“Son of a bitch!” Adam was grinning from ear to ear as the barkeep reached
across to grab the front of his shirt. When he spotted the ax handle the barkeep
had picked up from wherever it had been stashed, he started to laugh. “Oh, you
think this is funny?” the barkeep asked. “Most definitely.” “How about this?” The
barkeep's free hand snapped forward to knock the ax handle against the side of
Adam's head. It wasn't a powerful blow, but was enough to take the wind from
Adam's sails.

The barkeep was frowning. “You're not from around here,” he said. “Not originally
,” said Oscar, “no.” The barkeepnodded toward Henry, whose face was blank. “
He's like a what? A nurse, kind of?” “Something like,yes. He studiedwithHegel in
Germany.” The barkeep scratchedat hisjaw. “Well, shoot, mister.” He shifted his
glance, and then shifted hisweight fromone footto theother. Onceagain he wiped

“Consider it a gift.” The young man picked up the coin and again offered it to the
barkeep. His hand was small and clean. It practically shone in the dim light of the
bar. “No good deed goes unrewarded, right?” “No good deed goes unpunished.
That's the saying.” “You don't believe that.” The young man held out the coin,
insistent. “We've got fish,” the barkeep mumbled. He snatched the coin and
tucked it into the pouch at his hip. “Bread from yesterday, too. It's probably stale.” “
That'll do.

It hit the barkeep on the shoulder and bounced off. The barkeep grinned. His
teeth were uneven and brown, crumbled nuggets of bone. The young prostitute
grabbed Hammersmith from behind and he shrugged her off, but he was
distracted long enough that he almost missed seeing the barkeep's club as it
whistled toward him. He ducked and the club sailed over his head, thunking into
the stool behind him. One of the spikes on the big man's club stuck in the wooden
seat, and the ...

“Yes. I. found. him. He's. dead.” The barkeep exhaled through his teeth. He set
two glasses on the bar and poured whiskey for both of them. Nate emptied the
glass and gestured to the rifle. “Would you be willing to trade this for that gold
coin? I don't know how much the coin is worth, but this gun is easily worth a
thousand dollars.

'Can I help you?' the barkeep asked, his eyes wandering over the heavily armed
newcomer. Tabor looked at the man, smiled. 'Little too early for me,' he said. '
Then what you come in here for?' The barkeep worried the side of his mouth with
his tongue and then spat a lump of gristle, left over from his last meal, onto the
counter. Again Tabor smiled, said, 'For the company I guess.' The barkeep
frowned, produced a half smoked cigar from behind one ear and placed it
between his teeth.

'We don't have many sanddancers calling in this way,' the barkeep observed as
he viewed the team's kaftans. 'Are you a fanclub party bound for the Wilson,
Kepple and Betty convention in Huddersfield?' 'It's a football team,' said Jim. '
Brentford United.' 'The Brentford United?' The barkeep eyed the team. 'By the
Gods, 'tis true. And you, yourself, my son has your picture on his wall and has
taken to the wearing of the green tweeds. You're Bertie.' 'Jim,' said Jim. 'The
name's Jim.' 'Well ...

said the barkeep, whose name was Griscom. “I get the Sheriff in here for the first
time ever, and he gets murdered. This will ruin my business.” “No it won't,” said
the greyhaired man with the long grey beard, who was called Mendel. “People
will be coming here to see the place where the Sheriff of Piedmont was killed. If
you're lucky, there will be a bloodstain on the floor.” “Maybe we could roll him
over on his belly,” said the barkeep. “Then he'd be sure to leave a stain.” He
