A Tall Tale Involving the Ghost of Davy Crockett

Evan Lewis writes mysteries and historical fiction, as well as running the blog Davy Crockett's Almanac.  His most recent work is a little something that should appeal to fans of Robert E. Howard's Breckenridge Elkins. 

One of his series characters is Dave Crockett, grandson of a man with a similar name you might have heard of.  It seems Dave is haunted by the ghost of his grandfather, and they don't see eye to eye.  Evan's latest installment is up for free at Beat to a Pulp.  I found the tale to be fun and clever with just the right amount of humor and exaggeration.  It wasn't too serious and was a pleasant diversion from some of the things I've been reading lately.

Check it out.  It's not long, so can read it while waiting in the doctor's office or in line at the DMV.  If you like what you read, Evan will be putting out an ebook with five Dave and Davy stories plus an additional bonus story involving other characters.


  1. I read it. It's great. He's onto something there.

    1. I thought this one would appeal to you. I'll be buying the ebook when it comes out.

    2. Wow. Thanks Keith. And Charles too.
