Wes Rand is the bestselling author of the Evil Stryker series (Left to Die, Cross Cut, and Payback is Hell). Rand was inspired by author Ayn Rand combined with his passion for western novels and the desire to create something gritty and real, the idea for the Evil Stryker series was born. His books follow Stryker on the run from a murder he did commit and living by his own code of conduct, killing all who gets in his way. Based on a political world, Rand writes about a mean antihero set in the historical west. But these are anything but your grandfather’s westerns.

Wes Rand was an Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army during the 1960’s. He pays alimony. He doesn’t like to golf but lives on a golf course. He has been bucked off a horse and two w

These are intriguing journeys through a highly intelligent and complex mind. Each story leaves the reader feeling as if he’s been punched, and not knowing why. You’ll be left thinking about them for

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Rate this book
Clear rating
Actually a near tie with For Whom The Bell Tolls, I read them both in high school. Hemingway dug
deep into a man’s mind and hauled the core out in stark, hard-hitting prose. I’m a man. He wrote like a man. I like that. I think women like it too.

Far, Far the Mountain Peak by John Masters

Clear rating
What I liked about this book was the story of a man, ridiculed and scorned because of his indomitable
will to win, to achieve. Gerry, always wants to win. People don’t like him but in the end they need him.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

I once read that, second only to the Bible, "Atlas Shrugged" has affected more people’s lives than any other book. It’s 1,300 pages long and I’ve read it 3 times. I felt refreshed and saddened
each time I finished it. The writing glorifies individual

Wes Rand I appreciate my growing fan base. I used to write only for myself, now I write for my readers to enjoy as well. If I can get a scene right, I try to imagine its impact on the reader. Feedback, especially positive feedback makes it all worthwhile. Negative feedback is good too, at least they read the story! Writers are constantly learning.
