A Coyote Cal Weird Western - Milo James Fowler


El Diablo de Paseo Grande

Sometimes, you don't want to know. . .


El Diablo, cover prop. of Milo James Fowler


At the beginning of the story, Coyote Cal is on the road with his sidekick Yap, a psychic, Donna, and a guide, Manuel.  Coyote has been hired to track down something that's killing the livestock.  It's killing them for a purpose.  A trap is set.

What would you do if you heard strange noises just over the hill, late at night in the middle of an unfamiliar rural place?  Walk towards the noise, or run the other way?

  6. Milo is gracious to let us enjoy his great stories for free, isn't he? He is an inspiration to all of us who sometimes toy with giving up. He has found more outlets for his short stories than anyone I know.

    Thanks, D.G. for being there for a friend, Roland

    1. Fight or flight - most likely flight. Or at least hide.
