Pulp Makes Triumphant Return

Who says no one reads books anymore? Thanks to Hard Case Crime, pulp-fiction is back with a vengance.

From World War II through the 1960s, paperback crime novels were one of the fastest-selling categories in book publishing. They were paperbacks you could fit in your back pocket, with jaw-dropping cover paintings and bare-knuckled prose that grabbed you by the collar with the first sentence and held you until the last page. No one’s published books like that in years.
Until now.
