Praise for the Caleb York Westerns

"A straight-ahead, story-driven Western about captives held by bad men in a ghost town called Hell Junction. It is a straight-shooting, two-fisted Western that will satisfy fans of the genre while paying homage to the Spillane legacy."
--True West on Last Stage to Hell Junction

"Max Allan Collins is the closest thing we have to a 21st Century Mickey Spillane."
--This Week

"Collins does a fine job of creating a realistic environment and some pretty darned interesting characters."
--Booklist on The Bloody Spur

"Well-crafted ...great fun."
--Publishers Weekly on The Bloody Spur

"The authors have created a protagonist larger than life--he usually comes through each conflict without a scratch--who delivers all the cheeky dialogue and comebacks...This book will not disappoint."
--Library Journal on The Legend of Caleb York

"Using characters created by Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins pays tribute to the mythic West and casts an informed eye on the end of an era in The Bloody Spur."
--True West

"There are plenty of twists and turns here, as York takes advantage of a break here, some luck there and an unexpected ally who may well figure in potential future installments. In the meantime, those delving into this fine work quickly find that there is no good place to stop reading short of the last page. What higher praise is there for a book than that?"
--Bookreporter on Last Stage to Hell Junction

"As always, Collins' prose is just as smooth and fast-flowing as can be, and his characters are interesting, including the villains...If you're looking for good, solid traditional Westerns with a hardboiled edge, I highly recommend Last Stage to Hell Junction and the other Caleb York novels."
--James Reasoner, Rough Edges blog
