The western genre and I have a strange relationship. As with anybody who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, vintage westerns were a staple of my childhood, on bookshelves and in pulp magazine spinner racks and played in an endless loop on afternoon TV. Nonetheless, the western is a genre I never quite got. Hence, I have occasionally set myself the challenge of writing a western.
The results can be found below:
Once Lola Laverne was the toast of Europe, singer, dancer and mistress to kings and millionaires. But those days are long over, and now Lola is rotting in a cell in Silver Dollar City, a mining town in the Old West, sentenced to hang for killing the man who tried to rape her. Men have always been Lola’s downfall. But could this really be the end for Lola Laverne? Will she perform her last dance at the end of the hangman’s rope? Or does fate have other ideas for Lola? And will she finally realize the true nature of her desires?
