About the book
From New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson comes Wait for Signs, twelve Longmire stories available in a single volume and featuring an introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips who plays Henry Standing Bear on Longmire.
Eleven 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 bestselling, award-winning Walt Longmire novels and the hit TV drama series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, Johnson has sent to friends a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the full-length novels.
Wait for Signs collects those beloved short stories—and one story written for this collection, “Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns”. 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 porta-potty, to when Walt plays the Ghost of Christmas Past in A Christmas Carol, Wait for Signs will be a welcomed addition to any Longmire collection and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the sheriff’s world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.
