The episode opens with Hedley Lamarr remarking about the stuntwork of Douglas Fairbanks, who had such small feet. He falls over and into what appears to be fresh concrete. The Waco Kid notes Bart shot the bad guy. They look down and see Hedley has written his name in the fresh concrete and added a dollar sign. They both decide to go into the theater to check out the rest of the movie. We immediately shift back to the town of Rock Ridge, circa 1874. Howard Johnson implores Sheriff Bart to stay. Bart says his work there is done and he's needed elsewhere. The whole town then call him on his BS.

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.
