Just Another Stiff: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 5

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 5 contains the first 11 Race Williams stories, all from 1935–38, as Daly left his long-time home of Black Mask for its main competitor, Dime Detective. And it’s prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks E. Hefner of James Madison University.

Just Another Stiff: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams Volume 5 continues this most important series published in years on the history of the Hard-Boiled Detective story.
