Now For Something Different...

Calling all writers… 

Stormgate Press introduces Spurs & Six Shooters. A wild West Anthology set in the pioneer days of the Old West. Many of you grew up watching old westerns on TV, or reading Louis L’Amour, Zane Gray or William W. Johnson (just to name a few), and we are emulating those types of stories. 

For those interested stories for Spurs & Six Shooters should be set between the years 1866 and 1900. They should be between 7,500 and 10,000 words. In your stories the hero always wins. Your hero can be a man or woman of any nationality as long as they are in a wild west setting. 

The stories should be fast paced, placing your protagonist against incalculable odds, facing villains equal to them – the best villains are antagonists who believes they are in the right. Stories should be straight forward western tales, no supernatural or science fiction elements should be included in your stories. 

Deadline for stories is May 1st 2023, for a summer 2023 release. Send your pitches to 

Space will be limited to 7 to 9 authors so send your pitch soon to ensure your spot in the anthology.
