RWA is a unique blend of nostalgia and hard-hitting western pulp action from the pen of DONALD F. GLUT (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, BROTHER BLOOD, and TV's TRANSFORMERS) and pulp celebrity LESTER DENT (DOC SAVAGE, THE AVENGER).

The book features the novella "Who Really Was That Masked Man?" — a tall tale about what happens when all of the classic western stars from those thrilling days of yesteryear encounter one another and embark on a six-shooting, whip-cracking adventure. This is the story that fans of western pulp, serials, comics and old time radio have been waiting for years to read!

In addition, the Legendary Lester Dent contributes a never-before-published story "Snare Savvy" featuring Haw Kain, a slow-talkin', but quick-witted cowboy from Montana who runs afoul of some greedy land grabbers. There's also a fast talkin' gal who catches Haw's eye, and makes his job of stopping the crooks all the tougher.

This one-of-a-kind western pulp features many exclusive extras:

A comprehensive article on the great radio, comic and serial western adventure heroes (GENE AUTRY, HOPALONG CASSIDY, ROY ROGERS, SUNSET CARSON et al) that influenced the creation of "Who Really Was That Masked Man?" This article is lavishly illustrated with stills of young Don in his childhood cowboy outfits roaming the range of boyish imagination in Chicago.
A tribute to Jim Harmon, the man to whom this book is dedicated. Jim Harmon was a good friend, author and ardent western radio fan, historian and wrote of many books on the subject including the definitive THE GREAT RADIO HEROES.
A gallery of RARE STILLS featuring iconic western stars and autographed to Don Glut.
A behind-the-scenes peek at "Snare savvy" by noted author and pulp historian Will Murray.
and much more!!!

From the Georgia Writers Association Website:
The Georgia Writers Association recognizes Georgia's authors of excellence by presenting the Georgia Author of the Year Awards.  The GAYA has the distinction of being the oldest literary awards in the Southeastern United States while reflecting the current publishing world. The GAYA honors both independently published authors and those whose books are published by traditional publishing houses. The Awards have grown in prestige and participation since its inception in 1964 by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists. The GAYA changed hands in 1990 to Georgia Writers Association and in 2006 GWA began a strong affiliation with Kennesaw State University's Department of Humanities.  In 2006 over 100 books were nominated for Georgia Author of the Year.  The GAYA covers the traditional categories of Poetry and Fiction, while accommodating the growing Creative Non-Fiction genre. The guidelines are revised each year to parallel the changing literary marketplace.
