Interview With a Gunfighter by Neil A. Waring

Four-and-a-half questions, not five, because one is something that had already been asked, is the extent of the interview in this short story. I liked the interview, being short and not too complicated for the reporter. With each question, the old gunfighter relives the moment and takes some time to answer.He goes over in his mind the answer, showing his side and what he thought about at the time the event happened before he speaks.

Each reply requires him to think about it and take his time, and at one of the questions he goes outside and ruminates before answering. With the last question, he responds with a quote from Henry David Thoreau, and the interviewer takes her notes and goes back to the office to finish up.

An enjoyable, well written tale this Interview with a Gunfighter, and I look forward to more stories by Mister Waring, a Wyoming resident and writer of both fiction and non-fiction.
