Penguin Books 10/27/2015. New paperback. Ten 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 Johnsonís bestselling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Waltís life that doesnít appear in the novels. Wait for Signs collects those beloved stories -- and one entirely new story, 'Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns' -- for the very first time in a single volume.
