I was in a bookstore yesterday for the first time in months, and finally got to see the new Hard Case Crime releases from Titan Books. The new, larger trade paperback size is certainly attractive, but it's going to make it a bitch shelving the new releases with the earlier, standard-sized, HCC titles.
I picked up two: Quarry's Ex by Max Allan Collins, and The Consummata by Mickey Spillane & Collins. The Consummata is the long-awaited sequel to Spillane's The Delta Factor, wrapped up and polished by Collins and published by HCC under this gorgeous Robert McGinnis cover painting.
Oh, by the way, I'll have some interesting news to share regarding my involvement with some Max Allan Collins re-releases soon.
