Hell Hath No Fury by T. L. Wolf from On Dangerous Ground: Stories of Western Noir

On Dangerous Ground Ed Gorman Dave Zeltserman Martin H. Greenberg Cemetery DanceReviewed by Jen Forbus

“Hell Hath No Fury” is a fun story full of shady characters all trying to out smart and double cross each other in an effort to bring in a bounty. It’s the Wild West and there are no holds barred.

The plot itself lacks much in the way of originality but the detail and atmosphere are strong counter parts. Wolf creates a setting that illuminates the isolation of the West and the lawlessness, “God’s own private nowhere.”

The inclusion of dialect and colloquialisms accentuate the atmosphere and authenticity of the story. A dry humor permeates throughout, but may not be appreciated by all.

A quick read in the style of the traditional western.
