Publication Order of Anthologies

William W. Johnstone was the last born of four children. His father was a minister and his mother a school teacher. Johnstone was born and raised in Southern Missouri. When he was fifteen he quit school and tried to join the FFC.

He was however kicked out because he was underage. He went and joined the carnival but after some time he quit and resumed his studies. He has worked as a deputy sheriff, an army officer and also as a radio broadcaster.

It is said that the sixteen years that he worked in radio broadcasting is what shaped his passion for storytelling. His inspiration stems from his own life experiences. For instance his hobby was collection of knives and guns. He therefore had a good understanding of the weapons used for fighting in those days. His grandparents also narrated to him about their family life experiences.

Johnstone began writing in 1970 but he was not a full time writer until 1980. This is when his first book “The Devil’s Kiss” was published. From that time to date he has authored over two hundred books most of which have become best-sellers.

Style

Johnstone’s writing focused more on the western adventures. This he captured in a variety of genres that included action, science fiction, horror and suspense. Most of his books are about political and social issues that are tactically woven around a survivalist theme.

He has written numerous novel series such as The Ashes series and the Mountain Man series. Johnstone adopts a rather peculiar writing approach. He makes the story to take a back seat, so that he can deliver his own political view. The writer skill fully transports the reader back into the eighties.

This was a time when wrong was wrong and right was simply right. Truth was truth and there were no gray areas. Perhaps in an attempt to break away from the norm, Johnstone authored two novels under the pseudonym William Mason. His writings exemplify his diversity of talent.

This is evident through the way he could practically talk about issues that are important to the society. Some of his first works include the Out of Ashes and the First Mountain Man.

Out of the Ashes

This is the first book that Johnstone wrote for his Ashes Series. It is set in the post apocalypse America where the Americans are devastated and worried. The situation is horrid as families and loved ones are either killed or displaced.

The streets have also been overrun by thieves and gangsters. It is against this background that the hero of the book Ben Raines comes in. Just like the other survivors, he is looking for his missing family members. The ordinary folks are scared and they do not know how to counter the said aggression. As a result they assemble together and decide to look for a leader.

Since Ben Raines is a rebel mercenary, soldier and patriot, he brings the men together and makes them join the resistance to create a new American future. The revolutionary army led by Raines faces myriads of challenges in their quest to rebuild America.

The hallmark of the struggle is when the revolutionary army clashes with the government forces. The novel is a story of hope, determination and the will to push on in the face of adversity. This is perhaps what informed the writer’s decision to name the book “Out of the Ashes”.

Even though it takes a political twist, the book can be said to be prophetic in a way. Most of the things that the writer reflected on in the novel are being witnessed in the current world today.

The novel is full of intrigues, suspense and romance. It is written in such a way that the reader cannot predict the outcome. The reader keeps on flipping one page after the other, just to get to the end.

The first Mountain Man

This is the first book written by Johnstone in his Mountain Man Series. The novel is about a daring ambitious young man full desire to travel and see the world. He leaves his family behind and sets on his path to pursue his dreams.

On his way he encounters numerous challenges of living in a strange land. He is also waylaid by wicked white and Indian men. All these experiences brings him to the harsh truth that in the frontier, one has to do all that it takes to survive.

The man flees for safety in the Rocky Mountain wilderness. He stays there for a while and masters skills that transform his life. He becomes the Preacher, a man feared by his enemies and adored by his fans in equal measure.

The Preacher is highly skilled and at one point he is even portrayed as the only man with the ability to lead a wagon train full of pilgrims through the Oregon Trail. However, the only through way is through a renegade blood thirsty Indians.

He has to do all that he can to ensure that the wagon does pass through successfully. Johnstone tactically takes the Preacher through numerous challenges in an effort to shed light into the problems faced in these areas. It provides a clear appreciation of who the mountain men are and the tribulations that they had to go through.

The Preacher’s adventure through the Oregon also provides an opportunity to learn a number of interesting facts about the area.

Awards

William W. Johnstone is a celebrated writer who has won numerous awards. He has been voted the best-selling writer by The New York Times and USA Today.

Conclusion

To say that William W. Johnstone is a good writer is definitely an understatement. He is a prolific writer that was well ahead of his time. One would not be too presumptuous to say that his stories were prophetic in a way.

Whether by design or sheer coincidence, his books predicted the political and social climate that exists today. The interesting thing is that even though William is no more, his works still continue to sell. This is indeed proof of his story writing prowess.

    I really enjoy reading Mr. Johnstones westerns. I wish I had found his books when j was a young man. I’m 81 years old and probably won’t live long enough to read all him books. So sad, I sure do enjoy reading them.

    I have a large library of Mr. Johnstone’s and I thought I had read most of what he had written. I found out I was way wrong and I have a lot more reading to do to catch up. Please don’t let outside authors come in and start writing in his name. When that happens, it seems most of the new ones have never read original authors works and get the history all screwed up or they kill off great characters. I miss see new books, but am happy a found a complete list with more reading to do.

    Was there any books written continuing Denny Jensen’s life. Whom does she end of marrying. Brice or Conrad? I’m waiting for the last book in that series to arrive, “Dark night in Big Rock”. I have loved this series couldn’t put my books down. I just want to know what happens with her. With Smoke and Sally. So is there another series that continues with them. Thank you

    avid reader of anything by W W Johnstone. Spend at least 2 hours a week looking on Ebay for his older works. Since retirement I travel a lot and stop at every 2nd hand store that resales books looking for decent copies of his books. Never enjoyed reading till I got into the Ashes series and got hooked.
