Wyomingites are WWA Spur Award finalists

Lori Van Pelt of Saratoga sends word that she will be participating in a short story panel at the annual Western Writers of America conference June 10-14 in Scottsdale, Ariz. Lori received recognition as a WWA 2008 Spur Award Finalist in the Best Western Short Fiction category for her short story, “The Wild-Eyed Witness,” featuring Wild Bill Hickok, which appeared in the anthology, LOST TRAILS (Pinnacle, 2007), edited by Russell Davis and Martin H. Greenberg.

Lori wasn’t the only Wyomingite to be honored this year by the WWA. John D.
