Twelve Longmire Stories

Description

Twelve Longmire short stories available for the first time in a single volume—featuring an introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips of A&E’s Longmire

Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Award–winning “Old Indian Trick.” This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnson’s bestselling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they can’t buy the stories in book form.

Wait for Signs collects those beloved stories—and one entirely new story, “Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns”—for the very first time in a single volume, regular trade hardcover. With glimpses of Walt’s past from the incident in “Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious “Messenger,” where the majority
of the action takes place in a Port-A-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fan’s shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 25, 2014 – The perfect way to bide your time between the release of a new full-length Walt Longmire mystery and the start of the next season of A&E's Longmire, this story collection featuring the iconic Wyoming sheriff is a must. Johnson (Any Other Name) pens a new Longmire tale every December, and now they're all available in one volume, including a brand new story, "Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns." (Petunia is the name of a prized sheep with an unusual wool pattern resembling her floral namesake.) Several entries delve deeper into Walt's past, especially his relationship with his deceased wife, Martha. In "Slick-Tongued Devil," set six years after Martha's death, Walt encounters a Bible salesman who ignites a flare of grief for the sheriff when he insists that Martha just recently ordered a new Bible. On a lighter note, Walt and the elderly Cheyenne Lonnie Little Bird a series character readers whom will instantly recognize help foil a poorly executed diner robbery in "Old Indian Trick." These brief snippets of Walt Longmire's life underscore his solid position as one of the most memorable characters in crime fiction today. Six-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Excellent

Craig Johnson has a way with Wyoming, a genuine expression of the beauty, serenity, and harsh reality of the high country. This collection of short stories is bursting at the seams with the Cowboy State and Longmire is the perfect guide to take readers through the mountains, across the high prairie, and into Henry's spirit world. Great read!
