Appreciate the link. And the info!

OOohh  I see, Killer Come Back To Me  :)   I like that place! Gonna get my browse on!

You're welcome.

Every time I turn around, HCC is publishing something cool. The Ray Bradbury collection you cited is a perfect example.  And Brian fucking DePalma wrote a book with Susan Lehman? What the hell? Another King book that is not your typical King? Wait, you found an unpublished novel by a deceased master pulp writer and it's coming out when? You even hooked up with that scary writing machine chick Joyce Carol Oates?

And so it goes.

It's always happy time when I check their site. 

Like everyone else, I can get wrapped up too much into tech.

I find it beneficial to always retain analog tethers. Hard Case Crime - with the retro art, wide author base, keen editing, and just their overall approach - contribute to some much needed goddamn grounding.

I'm not a number! I'm a free man!  etc

I visited a thrift store a little while back and found 15 John D. MacDonald books that were not Travis McGee.  All have those kinds of covers.  He reminds me of Kerouac a bit.  Perhaps because they were both drunk much of the time.

Hype warranted.

I'm working on this idea for SHARK TANK:

An IBM SELECTRIC styled typewriter with refrigerated rear storage cylinders for two cans of beer, using solid state Peltier effect cooling tech to keep cans hard chilled while wordsmithing on analog paper.

I will be needing one with a sepulchral black crinkle finish, so that I may fasten a 3/4 inch bas relief chrome human skull facing toward the typist -  as if Death itself is emerging from the typewriter key bay.

An Orator and a Courier ball or two and you will be all set.
Are we having fun yet?

And an ultra rare, after market Select Egyptian Hieroglyphs ball.

Then just sit back and wait for the magic to happen.
