AIW Press is proud to announce the western of the 21st century. Nine talented authors seamlessly blend the enormity of the vast open prairie and imposing mountain ranges of the old west with the fresh perspectives of modern technologies and problems—and melds them into a new version of a western.
These stories are set west of the Mississippi, but don’t expect gunslingers and duels at High Noon. These stories are more sophisticated, more subtle, more thought-provoking.

Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.
Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.
Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.
Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.
Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.

Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.
Nine female authors pen western tales that you’ll want to retell around a campfire. These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good.
