Summary :

Edited by: Ed Gorman, Martin H. Greenberg, Bill Pronzini

Pulp magazines like Dime Detective and Crime Busters flourished in America between 1920 and 1950. Their purpose was only to entertain, yet they produced such giants in crime fiction as Robert Bloch, Frederic Brown, John Jakes, Leigh Brackett, and John D. MacDonald, all of whom feature in this new anthology.

So are Ed McBain, Mickey Spillane, Vin Packer, Donald Westlake, Dorothy B. Hughes, Helen Nielsen, David Goodis, Evan Hunter, and two dozen tough-writing others whose stories appeared in the more artful The Saint, Manhunt, Verdict, and Tightrope as well as Ellery Queen's and Alfred Hitchcock's mystery magazines. With their moody, atmospheric plots and psychological depth, the pulp fiction in this volume shaped the modern crime story as we know it today. Pick this anthology of pure pulp up. You won't put it down.
