Pale by Kathryn Allen (Beneath Ceaseless Skies : Volume 37)

Pale is an interesting tale that takes and utilizes classic Literary Troupes and Archetypes of Westerns and Fiction in general and spins them out in a way that can be enjoyed by both Literary Critics and readers that enjoy Western Fiction. The story unfolds from the view point of a deputy who is spun out time and time again to assist the lawful Marshall in his fight against the Hired Gun and as in true Western Troupe is fated to die so that the Marshall and the Hired Gun can have their final showdown man-to-man.
