The Arsène Lupin Podcast is coming out next week. Wednesdays are about to get even better. Keep an ear open for our new show! 

And now for something completely different. 

This week we’re beginning a 12-part series of the Zane Grey classic: Riders of the Purple Sage. 

Riders of the Purple Sage is consistently short-listed as one of the best westerns of all time. Zane Grey was instrumental in defining the western novel, and Purple Sage was his best-selling book.

And now, Riders of the Purple Sage, part 1 of 12, by Zane Gre
