The Life & Times of Bob Randisi

Bullets and Lies
“Everybody seems to be looking for the next Louis L’Amour. 
To me, they need look no further than Randisi.”
—Jake Foster, author of Three Rode South

“[Randisi] doesn’t waste a phrase or plot turn…his prose 
is supple and never flashy.” —Publishers Weekly

“The Western genre needs more writers like Randisi, 
an original voice who’s still going strong.”—Bookgasm 

“Each of Randisi’s novels is better than its 
entertaining predecessor.”—Booklist

Ed here: By the time I  finish typing this sentence Bob Randisi will
doubtless finish a novel that will put him very close to the five hundred 
mark. Yes, five hundred novels written and published in virtually 
Speaking Volumes LLC lowered the prices of the...every genre though his main concentration has been crime and western.

Amazing as the number is what's much more startling is how consistently
good and sometimes GREAT his work is. The Gunsmith series, one of the
oldest and most revered of western series, would tucker most writers out
after book thirty or so. Not Bob. The series, written as by J.R. Roberts, 
has just notched number three hundred and sixty-eight. 

And the hooks are just as strong as the writing. In the new Bullets And Lies, 
Talbot Roper helps prove that a man he knows, a man who 
stands accused of lying about his record in the Civil War, is telling the truth.
Never thought of that before. I guess all wars produce men who lie about 
their courage and honor.

Fast-paced and action-packed, rich in humanity and lore, this is a fine 
sample of Bob's work. If you like realistic adventure, you'll want this book.

There's only two ways to describe Mr. Randisi's literary output: dedication and discipline. I have read a few of the Gunsmith series and enjoyed both his stories and writing style though I haven't read his crime-fiction yet. Assuming he started writing in the early 1970s, Mr. Randisi would have written an average of 10-12 novels a year. So 500 novels over some 40 years is mindblowing. I hope I got my math right.
