My story is entitled JOHNNY’S RAY GUNS. It is inspired by the great Johnny Cash song, “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town.” If you’re a Johnny Cash fan, you’ll see echoes of the story told in his song in my short story. You’ll even see references to Johnny Cash’s life in some of the location names.
The story starts in a backwater, frontier farm, but ends up in a nearby spaceport where my main character learns some important life lessons.
I hope you enjoy the story as much I enjoyed writing it!
