Dr. Guy Standard’s fiction explores the full range of the human condition. Much of his work is set in a fictional southern Colorado town called Pelón.

Blue Drifter: This novella takes place in Pelón. It tells of the life and death of one Billy (“Shakespeare”) Bocho Borrego who could’ve been a contender, but didn’t get out of Pelón in time. Blue Drifter is available in a paperback edition at the Bookshop Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz, California.
