Review of "The Sheriff" by Chet Arthur

"The Sheriff" by Chet Arthur appeared in the September/October 2012 issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction.  "A young simpleton with the power to see the future helps the new sheriff in an Old West town rout a gang of outlaws."

I liked this story, but as a western, not as speculative fiction.  The only speculative element is the POV character's ability to predict the future--a weak paranormal element.
