Ben Dauber had much to learn about being in the newspaper business. And about being a man.
He found himself in a place and time some would call Heaven—others Hell—to learn both.
Desert Sun, Red Blood by E. W. Farnsworth is a collection of tales during the time of the Indian wars in the lawless Arizona Territory. Ben Dauber found himself among a rough-and-tumble group of renegade Apaches, range settlers, saloon girls, professional gamblers, seedy lawmen, a hanging judge, gunslingers, desperate thieves and murders, con men, land-grabbing ranchers, ruthless claim jumpers, steely-eyed railroad operatives, dashing cavalry officers and spirited frontier women who knew how to ride, track, and use weapons as well as men. While Dauber gradually traces the secret activities of moneyed railroad interests in the Territory, he learns what it takes to live—and die—like a man from all around him, including his mentor Judge Richard Hastings, the renegade Apache Durang, and a young frontier girl in buckskin and lace known as Nance, the Bottle Blonde of Albuquerque, the only love of Kit Carson, a dandy and gambler.

A Consulting Detective with the Brilliance of Holmes…and An Insanity All His Own! D. L. Champion’s twisted, yet genius investigator, Inspector Allhoff makes a dark, exciting return in DEAD CAT BOUNCE, an all new novel by E. W. Farnsworth. Originally appearing in Dime Detective Magazine in the 1930s and 40s, Allhoff was a detective like no other. Mangled and left without legs after leading a failed police raid, Allhoff found himself an unofficial consultant to the New York Police Department. Kept in a rundown tenement across from headquarters, Allhoff is assisted by two men, both of which he tortures with his aggressive nature and abrasive words. One, the rookie responsible for bungling the raid which left the great detective an invalid and the other, a career cop going through hell just to get to his retirement. Three men who stew in a cesspool of hate, self doubt, and anger, and yet, led by Allhoff, they solve the strangest cases the NYPD has ever faced! In DEAD CAT BOUNCE, wealthy collectors of weapons are dying in locked rooms and the NYPD cannot stop the rash of murders. That means that Inspector Allhoff and his assistants are on the case. But can they stop the phantomlike killer before more noted citizens die or is this the case that will put an end to their careers? And will Allhoff’s men rise to meet the challenge of the mystery while being beaten by his acerbic attitude and caustic attacks or will they simply leave the broken man to twist in the proverbial wind?

Ritchie Walgreen, a former Special Forces operative turned CIA assassin and son of a former CIA assassin, inherits from his slain father a matchless Japanese katana sword. Wielding the katana as if it were a magic wand, Walgreen hews a reputation as "Al Katana," a ruthless enforcer against ISIS and other evil powers in the world, from Africa to the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Japan. Assisted by a succession of beautiful and brainy women in the intelligence business, Walgreen eludes hit teams and traps set by his nemesis, the vengeful Sheila McCaw, Deputy Director of the CIA, the Director of the Israeli Mossad, and other traditional intelligence agencies. Al Katana's unmistakable "signature" is that of decapitated victims, with their severed heads tucked between their legs. As the carnage of his blade grows and heads fall, the international press and entertainment industries make the insuperable, almost god-like Al Katana a global superhero through articles, books, films and even action figures. His imitators help spread the legend while Walgreen trains his own army of katana-brandishing clones. The World Has a New Hero to Fear. AL KATANA: VOLUME ONE by E. W. Farnsworth. From Pro Se Productions.
E. W. Farnsworth’s Al Katana, Volume I, appeared from Pro Se Productions in 2017 debuting a new kind of superhero, one striking fear into the hearts of the most hardened terrorists and miscreants. The second volume continues Ritchie Walgreen’s saga as he forges relationships and builds martial arts studios on four continents as fronts for the work he does, along with his various proteges. Relentlessly pursued by numerous, jealous national intelligence agencies—most notably the American CIA and Israeli Mossad, the man known in urban legend as Al Katana keeps one step ahead of his adversaries while performing his self-given mission to rid the world of heinous crime and corruption. In a bloody wake of decapitations, Al Katana expands his cadre of admiring ace investigative reporters as well as capitalists looking to make big bucks through selling Al Katana action figures, complete with their Japanese katana swords. In the press and online the hero’s message grows, the facts and disinformation blending to make Al Katana seem superhuman. Whether legend or psychotic avenger, Al Katana believes his methods are genuinely effective in a world that has lost its soul. Yet, even though he gathers followers daily, others believe he is a monster and intend to end his reign of justified terror. Al Katana Volume II by E. W. Farnsworth. From Pro Se Productions.
