Big Lobo
Author: Marshall McCoy
The most hated outlaw in the territory was Big Lobo. With his pack of ruthless killers, he looted and sacked entire towns at will. Halesburg had been left unprotected by the army. It looked like an easy mark for Lobo and his marauders--but they hadn't reckoned Nevada Jim.

If you like the reading-experience equivalent of watching an episode of a TV western from the late 1950s or early 1960s -- for example, a show like CHEYENNE or THE RIFLEMAN or MAVERICK -- you should try the novels of prolific Australian western writer Leonard Meares, who wrote around 700 novels under a variety of pseudonyms. One series, featuring Big Jim, or Nevada Jim, written under the Marshall McCoy name, is a great action series with well-defined characters that really captures that "TV show episode feeling within a mass market paperback cover." The action is swift, the pacing quick, the writing smooth and flowing. Big Jim is a tough, thoughtful but action-dominated character, whose description reminds me a lot of Cheyenne Bodie, played on TV by Clint Walker. The James Bama cover paintings are great complements to the writing and the well-plotted narratives. Great western entertainment in a small package!
