Blurb

Ain’t No Law in California is a hard hitting post-apocalyptic western, where the bad guys are quick on the draw and the lawmen are even quicker.

Dan Bardwell and his young partner Franklin Curtis allow us to ride along as they traipse across the badlands of the great state of Sacramento in what was once known as California. Decades after a global nuclear war nearly destroys mankind, the two tin star lawmen are tasked with keeping law and order and will chase outlaws through both Hell and high water to get them. Often times they’ll operate in a gray area of the law just to get their man.




A Word from the Author

Author Christopher Davis picture

Ain’t No Law in California, originally started along the line of a traditional western. The story took place soon after the civil war in the fictional Hard Times Virginia. During three complete rewrites of the story, elements of science fiction crept in. Three of the original characters were scrapped and replaced by the five-pointed Sacramento lawman, Dan Bardwell who had been in nearly every one of my western short stories that had been published. Bardwell, coupled with the jive talking Franklin Curtis was a perfect match for the story that came about.

Taking place a hundred years after mankind was set back by a nuclear war; Ain’t No Law in California incorporates elements of post-apocalyptic, science fiction with steampunk. Ride along with the tin-star Sacramento lawmen Dan Bardwell and Franklin Curtis as they track down one outlaw after another.

Chasing Demons by John Hansen

 Chasing Demons is a Western by John Hansen.

Know More

The Army had been Gus O’Grady’s home for thirteen years. Fighting and killing, it was all that he’d ever known as an adult. Day after day, living – if you could call it that, with the threat of kill or be killed. Long hours for little pay under the arbitrary rule of often uncaring officers had come to be the norm. Whiskey had become a way of coping but now it had betrayed him. His once good name and sergeant’s stripes were gone. There wasn’t much reason to stay but, deserting? Others had done it. Still, would it be any better in the civilian world? Gus was about to find out.




A Word from the Author

author-john-hansen-picture2I have, since I was a little kid, had a strong interest in the history of the West, particularly the Army. Life for an enlisted man during the nineteenth century was often harsh. Poor food, low pay, loneliness, danger, and strict rule were about all that he had to look forward to. The disparity in living conditions between officers and enlisted men was dramatic. Compared to the Spartan accommodations for enlisted men, officers lived a life of luxury on post. As a consequence, desertion was common and rates as high as twenty to thirty percent were reported. It was from these ranks of deserters that I chose to create my main protagonist in CHASING DEMONS, Gus O’Grady. The accounts of how hard some of these men were pushed, especially by officers like George Custer, compelled me to believe that Gus O’Grady could be a character that the reader would empathize with. In turn, my objective in writing has always been to make my characters believable, with real problems and plausible solutions. I want my reader to say: “Heck, a hundred and forty years ago that could’ve been me.” I believe it makes the events in CHASING DEMONS come to life for the reader if he can visualize himself as Gus. So, I’m hoping the reader of, CHASING DEMONS, will find a quiet place and let his mind go to the mountains along the Arizona-New Mexico border. I think you’ll like it there.
