The Gunslinger
Black Ink Fiction




Description
Stories about the ordinary citizens of the old west and their interactions with the gunslingers of legend. You can use any of the big names in your story (Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Jesse James, Wild Bill, etc.), but they should be secondary characters, with your MC as an ordinary, unknown person. Think of these as the stories that formed the legend and gave these fellas their clout.


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
