Hard Case Crime

Recommended Posts

Does anyone read the Hard Case Crime books? They are paperbacks with lurid covers, often with a young woman showing some cleavage or leg. I have read five of them:

  • Blood on the Mink by Robert Silverberg
  • Cut Me In by Ed McBain
  • Joyland by Stephen king
  • Nobody's Angel by Jack Clark
  • The Vengeful Virgin by Gil Brewer


Often they are reprints of old pulp fiction stories. Joyland was only published a few years ago. I am not sure it is really crime, because of the supernatural element. Nobody's Angel was interesting. It was written by a Chicago taxi driver. It had quite a bit of sociology in it. If you want to know what it was like driving a taxi around Chicago in the 80s was like, it is probably your book.
