    1. I'm not a big fan of anthologies, but hot damn, what a line-up! Only the cream of the vintage pulp fiction crop: Hammett,Cain, Gil Brewer, Thompson, Westlake, Ellison, Willeford, Joe Gores, etc.Highlights include "Black Pudding" by David Goodis about a stew-bum on the lam hiding out with an opium addicted beauty."Preview of Murder" by Robert Leslie Bellem, great Hollywood private eye Kicking ass and taking names hard-boiled style all over Sunset and Vine. Bellem's a pretty funny writer."The Girl [...]

    2. This was a pretty good collection of pulp fiction from the 40s to the 90s. I had anticipated a collection of short stories mainly from the height of pulp fiction, especially those influential on many noir films, as I am a big fan of film noir. That was not necessarily the case, but many of them had the same language, gritty characters and dark, seedy underworlds. I enjoyed most of the stories, but a few of them were intolerably long. My favorites were: Flight to Nowhere - Charles WilliamsCigaret [...]

    3. This is a fun, highly readable anthology of classic and modern pulp stories. Overall, there's a good level of lurid action -- dames, tough guys who get knocked out a lot, gangsters, private eyes, mean streets, et cetera. The list of authors is a real Murderers' Row of talent.I did find some of the story selections very odd. Robert Block is a master of horror and crime stories, but he's represented by a third-rate effort which wouldn't even make a good Scooby-Doo episode. Reading this whole antho [...]

    4. Fantastic read! Huge fan of pulp crime and mystery stories and this collection has some great examples of why I love them! Robert Bloch's story Death is a Vampire is an excellently crafted tale of mystery and So Young, So Fair, So Dead by John Lutz stands as one of my favorite short stories of all time. This collection is filled with gems!

    5. Another winner from the Mammoth Book series. As is the case with most anthologies, some stories stack up better than others. Nonetheless it lives up to the Mammoth title and gives a very broad selection of hardboiled crime fiction. Dashiell Hammett, Mickey Spillane, Jim Thompson, Robert Bloch and many others are represented. The dialog of these stories alone are worth the read.

    6. It's like really big. Mammoth even. And there's pulp fiction bits in the middle. Some readable. Some not.
