It is a really enjoyable read and one that makes you think about how crap people can be to each other.

Just finished ROUND 2. Did so in a rush. There are twenty-nine stories in here plus an article on pulp art by Cullen Gallagher.

Something for everyone here: westerns, crime stories, horror, pirates, even a bit of science fiction.

Some favorites were LOST VALLEY OF THE SKOOCOOM by Matthew P. Mayo: I like Bigfoot stories. THE QUICK...AND THE DEAD, a really weird zombie story by Bill Crider. Evan Lewis' detective Skylar Hobbs mixes it up with fairies. James Reasoner's A WORLD YOU DON'T KNOW kept me guessing, and Ed Gorman does a turn in a western I'd read somewhere before.

Make no mistake. They are all good, both writers I was familiar with, those I had a passing acquaintance with, and a few new ones. Wayne Dundee gives us a short story with Joe Hannibal. Larry D. Sweazy moves us down the generations of his own Texas Rangers with a story set in the heyday of the pulps.

A fine assemblage of stories put together by David Cranmer and Matthew P. Mayo.

Highly recommended.

I used to think that all pulp stories were pretty much the same, but now I get it. There is a feel or an attitude that runs through all of the BTAP books. Each on it's own has a unique theme but there is definitely something intangible that ties them all together. This is certainly helped by the great covers that engender the style of the old paperback pulps but add a modern twist. I would talk about this in more detail but that is done a lot better than I could in the final section of this book. As usual for a book edited by David Cranmer there is an excellent forward that is not only interesting enough not to skip over but makes you stop and think. I like to think of them as a pulp adjustment phase.

There are just shy of thirty stories in this anthology and every single one stands up on it's own, each as different from the next as they were from the last. Sometimes the shift between subject matter can be quite abrupt, but that feeling of looking at the nasty side of society is always there. The star of this book for me was the story by Patricia Abbott. That lady has talent and is reason enough to buy this book. There are plenty of other excellent stories and more importantly for me there wasn't a single one that I didn't enjoy reading.

I read most of this book whilst feeling really ill in a hotel room hundreds of miles from home. Even though all I wanted to do was curl up and drift I could not put this book down. Morbid fascination held me in sway until I finished the book. It is a really enjoyable read and one that makes you think about how crap people can be to each other.

Another standout collection of stories. Pronzini, Gorman,Hendricks, Zeltserman; what a lineup. This book will keep you happy for many hours. Plus it brings us new work from two of my favorites, Jake Hinkson and local "Father of the Year", Keith Rawson. 29 stories at this price, from these author's is a steal. Also, make sure you get Round 1 as it is equally as good.
