Robert E. Vardeman
This is the genuine, official, Karl Lassiter web page.
Does Karl Lassiter really exist?
Only in the fecund mind of author Robert
E. Vardeman. Karl Lassiter is one of the western pen names I
use in my writing. A separate science fiction and fantasy page details
my forays into those fields, but it amused me to start with a web page
for someone who does not exist.

Except in the Old West.
Except in the imagination. Except here in cyberspace.
“...it's a thoroughly entertaining formula western, the kind of story that, if it was made into a movie a few decades ago, would have starred the young John Wayne (with Gabby Hayes as Texas Dunn, Lassiter's curmudgeonly but lovable ranch cook). Old-school western fans will enjoy this one from start to finish.”
