The gimmick here is that Shaw and his friends come up with "discovered" classics of the genre in each issue, treasures from "a bygone era filled with wide-eyed innocence and mustaches." Most of these tales they invented themselves based on their own extensive reading of these books. Each has a convincing back story about how the particular yarn was discovered and biographical notes about the "authors," most of which are even funnier than the parodies themselves. Plus mustaches! (I did mention the mustaches, right?)
This particular issue features terrific stories by some of the best hardboiled writers in the racket today, including Ray Banks, Josh Stallings and Andrew Nette. But every issue -- and I own them all -- is equally hilarious..
If you love cornball adventure yarns and like to laugh, what better way to blend the two guilty pleasures than by reading clever parodies of those stories? I can't think of a single one -- of course my brain doesn't work as well as it did before I got pitched out the window during a knock-down, drag-out with my own personal favorite, The Defenstrator!
As Shaw says on his website, "The stories might not always be politically correct, but whether satire or homage, they will deliver on every page. Fast and fun, action and adventure, Blood & Tacos."
Again the idea that these are reprinted, newly discovered gems from the 70s & 80s is followed...
The stories are again top-notch, featuring tough guys, guns, action, & mustaches!
I sure hope they continue to be this excellent in the future, as I will pick up any new issues they throw down!
For the price, these, short and fast-paced little books can't be beat!
Nothing in this collection out of the ordinary, nothing to maintain in yor memory.
There really is a lot better out there,,in the pulp noir genre.
