The Black Lizard Big Book of Pulps by Otto Penzler Pdf

The biggest, the boldest, the most comprehensive collection of Pulp writing ever assembled. Weighing in at over a thousand pages, containing over forty-seven stories and two novels, this book is big baby, bigger and more powerful than a freight train—a bullet couldn’t pass through it. Here are the best stories and every major writer who ever appeared in celebrated Pulps like Black Mask, Dime Detective, Detective Fiction Weekly, and more. These are the classic tales that created the genre and gave birth to hard-hitting detectives who smoke criminals like packs of cigarettes; sultry dames whose looks are as lethal as a dagger to the chest; and gin-soaked hideouts where conversations are just preludes to murder. This is crime fiction at its gritty best. Including: • Three stories by Raymond Chandler, Cornell Woolrich, Erle Stanley Gardner, and Dashiell Hammett. • Complete novels from Carroll John Daly, the man who invented the hard-boiled detective, and Fredrick Nebel, one of the masters of the form. • A never before published Dashiell Hammett story. • Every other major pulp writer of the time, including Paul Cain, Steve Fisher, James M. Cain, Horace McCoy, and many many more of whom you’ve probably never heard. • Three deadly sections–The Crimefighters, The Villains, and Dames–with three unstoppable introductions by Harlan Coben, Harlan Ellison, and Laura Lippman Featuring: • Plenty of reasons for murder, all of them good. • A kid so smart–he’ll die of it. • A soft-hearted loan shark’s legman learning–the hard way–never to buy a strange blonde a hamburger. • The uncanny “Moon Man” and his mad-money victims.

The Frame-Up by Meghan Scott Molin Pdf

"MG Martin lives and breathes geek culture. She even works as a writer for the comic book company she idolized as a kid. But despite her love of hooded vigilantes, MG prefers her comics stay on the page. But when someone in LA starts recreating crime scenes from her favorite comic book, MG is the LAPD's best--and only--lead. She recognizes the golden arrow left at the scene as the calling card of her favorite comic book hero. The thing is...superheroes aren't real. Are they? When too-handsome-for-his-own-good Detective Kildaire asks for her comic book expertise, MG is more than up for the adventure. Unfortunately, MG has a teeny little tendency to not follow rules. And her off-the-books sleuthing may land her in a world of trouble. Because for every superhero, there is a supervillain. And the villain of her story may be closer than she thinks..."--Amazon.

A local Arts Festival is being held to honour a cultural exchange visit from representatives of Borken - Whitstable's Twin Town in Germany. Yet very soon, personality clashes surface among the participants; local politicians try to use the festival for their own ends while others jostle for improved billing on the festival programme. Tempers flare, old feuds re-surface and on the eve of the first event, a cryptic message - Murder Fest - is received by the local police. Before DCI Mike McGuire has a chance to investigate, the festival commences with an unscheduled event when a celebrated author is found brutally murdered . . .

I love these books!' Jane Wenham-Jones, author of Mum in the Middle 'While Oxford had Morse, Whitstable, famous for its oysters, has Pearl' Daily Mail 'Come to Whitstable without actually coming to Whitstable.

The Golden Eagle Mystery by Ellery Queen Pdf

In a seaside town, Djuna discovers theft, secrets—and murder When Djuna goes to spend the summer with troubled Aunt Patty, he passes the time swimming, eating steamed clams, and catching lobsters out in the bay. But when seemingly worthless trinkets start disappearing from Aunt Patty’s house, Djuna’s sleuthing instincts spring into action, and he soon discovers something far more frightening than petty theft. Then Aunt Patty’s fishing boat disappears from the docks. When she and Djuna discover it set adrift along the rocky coast, Djuna tries to save the ship, but it has been smashed to bits by the waves. Djuna is certain that what happened to the Patagonia was no accident. The old ship was murdered—and he will find out who did it. Ellery Queen is one of the world’s finest detectives, but his adventures are nothing compared to the Ellery Queen Jr. Mystery Stories. Join Queen’s apprentice, Djuna, and his trusty Scottie, Champ, on adventures filled with danger, suspense, and thrills. The Golden Eagle Mystery is the second book in the Ellery Queen Jr. Mystery Stories, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
