I’m very excited to have a story of mine, “The Death Fantastique,” in David Cranmer’s forthcoming ebook, Beat to a Pulp – Hardboiled. I’ve said it elsewhere and I’ll restate it here, David is one of the most stand-up guys in crime fiction and all of us at Needle are huge supporters of BTAP and all of David’s various endeavors.
For example, Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this ebook, or its successor, Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles Volume II, but it’s a collection of hardboiled western stories, by way of Elmore Leonard. And noir westerns are really a no brainer, when you think about it.
And the general public must agree. Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles has been #1 in Westerns on in the Kindle ranking system for like, I don’t know, thirty-five years. Forty maybe. It has fifty five star reviews. FIFTY. 50. Five and a zero. FIVE STAR REVIEWS. That’s getting up in oh shit territory.
So, not only does Mr. Cranmer foster and coordinate some of the best crime noir in town with his online zine Beat to a Pulp, he’s a helluva writer to boot…with spurs.
Getcha some Cash Laramie.
