MY LOUSY WORLD: Anatomy of a self-diagnosis

You’ve probably heard the theoretical scenario offered by many a macho boyfriend, beleaguered husband or bitter ex. You know the one: “Lock your dog and your wife in the trunk and see which one is happiest to see you when you let them out.” Now, I would never condone locking either in your trunk, except in rare cases of saving ticket money by sneaking loved ones into a drive-in movie.

Field and Stream scribe blending a love of mysteries, fly fishing

It was during an assignment for Field and Stream magazine a few years back when Survival and Outdoors Skills Editor Keith McCafferty decided to finally write that novel he never quite got around to starting.

Lost football tickets in a game day crowd of 29,000-plus at the University of Wyoming last Saturday?

While they’ve all been entertaining reads, “Hell is Empty,” has resonated with me the most; I’ve always been a sucker for a good fugitive story. With this novel, Ucross resident Craig Johnson takes a time-honored premise and turns it on its ear, giving it a unique feel not typically found in a run-of-the-mill crime thriller.
