Re: Hard Case Crime, Part 4

^ Awesome. Amazes me how many unpublished stories they're able to unearth. Cool cover art to boot. I assume this will be given the hardcover treatment.

Re: Hard Case Crime, Part 4

A couple new releases for later this year.

October



THERE’S NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS
THAN A LOADED MAGAZINE

Memphis, 1975. "Raunchy" doesn’t begin to describe Max Climer’s magazine, Climax, or his all-hours strip club, or his planned video empire. Evangelists, feminists, and local watchdog groups all want him out of business. But someone wants more than that, and has hired a killer to end Max’s career permanently. Only another hit man—the ruthless professional known as Quarry, star of the acclaimed series on Cinemax—can keep Climer from becoming a casualty in the Sexual Revolution.

The longest-running series from Max Allan Collins, author of ROAD TO PERDITION, the Quarry novels tell the story of an assassin with an unlikely taste for justice. Once a Marine sniper, Quarry found a new home stateside with a group of contract killers. But some men aren’t made for taking orders…
  • First publication ever!
  • A new Quarry novel set in the time of the hit Cinemax series
  • Features a new cover painting by the legendary Robert McGinnis
-------------------------
November



COOL AND LAM RETURN—
IN THE CASE OF A LIFETIME

Erle Stanley Gardner was not just the creator of PERRY MASON—at the time of his death, he was the best-selling American author of all time, with hundreds of millions of books in print. Among those books were the 29 cases of the brash, irresistible detective team of Bertha Cool and Donald Lam. Last year, Hard Case Crime brought out the first new Cool and Lam novel in decades, THE KNIFE SLIPPED, lost for 77 years after Gardner’s publisher refused it. Now, we’re bringing you the book Gardner wrote to replace it, often considered the best in the series: TURN ON THE HEAT.


"A remarkable discovery...fans will rejoice at another dose of Gardner’s unexcelled mastery of pace and an unexpected new taste of his duo’s cyanide chemistry."—Kirkus Reviews on THE KNIFE SLIPPED


Hired by a mysterious "Mr. Smith" to find a woman who vanished 21 years earlier, Donald Lam finds himself facing a sadistic cop, a desperate showgirl, a duplicitous client, and one very dogged (and beautiful) newspaper reporter—while Bertha Cool’s attempts to cut herself in on this lucrative opportunity land them both hip-deep in murder...
  • First appearance in bookstores in half a century!
  • Erle Stanley Gardner remains one of the most popular American authors of all time
  • Features a new cover painting by Laurel Blechman, working from reference photos shot by the legendary pulp illustrator Robert Maguire.

Re: Hard Case Crime, Part 4

Yeah, my copy arrived yesterday. She's a beauty at 400+ pages.

Also, I see another Westlake title has been added to the catalog for a Feb 2018 release. This was last published in paperback in the late-80s by Mysterious Press. The original hardcover was published in the mid-70s and is difficult to find in good shape. I have the MP book and will likely pick this up being the HCC completest that I am.
