The book I'm half way through and I simply can't put down is Brian Kilmeade "Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates"....Amazing how it mimics what is currently happening with Muslims in north Africa......I always thought TJ was the greatest president of all time, but now I'm sure.....Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, Barbary Pirates, Creation of a Navy, Solidification of the Marines........Amazing amount of work in one lifetime!

The movie is an Amazon original called "EDGE".......Lots of 1860 Henry conversation and scenes, lots of 186o Colt stuff......Way too much blood and nasty sex......but a real comic book movie. I believe it will become a series. Free on Amazon Prime.

I've yet to see the Edge movie, but I read many of the books in the series as a teenager. The author (George Gilman) also wrote a series called Jubal Cade, which I found on the whole to be slightly less violent.

The situation regarding radical Islamic terrorists (NOT to be confused with rational, law-abiding Muslims) does have many parallels with the Barbary Pirates. Lack of aggressive actions then and now certainly result in prolonged difficulties.  I'd like to send a copy of the book to our leaders, including the President and Sec'y of State.  I doubt they'd find time to read it, however...  Sad

Your posts intrigued me. I am/was an avid reader of Jess Williams and his magnificent holster. Jess incurred a significant number of gunfights that were repetitive in nature but there ain't too many ways you can work a fast draw gunfight. Adding the Sharps was a good idea and was used and described pretty good.
Edge, the novel. Gilman writes well and the words and phrases usually keeps my interest. There were very few places in the first book that caused me to lose contact with my surroundings (no TV, ice cold Dickel).  Gilman uses the bullet, knife, and razor wounds as if they are the center piece of his novel. His gratuitous use or description of the wounds abound in blood and gore. After the third body was mutilated, this reader knew he was in for the long haul.
Tonight, I think I will read about Jubal Cade.
