Lauran Paine was a noteworthy novelist from the United States, who was famous for writing science fiction, mystery, romance, and western novels. His writing career is comprised of more than thousands of books and short stories. Author Lauran has also written many nonfiction books based on the subjects of witchcraft, military history, Old West, and a few other subjects as well. Throughout his literary career, author Lauran was in contact with numerous publishers. And many of them had the condition that they will accept limited number of novels for publication under one author’s name. So, author Lauran had to adopt several dozen pen names in order to get all his books published. Some of the most popular pen names of author Lauran include Dennis Archer, Will Benton, Mark Carrel, John Armour, Concho Bradley, A.A. Andrews, Carter Ashby, Frank Bosworth, James Gelnn, Clint O’Conner, Harry Beck, Jim Slaughter, Claude Cassady, Will Houston, Buck Standish, Clint Custer, Cliff Ketchum, Troy Howard, and several others. A large number of Lauran’s books have been released under the publishing of London’s Robert Hale.

Many of his earlier books were published and distributed only in the United Kingdom. It is only recently that Lauran’s books have started appearing in the US, mostly in the editions of large prints. Author Lauran was born as Lawrence Kerfman Duby Jr in Duluth, Minnesota, United States on February 25, 1916. He had acquired the name of Lauran Bosworth Paine after a few years. His death occurred in California December 01, 2001. For some time in his career, author Lauran served as an apprentice Western writer. This was mainly during the time he was involved in rodeos, livestock trade, motion pictures, etc. In motion pictures, author Lauran was taken in as an extra due to his expertise in horsemanship. Author Lauran lived in Fort Jones, California for a major part of his life. Among all the novels penned by him, the most popular ones include The Open Range Men, Lockwood, Halfmoon Ranch, Gathering Storm, The Running Iron, Tears of Heart, White Bird, Cache Canon, Law Man, Gunman, etc. The novels, Law Man and Open Range Men, were adapted into Hollywood movies under the titles of The Quiet Gun and Open Range respectively. Many of the books of author Lauran were released posthumously.

A very interesting book written by author Lauran Paine is entitled ‘Gunman’. It was released by the Leisure Books publication in the year 2009, after its first release in 2006. The primary characters mentioned in this novel include buck Carrell, Coke Bright, Ray Kelly, and several others. Author Lauran has done the setting of the plot in Broken Bow, Taos Man, Yuma, Welton, etc. At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that war has begun in Broken Bow. Buck Carrell lives his life happily after getting the possession of a small ranch. His peaceful and happy life gets interrupted suddenly when a mysterious woman arrives at this door and collapses. After helping her gain consciousness, Buck Carrell asks her how did she come in such a situation? The woman answers by saying that she a nearby stage was held up and she was on it at that time. She urges Buck to investigate to which he agrees. After his return from the initial investigation, Buck Carrell finds that the woman has disappeared.

Coke Bright has been living his life as a drifter in Taos Man. He comes across a wagon train moving towards far West. As the hostile Apaches pose as a great threat to the wagon’s safety, Coke Bright decides to serve as its guide. Soon, he realizes that the major danger to his life is from the ones inside the wagon rather than those outside it. Another part of this book is in the form of Ray Kelly’s story. Five years ago, he was charged with stealing cattle and was sent to the Yuma Prison. Now, he has returned back to his hometown and is determined to take vengeance. Ray Kelly is not welcomed in Welton as no one likes him or wants him to live with them. Even the town’s sheriff wants him gone. But, Ray Kelly thinks that he has lived long enough with the bitter and lonely dream of having vengeance to get dissuaded. He does not pay any heed to the hatred shown by others and moves ahead with his mission. He knows he is not going to stop at any cost and only a bullet to his head can bring a halt to his progress. The book was highly appreciated for its rich content and intriguing characters. The readers seemed to like the interesting mixture of the stories of the three main characters and their surprising connection that is revealed at the climax. Numerous critics praised the book and also hailed author Lauran for his dedicated efforts.

Another exciting novel penned by Lauran is called ‘Promise of Revenge’. This novel is written as two interconnected short stories. The important characters depicted by Lauran include Ladd Buckner and Tom Barker. The plot settings take place in Arizona and a small town called Beatty. At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that Ladd Buckner arrives as a stranger in one of Arizona Territory’s small towns. He buys a local harness & saddle shop and begins his small business. Soon, the people of the town recognize Ladd Buckner’s stitching work as a typical one known to them very well and call the town’s marshal to investigate. But, before the marshal can let his findings out in the open, he gets killed while trying to prevent a bank robbery cross firing. A letter is discovered from the marshal’s pocket that reveals that Ladd Buckner has served a term for his involvement in a past bank robbery and has now been released.

Ladd Buckner feels sad at the marshal’s killing. He decides to find the robbers and make them pay for killing the marshal. In the next tale, Tom Barker is seen returning back to his tiny cow town named Beatty. Around 15 years ago, Tom’s mother had left him alone and had run away with her lover in the same town. After his mother had gone, Tom Barker was repeatedly abused by his father, who worked as a freighter. Even the authorities did not intervene at his miserable condition. Now, Tom Barker is all grown up, has become wealthy, and has arrived in his hometown again. He has the intention of settling the score with the cow town for rejecting him. Tom Barker is equipped with a gun, but he knows he will have to make use of his wealth and his wit to outsmart and defeat the wealthy locals. He wishes to prove them wrong in thinking that he would never come back and would never achieve anything big in life.
