I WANT


Saturday, July 12, 2008
 
Plus: The end of the Stories, The Lineup has landed, Crimedogs on parade.

I got an email earlier today from Hard Case Crime's mailing list, touting a new series of books set to debut next year - and I'm already salivating. The series is called The Adventures of Gabriel Hunt, and it's an attempt to do for pulp what Hard Case did for hardboiled crime fiction. Each book will be credited to "Gabriel Hunt" and will be written both by Hard Case veterans and other writers, both new and established. To check out a cover image, go to http://www.huntforadventure.com/.

A house-name pulp series? Featuring some of my favorite authors? Done up by the inimitable Hard Case crew? Count me in!

Hardluck Stories calls it a day. Speaking of pulp, publisher Dave Zeltserman has closed up shop at his excellent webzine, Hardluck Stories. And he's going out with a bang - the Pulp issue, featuring well-know pulpophiles such as Bill Crider ("Crossroads") and James Reasoner ("The Red Reef"), and many others, all illustrated by Jean-Pierre Jacquet.

Dave talks about the Hardluck experience here. Goodbye, Hardluck, it's been fun.

The Lineup debuts. Spearheaded by editor Gerald So, the busiest man in crime, a new book of crime-fiction poetry, The Lineup, is now available. Gerald's been blogging about the process of putting everything together for some time now, and he has more backstory over at The Rap Sheet.

The best news: The Lineup will be a series. Not TV, unfortunately, but if you're of a lyrical bent, check the submission guidelines. You can buy The Lineup here.

Crimedogs come to town. If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area tomorrow, be sure to catch Anthony Neil Smith and Victor Gischler tomorrow at the Barnes and Noble on Northwest Highway (across from Northpark Mall) tomorrow at 2pm. I'll be there, armed with a camera, and I promise many EXCLUSIVE photos, some hopefully embarrassing or even incriminating. Watch this space!
