Red Shuttleworth is at work on RUMORS AND BORDERS

Red Shuttleworth's writing table
with the original manuscript for Rumors and Borders

My Rumors and Borders, a suite of plays set in the American West, will be published as a paperback (late 2017) by Kris Wetherholt's Humanitas Media Publishing.

Rumors and Borders collects eight short plays written about a quarter of a century ago and produced later at State University of New York at Fredonia; The Sun Valley Festival of New Western Drama; and at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The line up of plays:
Days of Daring

The Only Waco Delaney

Rooster and Ponytail

More Honky Tonk Scars

Rangeland's Gone

This is Dead Level

Farewell the Catastrophe Works

The Genuine Love of the Kid's Life

Tom Loughlin, Jason Ostrowski, and Melissa K. Miller
in the SUNY-Fredonia production of The Only Waco Delaney
(March 6, 1995)

Converting the plays from a format appropriate for staging the plays to publication format, going from a copy typed on a Hermes 3000 manual typewriter to formatting toward book publication is a slow process.... especially since I keep making small revisions.
