Twelve Longmire short stories available for the first time in a single volume; featuring an introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips of A&E's Longmire

Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Award; winning 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 stories; and 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.

These short stories are little gems. Some funny, some wise.

I was hoping for more action, a slow read.

I loved these 12 stories. Having traveled in Wyoming and Montana, the author has a perfect sense of place. I really liked the writing, too. Nothing unnecessary and the characters ring true.
