The episode continues immediately after the town calls Bart on his BS. He admits he is leaving because things have gotten pretty dull. Revered Johnson gets emotional with his goodbye. This leads Mongo to also get a little emotional and he accidentally clobbers the guy in front of him. Charlie wishes Bart well and as he slaps five with the Sheriff, Bart tells them all to keep the faith. As Bart rides to the edge of town past the blacksmith shop, we see the Waco Kid resting with a popcorn bucket in his lap. He asks Bart where he's headed. Bart simply says, "Nowhere special." The Waco Kid pushes his hat up and looks off into the West. "Nowhere special. I always wanted to go there." Sheriff Bart invites Jim to come along. Jim puts down his popcorn and gets on his horse.

Our guest today is author J.W. Webb. J.W. Webb is an English writer living in Georgia. Mostly be writes fantasy, though sometimes diverts into even stranger directions. His epic saga titled, The Legends of Ansu, blends the mystic grandeur of J.R.R. Tolkein with the gritty realism of G.R.R. Martin. Webb's characters are three dimensional and flawed; their world a tapestry of vivid color and constant motion. All the books feature beautiful bespoke sketches by the late Tolkien illustrator, Roger Garland.
