A Century Of Great Western Stories ($25.95; Apr.; 384 pp.; 0-312-86986-X): An anthology of 30 western tales from
authors spanning the century, nicely organized by editor Jakes (American Dreams, 1998, etc.), whose introduction poses this
question: "What Happened to the Western?" Fans will find plenty of familiar names here (Louis L’Amour, Zane Grey, Jack
London, Owen Wister), along with Marcia Muller, Loren D. Estleman, and Elmer Kelton to keep things interesting.
