Jerome Bixby (1923-1998) was a famous short story writer. Many of his stories were turned into T.V. shows and movies. He wrote primarily in two genres: western and science fiction. He was most famous for the 1957 story “It’s A Good Life” which became a 1961 episode of The Twilight Zone television show. This story “The Draw” is in public domain. I hope to see more of his work appear again as publishers take advantage of the works going into the public domain.

For a short story, a book it isn't, it's right up there with Harte & Clemens. I thank you for a good read. FDJ

I'm going to read more of this writers works, may I find them!
With some little effort, his work will stand equal to L'Amour and even Grey.
Hopefully there is more good stories, like this one in novel length form.
Looking forward to finding them. I won't hesitate a moment, nor should you.
