Calamity
Being an Account of Calamity Jane and Her Gunslinging Green Man

Long before Calamity Jane scouted with Custer or “Wild Bill” Hickok, she was a fifteen-year-old girl with a fiery temper. But when violence and tragedy turn young Jane’s world upside down, she finds herself riding with an alien gunslinger—the Green Man—through a landscape of revenge and betrayal.

So, forget what you know of how the West was won. Instead, learn the truth of what happened when a young girl met a longrider she called the Green Man…

Sh/ft
The Grantville Gazette, 82

“One of the finest stories we have ever published. “Sh/ft,” by JD Jordan is a terrific exploration of Hopi myth, Hopi reality, and a young woman trapped between the two. It is a sure nominee for Best of the Gazette 2019 next year, and if enough people like it, a worthy nominee for the Nebulas, Hugos, and Dragon awards.”
— Walt Boyes, editor, The Grantville Gazette
