HONEY IN HIS MOUTH!

HONEY IN HIS MOUTH!

Pulp legend Lester Dent, best known for Doc Savage and many other pulp heroes created during the 1930s, didn’t often venture outside the world of the pulp magazines.

According to the Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers, Dent started to turn his hand to crime fiction in the mid-1940s, selling a hardboiled novel called Cry at Dusk to Gold Medal in 1952. And then, that was it. Dent retired from the pulp and paperback game... until now.

Charles Ardai, somehow, has managed to find an unpublished hardboiled Dent novel called Honey in His Mouth, which Hard Case will publish this October.

Ardai is rapidly becoming a mystery icon for both his efforts as a publisher and for his own novels. He clearly loves his work.

I'm looking forward to reading this one. Lester Dent is one of the great pulp writers and I'm glad to see a mini-Dent revival. Kudos to Ardai.
