I picked up Buffalo Soldier because of an interview with Marcus Broaddus that I heard on the "Writing Excuses" podcast. His description of the story -- a black Jamaican man travels with a kid across the wild west in an alternate history -- really captivated me. It's short -- a novella -- and quick. I enjoyed it immensely. I hope Broaddus continues to write more in this world.
