Gangman’s Gallows: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 6

Race Williams returns! Originally appearing in the pages of Black Mask Magazine, author Carroll John Daly pioneered the hard-boiled detective P.I. story and perfected the genre with his classic character, Race Williams. Apart from the novel-length Race Williams stories, these classic hard-boiled thrillers have rarely been reprinted, if ever. Volume 6 contains 11 Race Williams stories, all from 1938–41, as Daly closed out his lengthiest period of penning new Race Williams stories for Dime Detective Magazine.

It’s also prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks E. Hefner of James Madison University. Gangman’s Gallows: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams Volume 6 continues this most important series published in years on the history of the Hard-Boiled Detective story.
