BEAT TO A PULP #9!

BEAT TO A PULP #9!

HERE’S WHAT EDITOR DAVID CRANMER HAS TO SAY ABOUT BEAT TO A PULP’S LATEST STORY OFFERING . . .


Caveat Venditor, Caveat Emptor
by Todd Robinson

First, congrats to Todd and everybody at Thuglit, for the Edgar nomination of A Sleep Not Unlike Death by Sean Chercover, from their Hardcore Hardboiled collection. Hardcore is packed full of brutal, nasty, well-written tales we have come to expect from Big Daddy Thug and crew. I’ve read several in this collection and all are equally riveting. Todd has been kind enough to supply us with our ninth Weekly Punch at BTAP that’s an adrenalin rush to the end. Enjoy.

Next Week: The Toll Collectors by Chris F. Holm

Coming in March: A Stash of Goods by Barbara Martin

*We are looking for stories to fill the month of May at Beat to a Pulp. A harboiled yarn of a time-traveling cowboy who finds himself fighting Blackbeard on the high seas -or something pulpy like that- would be most welcome.
