If Death Is Respectable: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 4
by Carroll John Daly; introduction by Brooks E. Hefner, cover photograph by Mark Krajnak
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 4 contains the next batch of Race Williams stories, all from 1932–34 as the door closed on Daly’s long run in Black Mask. Included here are the novels The Amateur Murderer and Murder From the East.
This collection also includes several Race Williams novelettes including “Merger With Death,” “If Death Is Respectable,” “Murder in the Open,” and “The Eyes Have It.” And it’s prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks E. Hefner of James Madison University.
The Complete Up and Down the Earth Tales (Deluxe Edition)
by Talbot Mundy, introduction by Brian Taves
The gifted romanticist, Talbot Mundy, offers in these pages an epic adventure spanning Africa, the Middle East, and Armenia in the early years of the 20th century. Mundy draws on a combination of personal experience and political conviction in portraying four fortune-hunters, Englishmen and American, who encounter colonial brutality in Africa, then join the defense of Armenia against Turkish genocide. This is the first book publication of this entire saga from the original magazine serialization, and includes an introduction by Mundy biographer Brian Taves explaining the genesis and impact of the stories. 614 oversized pages.
