Summary

Summary

Packed solid with seven decades of pulp action and peopled by shady operators, voluptuous molls, ruthless big shots, crooked cops, and gruff private eyes, this new collection of hard-boiled tales includes classics by such masters of the craft as Dashiell Hammett, Robert Leslie Bellem, Cornell Woolrich, and Erle Stanley Gardner, as well as some of the best modern crime fiction to be published by postwar giants like John D. MacDonald, Ross McDonald, Ed McBain, Charles Willeford, David Goodis, and James Ellroy.

Publisher's Weekly Review

"Pulp fiction never dies!" proclaims Maxim Jakubowski and he might be right: the editor of The Mammoth Book of Pulp Fiction returns with The Mammoth Book of Pulp Action, a celebration of the hardboiled form. From Raoul Whitfield's 1929 "Sinners' Paradise" to Michael Guinzburg's 2000 "The Gangsta Wore Red," this volume has all the big guns, dirty cops, shady characters and dishonest damsels a pulp enthusiast could hope for.
