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.
