Twelve Longmire short stories available for the first time in a single volumefeaturing an introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips of A&E’s Longmire
Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Awardwinning Old Indian Trick.” This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnson’s bestselling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they can’t buy the stories in book form.
Wait for Signs collects those beloved storiesand one entirely new story, Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns”for the very first time in a single volume, regular trade hardcover. With glimpses of Walt’s past from the incident in Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious Messenger,” where the majority
of the action takes place in a Port-A-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fan’s shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.
