Hard Case Crime

Hard Case Crime brings you the best in hardboiled crime fiction, ranging from lost noir masterpieces to new novels by today’s most powerful writers, featuring stunning original cover art in the grand pulp style.


Seit 2004 haut die amerikanische Reihe Hard Case Crime von Charles Ardai and Max Phillips jeden Monat ein Taschenbuch in bester Pulp-Manier raus - Schmöker, wie sie einst waren. Storys um Detektive, gefährliche Frauen, Betrug, Rache, Liebe und Mord. Darunter Werke von Charles Willams, David Goodis oder Cornell Woolrich, genauso wie von Donald E. Westlake, Max Allan Collins oder Stephen King. Das ist schon was. Aber der wirkliche Hammer sind die Cover: die sind pulp durch und durch. Yeah!

Nach Verlagswechsel und kurzer Pause veröffentlicht HCC seit 2011 nicht mehr im monatlichen Rhythmus, dafür aber mit gelegentlichen Hardcover-Ausgaben.
