short. The plot was clever and well thought out. I felt like I was on the dusty trail with Garth as he ponders the strange challenge he received by telegram as he travels to the town of Brimstone. If it hadn’t been addressed to Shorty McCants he might have let it go.

This little story put me in mind of a Twilight Zone episode; it is easy to see it play out in your mind with the author’s descriptive prose. I would recommend this to readers who like ghost stories, westerns and soul redemption tales. Mr. Little is definitely a gifted wordsmith and I look forward to more of his stories. I think he will be an Indie author to watch. 

Format/Typo Issues:

I found no significant issues.

Rating: **** Four stars
