Creative Mythographers On the Move

John Allen Small's Days Gone By: Legends and Tales of Sipokni West

"This collection of short stories was inspired by the establishment of an Old West-themed attraction in southern Oklahoma known as Sipokni West, which has doubled as an actual set for several Western film and television productions. These stories were conceived as a sort of spin-off of that project, as a means of presenting some of the fictional community's memorable events and colorful characters as if they were a part of actual history. Some of the stories were originally published in our local newspaper, the Johnston County Capital-Democrat; others were printed individually in slim volumes and sold as souvenirs to visitors at Sipokni West, while several others have never before been published in any form. This collection marks the first time all the Sipokni West stories written to date have appeared together in a single volume."

This neat little collection also contains a few tales with some familiar faces, of the Old West, and perhaps a crossover or three. Check it out, why don't you?
