Summary :

Edited by: Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg

John D. MacDonald, James M. Cain, Donald E. Westlake, Lawrence Block, Mickey Spillane, and Harry Whittington -- these six masters of pulp fiction at its suspenseful best distinguish this new anthology compiled by the award-winning editors of American Pulp and Pure Pulp. Like its two popular predecessors, Pulp Masters culls its tales -- in this case, five classic "novelettes" and one complete novel -- from the golden age of magazine fiction in the first half of the twentieth century.

All six writers included in Pulp Masters in time emerged as giants in the field of crime fiction, and the stories in this collection demonstrate why. Their voices fresh, their talents raw and original, with titles like "Ordo," "College-Cut Kill," "Stag Party Girl," "The Embezzler," and "Everybody's Watching Me," Westlake, MacDonald, Block, Cain, and Spillane heralded and shaped the crime story as we know it today. So did "The King of the Paperback Original" -- Harrington Whittington -- represented here by the novel based on his compelling pulp short story "So Dead My Love."
