Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling, 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.

WE HAVE TO SAVE THIS OWL

THE HONEY WAGON
There is not one single bad story in the collection. Some are better than others, but all are a pleasure to listen to. The main character lost his wife some years back and as someone who has been married over 38 years and who would not know what to do if I lost my best half, I found myself tearing up at times. It is nice to listen to stories that older persons can enjoy. All ages can enjoy, but I believe those that have lived life longer, will get more out of them. Recently I read Centennial by James Michener and this is a great modern companion piece.

George Guidall is a national treasure.

Wonderful - as are all Craig Johnson's books!!

Craig Johnson's characters all have such interesting qualities that make you want to know more and more about each one. This collection of short stories gives the reader extra tidbits about Walt, Vic, Henry, Dog and others. And George Guidall gives voice to each character that brings a visual picture and further creates interesting people that you want to be friends with. I only wish Craig Johnson would write faster!! And that there could be more writers who could create characters and stories that are so ordinary yet so much beyond that.
