THE SUDDEN GUN
Richard “Dick” House was a mentor and dear friend from the time I met him in the Summer of 1984.
In addition to being a helluva writer and storyteller, he took a neophyte writer such as myself under his wing and taught me an appreciation for living and life that my-then 23 year old eyes hadn’t really seen before.
His kindness was without boundaries and so I was delighted when his books really started taking off. THE SUDDEN GUN is representative of Dick’s best work. I just wish he was still with us so that I could tell him one more time how much he meant to me. At least his work lives on in print now. No man could ask for a better epitaph.
