A brand-new collection from Norman Partridge! This volume gathers several previously uncollected stories together with two new stories written for this collection.

- During the Great Depression, outlaw rivals of Bonnie and Clyde battle for their lives in a bullet-riddled cornfield that holds the secret of love and death
